Supply Chain Execution Software Assessment and Selection

Selecting a WMS, LMS, TMS, or Voice vendor is an important decision for any distribution operation. Their software is a major cog in most supply chains. Should I use my ERP?

Program / Project Management

The need has been identified. The ROI has been justified. The project has been approved. Who’s going to manage it?

Organizations of all sizes struggle with professional program and project management. Most businesses simply add the project management duties to a current employee’s workload. Most of the time these individuals already have full-time responsibilities in their current role and typically posses little or no formal training in program or project management.

Waller & Associates has Certified Project Management Professionals (PMP) adept at developing and implementing large-scale distribution and logistics solutions by integrating IT and operational processes to achieve best-in-class results.
