If your are managing a warehouse for an online business or a physical retail operation your success and customer satisfaction is determined by how fast you can move products out once an order is received. Amazon.com, Netflix, UPS, FEDEX and others all live and die by this principle.
Sage Software recently announced Sage Accpac WMS (Warehouse Management System) 5.0, a major new upgrade, with improved integration and administration, that will enable small and mid-sized warehouse operations to more effectively compete with their larger competitors by providing them with powerful, cost-effective distribution tools to more efficiently ‘pick, pack and ship.’?
Sage’s press releases reads Sage Accpac WMS 5.0 offers greater efficiency and accuracy to businesses, through increased pick rates, decreased errors, higher compliancy, and accurate forecasting of warehouse resources and demands. Integrating with various RF (radio frequency) hardware, shipping systems, and warehouse automation equipment, it¬?s a paperless, wireless, Web-deployable solution that serves as the hub of a warehouse¬?s supply chain.
Available in three editions, 100, 200, and 500, Sage Accpac WMS 5.0 starts as low as $9,500 (USD) SRP for the 100 edition, including a two-user license. Clients can easily scale up to a higher edition, add more users, or supplement their edition with optional modules ‘?a la carte’ to build a warehouse management system that maps to their growing needs, with most optional modules priced at only $5,000 per module.
Designed for low volume warehouses, features such as UPS Shipping, RF functionality, Web Dispatch, and Order Management are included in the standard 100 Edition bundle of Sage Accpac WMS 5.0.

The 500 Edition is a solution designed for customers handling large volumes, with multiple sites and/or complex warehouse setups that may need extensive customization capabilities. It includes all of the modules in the 100 and 200 Editions, plus features such as Return Materials Authorization (RMA), Packaging, and Multi Company.
For those modules that aren¬?t standard/included with each Edition, they can be added ‘?a la carte’? at the client’?s choosing. Additional optional modules for all three Editions include Demand Forecasting I and II, and RFID (Demand Forecasting II requires Demand Forecasting I).
