Overall, Fishbowl Manufacturing has saved our company money. Our inventory is more accurate. Previously we used a home grown, Access data base. We have decreased our cost in the inventory/purchasing area by about 15%.
Like I previously mentioned, this software fits our needs right now because it allows us to control inventory and remove items when needed from our participating retailer's websites. The price is reasonable. Our traffic and shipping teams have also used this software to create fewer touch points in …
Oracle Warehouse Management Cloud is better to use for inventory management or warehouse management only. It does not give you all the features that Oracle offers in its Order Management System. So before opting for an ERP for your organization, I would say to take expert advice.
Wasp aids in life cycle management of devices and peripherals not only from a support standpoint but allows streamlining with surplus processes.

It is more suited for a NON manufacturing site. It may not be the best with integrating with Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs).
Once these systems get installed, it becomes hard to justify switching out for different provider. For facilities that are using RedPrairie, it's unlikely we would change in the near future and should be renewing.
The Warehouse Management System (WMS) system was very good. I just would be very careful in negotiating T&C's on statement of work (SOW) and contracts, especially focus on getting performance/deadline penalties.
