The Importance of a Reseller in Your WMS Purchase
Part of the process of purchasing a new warehouse management system is choosing your software reseller. While it may be tempting to eliminate the “middle man” in your system purchase, there are numerous reasons why you should work with a local, value-added reseller. Selecting the right reseller will help your WMS selection and implementation process be successful.
Value-added resellers exist because they can do their job more efficiently than you can. Resellers specialize in multiple software solutions, implementation processes, training and support. They bring a broad set of experience to your company so that you don’t have to staff that expertise in-house. You can rely on them to keep current on industry trends and new product functionality. In addition, resellers are often local industry experts who offer business consulting, local accountability and rapid support.
Choosing the right reseller is selecting a partner who will work with you to make your WMS decision and implementation successful and will offer expertise into the future. Here are some criteria you should look for when choosing a reseller.
Local industry expertise
As a company in the warehousing and distribution market, you want a reseller who understands your industry and local area dynamics. This expertise enables custom business applications and more personal service.
Complete service package
Your reseller should provide quality service in all areas related to your WMS. These services should include implementation, training, technical support, business consulting and system maintenance. In addition, you should expect your reseller to assist you in product upgrades.
You should look for a partner who listens to your needs and is able to clearly communicate. In addition, your reseller should provide regular information on industry trends and best practices that will help you reduce costs, improve operations and optimize processes.
Commitment to excellence
Your WMS installation is critical to your business. Your reseller should recognize the importance of this software to your business strategy and provide a product and installation that is free of errors.
You make a long-term investment with a WMS and your provider should be there for you throughout the lifetime of your installation. Having a consistent partner means that you are working with someone who knows your business and your systems.
