|WOLF Tool for WMS Selection|
Jeroen van den Berg Consulting investigated the Benelux market for warehouse management systems (WMS). WOLF is the corrensponding online selection tool which helps you to identify the best candidates for your warehouse operation. After using WOLF you can download the associated report WMS Market 2008.
How to use WOLF?
WOLF is the WMS OnLine Finder. Using WOLF is easy. Click “start WOLF” at the bottom of this page. Subsequently, select the items that best describe your requirements. For extra information on an item in the list, simply click the question mark icon on the right. After you have specified all requirements, click “compute scores” at the bottom of the page and WOLF shows you the overall scores of the various systems.
Our study uses a unique approach. Instead of investigating the functional capabilities of systems, we have asked the vendors to characterise their target group. The idea behind this approach is that a vendor typically has in-depth functionality and broad experience to serve its target market. Accordingly, WOLF finds an excellent match between your requirements and the vendors’ capabilities.
Online WMS Selection Engine
In our survey, we invited the participating software vendors to score their target group with respect to twenty relevant topics regarding warehousing characteristics, assortment, IT requirements and warehouse management functions. WOLF selects from 28 different WMS's.
The vendors' scores have been incorporated in WOLF, our online WMS finder. Specify your warehousing requirements in WOLF and it calculates the individual scores of the vendors on these requirements. The vendors with the highest scores, focus most on your type of business. Include these vendors in your WMS selection as your first step to a successful project.
Start your own WMS Selection
Use WOLF to find a long list of up to eight candidates. Contact these vendors and evaluate their WMS functionality, implementation and support capabilities, technology and continuity of business to identify your ideal vendor.
