The ideal route to LVS replacement

Industry trends and a customized roadmap

The reasons for replacing the existing warehouse management system (WMS) are numerous and sometimes urgent. However, managers often fear that the change will involve a lengthy conversion process that will disrupt or even temporarily shut down operations. This is why a replacement project is often delayed. Unitechnik conducted a survey to uncover the wishes, reservations and goals of warehouse operators.

The survey with more than 50 participants yielded exciting results: For example, would you have thought that a third of respondents were dissatisfied with their current warehouse management system? Or that the planning expertise of the provider is more important to many participants than industry-specific process knowledge?

    Among other things, the following topics will be examined in more detail:

    • What types of WMS do companies use?
    • How satisfied are they with their current WMS?
    • Reasons for and against a change of WMS
    • Expectations of the WMS provider
    • Desired functions of the new WMS
    • Willingness to invest in a new system

    New Unitechnik white paper on the topic of avalanche transceiver replacement

    We have created a white paper based on the survey results. In it, the statements from the industry are clearly presented and analyzed. In addition to the advantages and disadvantages of a WMS change, the white paper also presents important criteria for selecting software and providers. A best practice shows which steps are essential during the course of replacement projects in practice.

    From taking stock to testing the software to the actual go-live, the reader is given an overview of all the important steps involved in a WMS changeover. An excursus on a successful replacement project, realized by Unitechnik, completes the guide.
