The #1 NetSuite Warehouse Management System (WMS)
What is Warehouse Management
Optimize your warehouse operations with NetSuite Warehouse Management System (WMS), which offers advanced capabilities like RF-device-directed putaway and picking tasks, wave management, cartonization, cycle count planning, real-time inventory updates, and shipping system integrations. With hundreds or even thousands of SKUs to handle, often across multiple locations, warehouse management can quickly become a manual, chaotic, and inefficient process if you’re relying on spreadsheets or pen and paper. NetSuite WMS eliminates manual processes, allowing you to minimize handling costs, run your warehouses more efficiently, and consistently meet customer expectations.
Executing warehouse processes on a mobile device can enhance inventory accuracy and reduce the time spent searching for and handling items. Users are directed to perform essential tasks, from receiving and storing goods to picking and shipping them, in the most efficient manner possible.
The WMS mobile application updates or creates the appropriate transaction and associated inventory data in NetSuite in real-time as an item is scanned. This ensures transaction and inventory transparency across the entire organization.
No Syncing Required
Eliminate the need for manual data synchronization between different systems. NetSuite’s suite of connected applications allows for seamless communication between inventory management, order fulfillment, and manufacturing systems, providing all teams with access to the same real-time information.

Ensure speedy and accurate order fulfillment with the use of wave release and intelligent pick-and-pack strategies for both single and multi-order picking.
The NetSuite WMS mobile application empowers users to efficiently perform daily tasks associated with receiving, putaway, picking and packing from their mobile devices. This not only increases efficiency, but also minimizes human error and provides accurate data with real-time visibility.
NetSuite WMS offers a comprehensive set of features to manage inventory using bins. However, for locations that do not require bins, such as retail stores and small warehouses, NetSuite provides mobile picking functionality without the overhead of managing bins. You can easily create wave transactions, process orders, and manage inventory on a mobile device. Additionally, you can define stock locations, associate them with items, and view stock locations assigned to goods being processed, all from a mobile device.
Challenges NetSuite Warehouse Management Solves
Lack of Item Visibility within the Warehouse: Real-time visibility of item quantities and their status by bin location is provided as goods enter, move within, and leave the warehouse.
Data Input Errors: Receive orders with greater accuracy and efficiency by inputting item characteristics using a mobile device at the time of receipt.
Inefficient Use of Warehouse Space: Optimizing the warehouse layout is an important aspect of efficient warehouse operations. To improve efficiency, fast-moving products should be stored near fulfillment centers and like items should be grouped together.
Redundancy Around Order Picking: Optimize order picking efficiency by grouping like orders with wave release and multi-order picking. This allows for the picking of items for multiple orders in a single pass through the warehouse, minimizing travel time and increasing accuracy.
Inaccurate Order Picking: Guide users through the most efficient picking process for each order using streamlined mobile device workflows.
