Editorial Reviews

Review

This publication continues to be the best available source of information about warehouse software. The second edition is an improvement over the first with a 55 page addition, and new material including diagrams and pictures in every chapter. A chapter about implementation has been added. Warehouse operators who are considering the purchase of new software need to study this book. --Ken Ackerman - Warehousing Forum Newsletter

From the Publisher

There is NO OTHER BOOK on the market that educates the reader on what different functional items exist and what missing functionality to ask for! The author has done an extremely great job - to educate - to share - to enable the logistics-operations-IT-ISVs professionals to be FULLY PREPARED via a knowledge increase.

This book comes from one who has done a multitude of hands-on WMS selection projects and has seen the best, the mediocre, and the bad software! This book is a very wise and small investment to make sure you get the right software!!!

Format: Perfect Paperback
This book should be the first step in your WMS project. With the variety of functionality now offered by WMS providers it can be a daunting task to try to understand what a WMS does and (more importantly) what a WMS can do for your operation. Not only does the author cover standard functionality of WMS, he takes it a step further by pointing out "Differentiators" and "Common Deficiencies". These insights can prove to be incredibly valuable during the selection and implementation processes. The book is essentially a detailed report on WMS functionality with an additional section on the selection process (including step-by-step instructions and sample documents). The format makes it easy to simply open the book to a section on a specific type functionality and quickly get up to speed on key issues related to that topic.

Yes, it may seem a little pricey, but in the context of the overall costs associated with a WMS project, it's a minuscule price to pay to increase your chance of getting it right.

I came to the project on an executive level having little to no expertise in Warehouse Management Software(WMS). From the onset of my reading "Selecting Warehouse Software from WMS & ERP Providers" it proved to be everything and far more than I could have ever begin to appreciate. I now had the necessary information to mentally order an understanding of the difference between the WMS and ERP products, and a quiet ensued from what had felt like a swirling flood, leaving me with the sensation of being carried away in the wash of which software vendors, what product differential and what were the essentials.

From here I was able to move, and more competently frame the requirements for our own organizational needs. The author approached this written work with a sensitivity of the immense challenge the average person would face when taking on the warehouse universe and its technical requirements, by him demonstrating a simplistic and readable way of presenting the invaluable information contained within the work. The section identifying WMS software vendors and ERP supply chain software providers is simply priceless, and worth the cost of the book all by itself. I have since purchased more of the series and can now intelligently approach "applying the right software solution" with added confidence.

Format: Perfect Paperback
This is a very relevant and concise overview of warehouse management system evaluation and implementation processes. Obal does a great job of giving comprehensive evaluation criteria and pointing out potential "gotchas" you might face in an evaluation process. The book is geared towards more complex operating environments so smaller warehouse operations may find the RPF approach a bit overwhelming. However, it is a great educational tool that highlights the numerous possibilities with available technology. The book lacks a serious discussion on the critical nature of the relationship between the warehouse operation and the software company. Access to key resources (both electronically and geographically), investment of time on the part of the provider (billed and unbilled), vendor expertise/advisory capabilities and value added options (such as remote hosting) are not highlighted and could play a critical part in your implementation.

Overall, this book is a great educational tool. It is well worth the money for any organization looking to embark on a WMS project or wanting to improve an existing implementation.
