At the speed WMS and distribution operations technology is evolving, it’s difficult to know which vendor is right for you. Focused on what you need and your customers demand, we develop holistic, long-term strategies for your warehouse management system.
We founded Longbow as experts in distribution center operations before we were experts in software. If you visit our “Why Longbow” page, you’ll see that we are inspired when we recognize a need for a data service platform that could make it easy for anyone to get more information – and value – from their WMS, LMS and TMS.
Since then, we’ve made sure to build our software expertise, bringing on board a select team of people who are supply chain execution system gurus with warehouse operations sensibility.
We know that technology alone isn’t the answer. WMS implementations can be complex, so our Warehouse Management Services team strives to make yours more simple with a proven, repeatable methodology – ABCD (Assess, Build, Confirm, Deploy). We map out every step and milestone, from the initial facility walk-through to cutover, training and support, to ensure that your project stays on schedule and on budget.
The breadth of services we bring to your engagement spans the spectrum of capabilities required to take your project from assessment to systems implementation.
Scoping of budget, timeline, business and infrastructure requirement and proof-of-concept.
Roadmap definition and WMS/LMS business case development, an essential “reality check” to ensure you’ll meet KPI requirements and get the ROI you deserve.
Collaboration amongst all stakeholders and our technical staff to determine exactly what’s needed from business and systems perspective now and in the future.
Where the project moves from concept and development into a fully operational system driving unprecedented efficiencies and productivity.
Highly responsive assistance including business and systems reviews as well as hosting and technical support, and an option for 24/7/365 technical assistance.
Making changes to the system that impacts every part of your business calls for anticipating user needs, understanding and mitigating risks and methodical, highly experienced project management.
Getting ahead of change is key. We’ll educate your super-users, end users and internal trainers, while providing communications that keep everyone informed about the project, impact on roles and expectations.
Here is a tool to help you stay on track to implementation success. This checklist will help ensure you cover all the critical steps in your WMS project.
