Nisum Helps Increase Warehouse Efficiency by 80% via Custom Warehouse Management Open Systems (WMoS)

Dec 17, 2020 4:50:45 PM

Nisum customized a WMoS that was scalable and flexible, which improved system efficiency and increased order processing capacity for distribution centers.



The customized distribution center (DC) interfaces were easily integrated with the client's modern tech stack, allowing for interaction across other warehouse execution systems, resulting in:

  • +400% increase in unit transactions per day per fulfillment center

Business Challenge:

A Fortune 500 retail client faced many technical challenges in terms of scalability and execution with nWMS (IBM Commerce Warehouse Management Tool), creating difficulties in setting up new warehouses and integrating warehouse management tools with other systems. This led to:

  • Delays in order fulfillment, creating:
    • Loss of potential revenue
    • Frustrated customers facing longer delivery times
  • Reaching order processing rate threshold, preventing sales growth
  • System downtime when changes were made to the rigid processing flow


Nisum customized a WMoS that was a highly scalable and easily integrated solution, interacting with multiple systems and easily deployed on the cloud, resulting in: 

  • Efficient interaction between systems (eg. orders, inventory, finance, etc.): 
    • Increased order processing rates 
    • Advocated sales growth
    • Improved supply chain visibility for customers throughout purchase and delivery processes
  • A greater capacity to manage spikes in transactions with horizontal scalability
  • Reduced system downtime by increasing system flexibility gained from environment agnostic code
