Why choosing a new WMS with an intuitive interface is the best option for your business

 In Blog

Given the wide range of WMS systems available, why is choosing a WMS with an intuitive interface the best option? 

There are many WMS systems on the market. But selecting the right one for your business isn’t just about broad functionality. Let’s look at the reasons for choosing an intuitive interface in more depth:

  • Ease of Transition: Using an intuitive interface simplifies your move to a new WMS, especially if you’ve used a paper-based system until now. Your warehouse staff are already facing a steep learning curve, intuitive interfaces make the transition as easy and painless as possible for them.
  • Increased User Adoption: User-friendly interfaces encourage higher adoption rates among employees – if your staff are overwhelmed, then they’ll revert to what they know rather than attempting (and failing) to correctly use the new software you’ve just installed.
  • Improved Efficiency: Streamlined workflows and easy access to features enhance operational efficiency. Give your staff only the information they need to do their own job – there’s no need for them to get lost in software designed for other jobs and used by other people. Provide a system that can be configured to show them exactly (and only) what they need to see when they log on to do their job.
  • Reduced Errors: Intuitive prompts and visual cues minimize mistakes and data entry errors. This is especially important if your staff have either used a different system (or no computer system at all) previously.
  • Enhanced Data Visibility: Clear displays provide real-time visibility into inventory, orders, and metrics. Let your warehouse staff easily find the data that they need to get you the cost savings that you are hoping for from this upgrade. And using a system that ensures data visibility is locked down to specific users (or types of user) means that your data is there for the people who need to see it, but invisible for the people that don’t.
  • Training and Onboarding: Intuitive design simplifies training and onboarding processes. This means that it’s fast and easy to train new staff if you have seasonal fluctuations. And it also means that it’s possible to allow people who are adjacent to your business to look at your data too – without spending huge amounts of time explaining to them what they are looking at.
