Building a business case and gaining approval for a new or replacement WMS is a difficult process. This Gartner research: Answer These 7 Questions to Position the Strategic Arguments for a New or Replacement WMS, gives supply chain leaders with IT responsibilities seven key questions to answer so they can begin to prepare a compelling strategic case for a new WMS before gaining buy-in.

At Accelogix, we believe supply chain leaders can use this model to:

  • Determine the strategic arguments for a new or replacement WMS by soliciting answers to the seven questions outlined in this research. Examine the details of those questions that most closely align to your situation, business strategy and objectives.
  • Combine and refine the arguments derived from answering these questions to sell the concept of a new or replacement WMS. Clearly articulate each type of benefit, even if it is “soft,” so you can assess the risk if the business selects a different option.
