SmartTurn is the leading On-Demand Inventory and Warehouse Management System (WMS) provider.

Based on the concept of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), SmartTurn™ Inventory and Warehouse Management System and the SmartTurn Inventory Grid™ are the first true on-demand warehouse management systems to provide enterprise-class functionality at a fraction of the cost of traditional license and install soft-ware.
Widely recognized as the leader in on-demand WMS, SmartTurn has hundreds of customers including wholesale distributors, major food and electronics distributors, and leading logistics providers among others.

Real-time Visibility & ROI in Weeks
With broad functionality and pre-integrated with NetSuite, SmartTurn delivers inventory and warehouse management processes through one centralized system providing companies with real-time visibility and control into the movement of inventory across multiple warehouses or within a single location.
SmartTurn and NetSuite address secure information sharing, collaboration and Web 2.0 functionality driven by the Internet and supply chain best practices. With a pay-as-you-go model providing unlimited users and transactions per facility, SmartTurn not only save a typical warehouse thousands of dollars per month but also produces a positive ROI in as little as 30 days.
Measuring Value in Today’s Supply chain
Supply chain and logistics executives are interested in two simple things. First, they want to ensure that the product gets to the customer in a way that meets the customer’s expectations. Second, they want to do this at the lowest possible cost to the operations they manage. These goals are why selecting SmartTurn and NetSuite are so important for your business. From creating temporary supply chains to rapidly adapting to dynamic market forces (e.g. fluctuating fuel prices, consumer demand), companies need the flexibility and scalability found in SmartTurn for effective, managed long-term planning.
Today, supply chain management is uniquely difficult because its complexity extends beyond a company’s walls. Issues such as globalization, internal and external business practices, and customer requirements come into play. We’ve reached a tipping point where technology vendors need to address both the need for an agile and dynamic solution and the age old problem of inventory visibility and collaboration.
The WMS competitive advantage
Faster inventory turns - reduce lead times by limiting inventory movement and improving the accuracy of inventory records
More efficient use of available warehouse space - lower inventory carrying costs by increasing available warehouse space by more efficiently locating items in relation to receiving, assembly, packing, and shipping points.
Reduction in inventory paperwork - significantly reduce paperwork traditionally associated with warehouse operations (e.g. receiving reports, pick tickets, packing lists), as well as ensure timely and accurate flow of inventory and information.
Improved cycle counting - capture relevant data (e.g., frequency of movement, specific locations, etc.) to systematically schedule personnel for cycle counts. Such cycle counts not only can improve the accuracy of inventory records for planning purposes, but also can eliminate or reduce the need for complete, costly physical inventories.
Reduced dependency on warehouse personnel - facilitate standardization of inventory movements, picking methods, and inventory locations. This standardization helps to minimize reliance on informal practices, resulting in reduced training costs and lower error rates.
Enhanced customer service - streamline processes from order to delivery, accurately determine product availability and realistic delivery dates, and reduce returns as a result of increased shipment accuracy.
Improved labor productivity - maximize efficiency while reducing labor costs by incorporating several inventory picks into one or by cross docking, reducing warehouse handling.
The SmartTurn-netSuite advantage
