A free WMS versus a more robust, subscription-based WMS
Warehouse requirements are relatively basic for many Dynamics 365 Business Central Cloud users. In these cases, integrating an advanced WMS isn’t necessary when WMS Express provides you with all the needed functionality for free.
For those with more complex requirements, Warehouse Insight is a good option. Warehouse Insight is a subscription-based WMS app that does everything WMS Express can with added functionality. Unless you already know you have advanced WMS requirements, a great place to start is with the free WMS Express app.
Is WMS Express really free? Where is the catch?
Yes. The WMS Express app from Insight Works is really free – free forever. You don’t even need to license the app by providing personal information. There are no annoying pop-up ads or features that require you to upgrade. The only limitation is there can only be a maximum of five devices running WMS Express per company. WMS Express expansion packs are available for purchase for those who need more devices, or users can upgrade to the subscription-based Warehouse Insight app.
What sort of mobile devices can be used?
Those looking to start using mobile devices ask the most common question: “Can I use a smartphone?”. Technically you can use a smartphone running Android. To scan barcodes, you would then use the camera on the device. However, smartphones are not the ideal device and are typically not recommended. Find out why here: How to Choose a Mobile Computer to use with Business Central.
