Your warehouse management system should be helping you work smarter, not harder. With an automated WMS, the only need for paper in your warehouse will be for the coffee orders.
Consider the hours currently spent on manual order entry and invoicing — and how many times you’ve searching for that piece of paper at a later date. Now imagine that the data entry is automated, inventory and stock information can be pulled up at any time by you, your customer or warehouse staff without you needing to search the filing cabinet.
Using a cloud-based WMS system automates data entry to increase accuracy, streamline workflows, optimize operations, reduce revenue leakage, and of course, save you hours each day in manual data management.
You can track incoming and outgoing orders, optimize your warehouse space, increase picking accuracy — and ultimately, increase business and revenue. Your customers will love it too, with all of their information, order statuses, and invoices available in their online portal.

Using an automated warehouse management system (WMS) like CartonCloud saves you time and energy by allowing you to remove the manual data entry process all-together.
The system pulls existing data directly from email attachments, FTP, API and/or integrations to systems such as Shopify, Xero, SAP, MYOB (+ many others), so you have access to real-time data, with the system automatically optimizing your inventory and stock allocation.
- Increase accuracy for picking and packing.
With an automated WMS and barcode scanning application, you can reduce time locating inventory in the warehouse, automatically routing pickers on the most efficient paths, have 100% accuracy when picking stock, and keep track of inventory movement with real-time data. CartonCloud's intuitive mobile app is available for both Android and iOS operating systems with product and location scanning as you pick, as well as other scanning options, to ensure you have accuracy in stock leaving the warehouse, and the ability to provide clients with a real-time view of order progress and stock levels.
