Top Warehouse Management Systems for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 


    Email | Print

    Microsoft Dynamics products are built in such a way that add-on products and capabilities can expand and enhance each customers' experience.  One of the main benefits of this add-on approach is that there are numerous choices for critical parts of your ERP system.  Not all warehouse management systems are built equally, and not all companies have the same warehouse needs.

     

    Microsoft delivers Business Central out-of-the-box with a strong warehouse control system.  There isn't any official Microsoft mobile scanner software product, but the system has all the underpinning and architecture to handle very complex requirements.  Many companies reap huge benefits moving from a spreadsheet-based system to the out of the box Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central warehousing by itself.

     

    That said, sometimes users need to interface with barcode enabled mobile devices. Any serious investigation into barcode warehousing solutions for Dynamics 365 Business Central should consider these next few products.

     

    Warehouse Insights

    Our friends at Insight Works have one of our favorite products for Dynamics 365 Business Central.  Currently, the only WHMS product listed on AppSource, "Warehouse Insights" is more deeply embedded with Business Central manufacturing than any other product in this class. www.dmsiworks.com

     

    Lanham Warehouse Management

    As much as Warehouse Insights has deep integration with manufacturing, Lanham products have a terrific integration with EDI and supply chain businesses.  Considered leaders in MRP, EDI, and warehousing in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, Lanham is clearly a top warehouse management add-on. www.lanhamassoc.com

     

    TF Mobile

    Tasklet Factory has a mobile WMS for Dynamics 365 Business Central and advertises itself as easy to install and use. It looks to be designed for Android devices (which are less expensive and more modern than some of the Windows CE devices) but is fully integrated with Business Central.  www.taskletfactory.com

     

    Honorable Mentions

    These products have integrations with older Dynamics products and are not advertising their move to Business Central. That means that Business Central cloud customers might have to pass on this product (for now) but businesses with on-premise deployments could look at it.

     

    Highjump WMS for Dynamics NAV

    Highjump is a strong warehouse management solution as well, but as of this writing hasn't moved from the more classic Dynamics NAV integrations to Business Central.  www.highjump.com

     

    Without Wire

    Without wire is similar to Highjump and for much the same reason has landed on our honorable mentions list.  www.withoutwire.com

     

    Keep your eye on both HighJump and Without Wire for announcements supporting Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central in 2019 or 2020.  Additionally, for more information on Warehouse Management, check out our latest blogs on 4 benefits of Business Central warehouse management, and 4 mistakes people make when implementing barcode warehouse management.
