The »WMS Online Selection«

How Can Warehouse Management Systems from Different Providers Be Compared with Each Other?

An essential premise for business success is the continuous optimisation of your own logistics processes. Disproportionately increasing process complexity results in continuously increasing requirements with regard to cost and performance transparency in the warehouse. For this reason, the selection of a suitable WMS is of strategic importance. However, this process is often very time-consuming and costly.

In addition, it has been observed that almost every second company has problems in IT projects, which can be traced back to deficits in the tendering process.The most common cause here are usually unclear criteria in the selection of providers and systems. To avoid such sources of error in advance and to select an optimal Warehouse Management System, our service offers the possibility to compare a vast number of different WMS with each other. With the help of our neutral and independent »WMS Online Selection« we bring WMS providers, users and consultants together in a perfect fit! This service makes it possible to avoid complex and cost-intensive processes. Thus, we support companies in the selection of the optimally suitable WMS and provider - in an individual, uncomplicated, fast and cost-effective manner.

Using the »WMS Online Selection«

In order to bring WMS providers, users, and consultants togethter, certain knock-out criteria must be first defined that have to be fulfilled by the system. In the next step, users refine and weight their requirement profile for the WMS in order to obtain an overview of the suitable Warehouse Management Systems after evaluation. The results of the »WMS Online Selection« thus support the company in the decision-making process for a new system.

The procedure within the selection therefore comprises four steps, which are described below.

1. K.O. Criteria

  • Determination of knock-out criteria that need to be fulfilled by each system
  • Exclusion of unsuitable systems for further selection

2. General and Specific weighting

  • Refinement of an individual requirement profile based on approx. 3,700 functional criteria of our WMS questionnaire
  • Weighting of individual categories, questions and aspects using a scale to increase the level of detail of the evaluation (scale from 0 to 3 or 5 - depending on the type of access)

3. Evaluation
