Visualization: A Winning WMS Strategy
Visualization is changing the way distribution works, and giving the companies who use these tools a winning edge in their supply chains. Learn how these tools allow companies to respond faster to consumer and partner demands while reducing workforce training time. Real-life examples will demonstrate how a combination of visualization via an intuitive, graphical interface—integrated into a warehouse management system (WMS), transportation management system (TMS), other supply chain software—delivers results.
