The Benefits of Using Mobile Apps for Warehouse Management

October 20th 2015 18:00:36 PM

Five years ago, the concept of using mobile apps to support business operations would have sounded absurd. While mobile technology was certainly a staple in the life of the everyday consumer, businesses had not begun to adopt the technology into the office for business purposes. In fact, five years ago, companies were trying to figure out how to limit mobile device usage during the workday.

Fast forward five years, and the business landscape looks completely different. Mobile technology has become a staple in the workplace, and CFOs and CEOs are even encouraging staff to use mobile devices to accomplish work both inside and outside of the office. Warehouse managers are using mobile apps to connect to their ERP and WMS systems, track inventory and create the reports they need to monitor warehouse productivity. Sales personnel are using mobile sales apps to close deals faster, and field service technicians are tracking service schedules with an app on their smartphone. To say that mobile technology has changed the way companies do business would be an understatement; it has transformed it.

Even if you are using mobile warehouse management apps to support your operations, are you aware of all the benefits mobile apps can deliver? We’ve created a short list that summarizes the key benefits of using mobile apps for warehouse management:

  • Improved business intelligence
  • Real-time information and reporting
  • Increased sales
  • Improved efficiency
  • Higher productivity
  • Cost-savings (labor, hardware, etc.)
