Does your warehouse face performance issues after a SAP EWM system implementation? Picking errors, delays in order fulfillment, higher-than-normal inventory discrepancies happen on a daily basis?

Inefficiencies in warehouse operations and frequent system downtimes can significantly impact warehouse productivity, indicating the need for an expert audit.

Unlock the Full Potential of Your Warehouse Management System! Get an expert WMS Audit by TeamIdea to drive operational excellence. Let your WMS ensure optimal performance, compliance, and alignment with business objectives.





When do you Need to Conduct a Warehouse Management System Audit?

  • 1. Performance Issues: to discover and fix the system inefficiencies, such as slow response time, delays or failures in data synchronization with other systems (e.g., ERP, MES), improper usage due to the lack of training, etc.
  • 2. Compliance and Standards: to ensure that the WMS complies with industry regulations and adheres to the company's internal operational standards and policies.
  • 3. Scalability and Growth: to ensure that WMS can scale accordingly to business expansion plans (whether by increasing the volume of inventory, adding new product lines, or opening new warehouse locations).
  • 4. Technological Advancements: when integrating the WMS with new technologies or systems, such as IoT devices or robotics, to enable seamless integration and functionality.
  • 5. Cost Management: when there is an unexplained increase in warehouse operational costs – to ensure that the WMS continues to deliver the expected ROIs and benefits to the organization and identify areas where resource savings can be achieved.
  • 6. User Feedback: when there is an increase in customer complaints related to order accuracy, delivery times, or inventory availability or when the warehouse staff increasingly reports about WMS issues, such as usability problems or errors.
  • 7. Data Accuracy and Reporting: when you notice frequent or significant discrepancies between reported and actual inventory levels or the WMS fails to provide accurate and timely reports that are critical for decision-making and strategic planning.
  • 8. Process Changes: when there are significant changes in warehouse processes or workflows, such as implementing new picking strategies, to ensure the WMS aligns with and supports them.
  • 9. Periodic Reviews: regular audits as part of routine WMS maintenance and continuous improvement programs to ensure ongoing optimization and performance.

Why Choosing TeamIdea?

We are a team of seasoned country managers who are fed up with theoretical, cookie-cutter consulting that ends with a presentation full of impractical, fictional improvements.

Our expertise lies in building business processes, integrating operations, aligning function goals, and achieving maximum results. We firmly believe that the supply chain isn't just a separate function within a company; it's the entire journey from raw material suppliers to the buyer's basket. Improving a single logistics function within the company is far less effective than enhancing the entire system, in collaboration with partners and suppliers.

Our approach isn't about consultants working from a separate office; we embed ourselves within key business units. Using the Shadowing technique, we work side by side with your team, identifying problem areas, and diving deep into the details. We critically assess long-standing practices and offer the best market-proven alternatives tailored to your specific conditions.
The results we propose are not just customized to your business but enriched with the best examples from the most successful companies.
