The Need for a Mobile Warehouse Management
Solution to Boost Productivity
In comparison to that, earlier version of the Warehouse App supported mobile devices through the Warehouse Mobile Device Portal (WMDP). This had to be installed on an on-premise warehouse server. Warehouse errands were then performed utilizing a handheld gadget that needed access to the locally hosted website. Moreover, this locally hosted website required an internet browser that was supportive of HTML 4 protocol (Hyper Text Markup Language) which is now outdated, and the Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) to display contents on your gadget screen. Since the look and feel of the Warehouse App were static, the mobile resolution had to be satisfactory.
