Welcome to wmsCONNECTOR, a quarterly newsletter for the Exeter WMS user community. Its purpose is to present information and tips that will provoke thought, discussion, and help advance your warehouse operations. Content will be driven by feedback, so please answer surveys and email me with comments, tips, desired subjects, or questions. Sharing our collective intelligence (or “connecting”) will help us better cope with change – an ever-accelerating part of our lives.
