WMS Module Development
Developing specific modules or components to add functionality to your existing WMS, such as order management, inventory tracking, reporting modules, or other customized workflows.
AI, ML or IoT integration
Enhance warehouse operations by integrating cutting-edge technologies. Artificial intelligence improves decision-making through predictive analytics, machine learning refines processes based on historical data, and Internet of Things connects sensors for real-time monitoring, ultimately optimizing inventory management, reducing costs, and increasing efficiency in warehouse operations.
Our Warehousing Management System Development Process
To deliver a WMS tailored to your business objectives, we initiate a series of discussions involving your team, our project and account managers. Our aim is to gather the functional and non-functional requirements for the system, determine the technology stack, establish a collaborative framework, define team composition, and review project estimates and deliverables.
Prior to commencing development, we transform your warehouse management system concept into a well-thought-out design. After conducting extensive UX research and considering user personas, we deliver wireframes, gradually refining them into a self-contained user interface.
We write the code for the WMS, design its architecture, and configure the back-end. This includes creating software components and implementing algorithms for tasks like inventory optimization, order processing, and other core functions. Our team also ensures seamless integration with other systems and link the front-end to the WMS's user interface.
Before deployment, the warehouse management system software gets thoroughly tested. These tests include unit testing to verify the correctness of individual WMS components, integration testing to ensure these components work harmoniously, and user acceptance testing (UAT) to confirm user-friendliness and navigation ease.
Subsequently, we deploy the WMS on the designated hardware or cloud infrastructure, with data migration as necessary. We then launch the WMS for live operations, conducting thorough checks to ensure all systems are functioning flawlessly.
Post-deployment, our team maintains ongoing communication to provide regular software updates, address any bugs that may arise, and accommodate system scaling based on your requirements.

Is custom WMS better than Oracle warehouse management systems?
Custom warehousing software is specifically developed to meet the unique needs of a particular business, while Oracle warehouse management system is a commercially available, off-the-shelf solution. Bespoke software is built from the ground up or tailored to fit the specific requirements and processes of the organization, offering a high degree of customization. On the other hand, Oracle WMS provides a standardized set of features and functionalities that may require some configuration but are not as highly customizable as custom software.
How long does custom WMS development take?
The development timeline for custom warehouse management software systems is influenced by various factors beyond SDLC and team size. It can take longer the more complex are requirements; extensive data integration, regulatory compliance, and changes during development can extend timing too. The MVP takes around 6 months, while the full-scale development never takes less than a year.
Some secondary factors influencing this can be resource availability, comprehensive testing, effective project management, and budget constraints.
