With all the talk about Software as a Service (SaaS) recently, it's no wonder that that 55% of small and midsize companies currently have at least one SaaS application running, says research firm Saugatuck Technology.  Industry experts also estimate that by 2010, 30% of all new software will be delivered via an SaaS model. Whatsmore, virtually all new software venture money is flowing to SaaS startups these days, rather than to costly traditional software companies.

Software as a Service for the WarehouseOne particular industry reaping the benefits of the SaaS model is the Warehousing Industry. The benefits of using Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) SaaS applications are substantially impressive.  The significantly smaller start up costs and shorter deployment times make SaaS applications ideal for the warehousing industry.  

SaaS in the warehouse doesn't leave you with less functionality.  You can still have all of the features of a tier 1 warehouse management system and specific web-based features such as tracking inventory levels, locations, suppliers, orders, invoices, etc through a web browser and thus eliminating the need for in house servers, maintenance, or support.  Even with SaaS, yor WMS can also be integrated with barcode reading systems, RF, and even RFID (radio frequency identification) for high tech tracking.  

If SaaS is a more efficient delivery method for using a WMS, what are the benefits that you can expect from a SaaS-delivered WMS?  The answer is simple.  SaaS and the WMS applications can benefit your warehouse in three fundamental ways:

  1. Greater Efficiency in Your Warehouse Operations
  2. Drives More Revenue through Value-Added Offering
  3. Reduce Costs, Speed Payments, and Improve Cash Flow

Opting for these integrated WMS solutions is an increasingly popular strategy among warehousing companies. Because WMS increases efficiency and drives in more revenue at a significantly lower cost than traditional software models, the future of the Warehousing Industry lies with delpoying your WMS in a SaaS environment.
