What is NetSuite Warehouse Management?
NetSuite Warehouse Management System (WMS) optimizes day-to-day warehouse operations using industry-leading practices, such as mobile RF barcode scanning, defined strategies for putaway and picking, task management, return authorization receipts and cycle count plans. With hundreds or even thousands of SKUs to handle, often across multiple locations, warehouse management can quickly become a manual, chaotic and inefficient process if you're relying on spreadsheets — or worse, pen and paper. NetSuite WMS eliminates manual processes, allowing you to minimize handling costs, run your warehouses more efficiently and consistently meet customer expectations.
Performing warehouse processes on a mobile device improves inventory accuracy and reduces the time spent searching for and handling items. Users are guided to complete important tasks, from receiving and storing items to picking and shipping them, in the most efficient way possible.
As an item is scanned, the WMS mobile application immediately updates or creates the proper transaction and associated inventory data in NetSuite, providing transaction and inventory transparency across the entire organization.
We have seen a 20% improvement to employee productivity since implementing NetSuite WMS and the related process changes.
NetSuite Warehouse Management Benefits
NetSuite Warehouse Management Features
Mobile receiving and predefined putaway strategies ensure items are received accurately, relevant data is captured and recorded, and items are stored in a way that best utilizes warehouse space.
Ensure orders are filled quickly and accurately using wave release and intelligent pick-and-pack strategies for both single- and multi-order picking.
Mobile Warehouse Management
The NetSuite WMS mobile application enables users to perform daily tasks associated with receiving, putaway, picking and packing directly from a mobile device. This increases efficiency, minimizes human error and delivers accurate data with real-time visibility.
NetSuite WMS offers robust functionality to manage inventory using bins. NetSuite also enables locations without bins, such as retail stores and small warehouses, to benefit from the efficiency of mobile picking without the overhead of managing bins. Create wave transactions and, on a mobile device, perform order processing and inventory management tasks, define stock locations and associate them with items and view stock locations assigned to goods being processed, from a mobile device.
NetSuite Smart Count is an inventory cycle counting solution that enables organizations to improve the efficiency and accuracy of management by automating inventory counts without freezing transactions in the entire location. The inventory level used for the count is taken at the time the count starts for each individual item. Smart Count keeps track of transactions that happen for the items being counted, and if there is any activity during the count, NetSuite automatically alerts counters so they can react appropriately. Preferences allow administrators to choose what happens if the on-hand quantity changes for an item during the count process.
