While most e-commerce retailers are looking for ways to attract seasonal talent, many are now choosing to optimize fulfillment centers by using warehouse management software (WMS) instead. However, not all WMS solutions provide waveless picking optimization and labor performance tracking. Implementing the correct WMS solution can take optimization a step further and provide labor efficiency gains. Learn about challenges that accompany omnichannel retailers, and how one leading e-commerce retailer was able to retrofit an existing distribution center to overcome labor shortages.
