Enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is the cloud based application package that is targeted to modularise the different activities of an organization in a sequential flow. It includes finance, sales, operational activities, purchases, inventory and other business problems.

Today the motive behind to write this post is the one that we can understand the basic difference between WMS and ERP software package and what can be the issues behind the implementation problems of an ERP package. First try to understand the basic problems behind the implementation of ERP package. like –

lack of top management commitment and support.
lack of improper planning and proper budget
lack of training
work culture of the organization
failure of user acceptance
failure in ERP software implementation
Use of wrong ERP tool
increment in cycle time

So these were the basic problems which are the hidden causes of the failure of ERP implementation. So the implementing organization should try to formulate the problems and try to solve the problems in time. So now, we should try to understand the basic difference between the warehouse management software (WMS) and a basic ERP software package. First try to understand the basic definition of WMS.

A warehouse management system is the software which supports all kind of operational and functional activities of a data warehouse and distribution center. A WMS can also be the part of the ERP software package, but generally, it contains all kind of reassembled goods, raw material and industrial goods.

Difference between the ERP and WMS –

ERP is made to control and maximize the coordination between the departments of the organization wherever WMS specially is designed for the controlling the inventory and warehousing activities like – packing, shipping, picking and receiving.

Both WMS and ERP control the basic functional area and data related coverage so without them an organization would not be beneficial.
WMS is niche specific and ERP is a complete software package working at a vast level.
WMS can be designed and configured at the basic module of ERP.
How to choose a right software package –
The answer of this question is hidden in the following factors which can be both workable for ERP and WMS like –
A software must be designed and compiled with the long term needs of the organization.
The software package should be designed for both the data storage and packaging information.

It should determine the basic return on investment needs of the organization.
