How long does the implementation of ibcsTiger system take?

The implementation of the WMS system is a real revolution for every magazine. However, before the moment occurs when your company’s employees will be able to take full advantage of the possibilities of a modern Warehouse Management System, the implementation process should be carried out, for which IBSC Poland experts are responsible. One of the basic questions that are asked by people ordering our proprietary WMS is the question of how long it takes to implement the ibcsTiger system.

WMS implementation process depends on several factors. The most important of these is the size of the company where the implementation will take place. Of course, we are able to implement WMS ibcsTiger in any type of business, regardless of the size and level of logistics processes. However, it is the size of the company and the degree of complexity of processes in a particular warehouse that determine how long, the implementation will last, and after which time the warehouse employees will be able to fully use the power of ibcsTiger.

Each implementation process, regardless of the company in which it takes place, is divided into five main phases, the duration of which determines the overall duration of the WMS implementation process.

  1. The first phase of WMS implementation – analysis of the company’s requirements and needs: This stage of work is mainly defining implementation goals and estimating costs. This is the first of two planning stages. It allows you to precisely specify the requirements, and thus overall planning of the implementation budget of the ibcsTiger in the company ordering it
  2. Phase two of WMS implementation – pre-implementation analysis: At this stage of work, we are preparing an advanced system design, which includes, among others, identifying customer requirements regarding the operation of the warehouse. Thanks to this, it is possible to adjust the ibcsTiger system to the company’s needs even better.
  3. Phase three of WMS implementation – Implementation of additional interface modifications to the external system: At this stage, our experts responsible for implementing WMS ibcsTiger are preparing all additional components, which, as previous stages of preparation have shown, are the most important from the point of view of the end users of the system and the specifics of the company that will use it.
  4. The fourth phase of WMS implementation – proper implementation: The “main” phase of the WMS implementation process. It is at this stage that IBCS Poland experts perform a complicated, but rehearsed, process of the overall implementation of the ibcsTiger Warehouse Management System in the company.
  5. The fifth phase of WMS implementation – final works and commissioning: Starting the project in this phase is transferred to the support area and the final system acceptance report is being prepared.

How long does WMS implementation take?

The stages of work presented above make up the entire WMS ibcsTiger system implementation process. We are able to implement such a process within the shortest period of about three months. However, the size of the company, as well as the number and degree of complexity of processes in a particular warehouse have a significant impact on the date of completion of works. Our longest and most complex implementations lasted about half a year. However, these were operations carried out for the largest Polish companies (we remind you that WMS ibcsTiger has been implemented, among others, in companies such as T.G.BEWA, Hutchinson Żywiec, Dekorglass and DPD).

Therefore, the process of implementing ibcsTiger system can last from three months to half a year. Importantly, it is worth adding the period of trainings that should take place after implementation and which allow the newly introduced WMS system to be used to the fullest in order to improve warehouse operations. The duration of WMS implementation is, however, only the beginning of a great change in the warehouse, which is ensured by ibcsTiger – WMS, which will change the face of every form dealing with storage and logistics for years.
