Warehouse Management Basic Module Course

Warehouse Management Basic Module Course

The Warehouse Management (WM) Basic Module Course is a high-level, 101-style, in person training designed to provide students with an introductory understanding of the WM module and it's fundamental capabilities.  The curriculum will highlight the core functionality of all major processes contained within the WM module as well as its user interface and navigational basics. If you are considering incorporating DPAS into your business model and would benefit from learning how the application works in more detail; or perhaps you are in the process of implementing DPAS but require more information to inform your decisions on establishing internal structure or completing the requisite conversion spreadsheets; or maybe, as a new or current user of DPAS, you would like to attend an instructor-led course to supplement what is available via our eLearning platform--this course is for you!

 

All of our Basic Module Courses do include student access to our Sandbox Training Environment, so that all in attendance can benefit from the opportunity to "click around" in the application and practice the skills covered throughout the class.
