In this article I want to present you a price comparison between WebWMS and other WMS solution. I will compare all the price between the solution for you because I want to have a clear view of all operation and cost involved into this process. I help companies to implement more WMS solution in the past and I realize that some of the clients do not know all the steps and all the points where is necessary to focus in this implementation process.
I hope after you read this articles to have a clear vies of the operations and the costs associate with every operations and with all process. We made the calculation for a medium warehouse with 10 people and all the costs are in USD.
Also, this article it is useful because it shows you where is the point where it is necessary to negotiate and have more attention than normal because it is a “delicate” situation in that points.

- We must take in consideration also the communication montly costs
What is more important than the money, for my point of view it is the implementation process and this step can made the difference between a success project or unsuccessful project. For us WMS solution it is a tool to help company to optimize their warehouse operations, this is one of the reason that we offer free this solution, because we are logistic consultants not software reseller. We use WMS like an optimization tools.
For sure the price it is an advantage of WebWMS but another advantage is that you can test the solution before you buy it so you will know from the beginning what you buy and if the solution fits your expectation or not. You can do real life test of the WebWMS any time that you want because full standard solution is here: http://logistic-specialist.ro/webwms .
