Warehouse Management Software Checklist

Use this WMS requirements list to select the most appropriate warehouse management software (WMS) for your needs. These warehouse management software (WMS) requirements should be assessed for their different features. These include general features and those for picking and packing, inventory control, shipping, etc.

This warehouse management software checklist evaluates the different features according to three categories: Excellent, Adequate and Deficient. Thanks to the stored score system, additional warehouse management software can then be analyzed to see how well they match your requirements for a WMS.
