A Guide to Warehouse Digitalisation and Its Benefits

A guide to warehouse digitalisation and its benefits

As the demand in the eCommerce landscape grows, many sellers are starting to realise the need to make fundamental changes to their warehouse operations. Traditional warehouse methods are no longer effective in keeping up with customer expectations. That is why the digitalisation of warehouses is becoming increasingly popular among sellers who are looking for ways to enhance their business efficiency.

What is Warehouse Digitalisation?

Warehouse digitalisation is the process of leveraging modern technology to improve and optimize warehouse operations. This process involves integrating with warehouse automation tools that can assist in simplifying workloads, preventing fulfillment mistakes and expanding order fulfillment capacity.

Let’s have a look at some of the benefits of warehouse digitalisation.

How can you benefit from warehouse digitalisation?

1. Systematic inventory management

Warehouse digitalisation enables real-time tracking of your business inventory levels and movements. This is great for maintaining the accuracy of your inventory management. Automated inventory management will ensure that there are minimal inventory errors and that your inventory counts are updated at all times, between your warehouse and sales channels. At the same time, you can reduce the risk of overstocking or understocking in your business.

2. Minimise business cost

Warehouse digitalisation is a great solution to reduce operational costs by having certain workloads automated. Thus, you won’t have to hire more staff to assist with order fulfillment during peak sales season. This leads to an increase in efficiency and a decrease in labor costs. In addition, you’ll be able to prevent any business loss by not overstocking or understocking products for sale.

3. Faster fulfillment, satisfied customer

Build your base of happy, satisfied customers by improving your order fulfillment speed. Utilise automation for your order fulfillment to speed up your order picking and packing processes. That way, you can deliver the orders quickly and your customers will be happy to receive their orders earlier than the expected time. Furthermore, there are various powerful tools that you can utilise to ensure the accuracy of your orders. This will reduce the likelihood of your customers receiving the wrong orders.

4. Staff performance tracking

It is not easy to track who did what and how was their productivity in a traditional warehouse operation setting. Only with a digitalised warehouse will these trackings be possible. You will be able to know who packed which order and how many orders were packed by each staff. At the end of the day, you can even reward your top-performing staff and encourage good work among all staff.

5. Multi-warehouse management

If you own several warehouses for your business, digitalising your warehouse will be essential for your business. It will greatly help you in coordinating stock transfers between warehouses. Not only that, it will also be a lot easier to monitor stock-ins and stock-outs for multiple warehouses all at once.

In a nutshell, warehouse digitalisation is important for any business looking to remain competitive in the eCommerce industry. In a world where technology is making its way to simplify human tasks, it would be foolish not to take advantage of this technological advancement to grow your business.
