Until recently there was not a good option for small to medium sized businesses (SMB) that needed basic warehouse management functionality. You had to pay for the software, pay for the hardware, and pay for the implementation, and for a SMB this could amount to a rather large amount. Insight Works recognized this and released WMS Express, a free warehouse management app.
How many features could a free warehouse management app have? Actually, a lot.
WMS Express integrates mobile devices into your warehouse to improve efficiency and accuracy through the use of scannable barcodes. Here's a quick overview of the software's capabilities.
