SoftDoit, the software comparator, has presented a study about the WMS software in which highlights that suppliers have increased their sales in comparison with the previous year.
The nº1 software comparator in Spain and Latin America SoftDoit has published the report about the Actual situation of the Warehouse Management Software (WMS). The study has involved the participation of 42 of the most relevant WMS software suppliers of the Spanish market, Tecsidel Logistics Systems within them.
Among the main conclusions of the report, which has been presented by Lluís Soler Gomis, Founder and CEO of SoftDoit, it should be noted that 69% of the consulted companies assures that the sales of WMS software this 2016 have increased in comparison to the previous year.
Regarding the hosting model they offer, the study shows that confidence in the cloud is increasing, since more than 70% offers the possibility to host the WMS solution both in the cloud and in the own servers of the company. However, 26,8% only gives the possibility to implement it inhouse, which means that it will take time for cloud computing to adapt completely.
Furthermore, most of them agree regarding the selling method of the WMS solution: more than 95% does it through license, while 2,4% sell free software, the same percentage that commercializes the solution in freeware modality.
The most used method to channel sales and implementations is both through channel and its own way, since more than 52% of the companies seeks both methods. Regarding the rest, about 43% does them directly, without the participation of the channel, and less than 5% is completely confident about the distribution channel for it.
Finally, in reference to the WMS future 5 years from now, most of the companies consider that cloud computing and SaaS will evolve, to achieve faster implementations. Moreover, flexibility and adaptation to the clients needs will become more significant.
