WMS made my job easier with the information that can be stored and has cut down the amount of manual processes.
I like that it stores so much information that it is easy to research shipments, find tracking numbers and I can tell customers exactly what is on each master load that we shipped. I like that I can add notes to the customer within WMS that transfers to the BOL for the carrier. The functionality of the route/stop is great for sorting orders. I like that we can change the sort lane at any time we want to fit our needs on the dock.
At a glance I can see how freight we have staged out on the dock and what orders are complete and ready to ship. The WMS system makes my job easier. It stores all of the hazardous information for each item and adds the information to the BOL and the IMO Declaration for shipping to Hawaii and Alaska.
One of the things I like least is that I cannot edit the Master BOL. To print an IMO Declaration for a Child BOL it takes quite a long time. I would like it to be faster. There is not a whole lot that I do not like about WMS.

Latitude is ridiculously compatible with almost every process we have in our warehouse. The flexibility of the system is unparalleled, and the effort that the support team gives is second-to-none. The Latitude database itself is incredibly well designed and internally consistent. It's ease of use lends itself to customization, whether through ad hoc reports or through Crystal Reports designs. Their alerting system has been an incredible gift in helping to error proof our systems. Pathguide offers as much help as you require with its sophisticated concepts and reporting.
The "help" menus have historically been less than helpful... sometimes we need to "stumble" across functionality, rather than being clued in to its existence. The system's unbridled flexibility also means somethings can frustratingly vague. But these are minor complaints.

Very accurate inventory for a reasonable priced software package.
This product was so easy to set up and use. Fully featured WMS at a reasonable price. Did everything we needed. Very adaptable. Works with many ERP platforms (we were the first to use on Epicor Eagle platform and they did a wonderful job of integrating). Smaller company and much easier to work with than a larger company like Epicor. Software made picking simple and had all the function needed to keep inventory accurate.
I do not have many problems with this software. Most the problems that arose were the problems with the ERP system interfacing with the Latitude system. Occasionally we would need changes to the process we wanted to do but would have to wait for the Epicor people to make changes on their end. Pathguide could do rapidly.
I like how efficient and optimized the code is. Data is processed instantaneously with no processing bottlenecks. The support staff is always ready and willing to work through any issue we have. Several modules have been created and/or modified to suit our needs. They are constantly releasing updates, so new features and improvements are continuously being made.
With so many options and so much freedom to modify any setting, it can be overwhelming to browse through the menus. Especially as a sysadmin using the management console, it can make you feel like an ant working on a time machine when you encounter so many options and settings that you can tweak. Luckily there is always support personnel to help us navigate the jungle if we need help.

Increased warehouse efficiency; improved inventory/shipment accuracy; higher visibility of processes and employee performance; completely traceable work flow that increases transparency for employees, management and auditors.
This software is easy to learn and use, from our entry level warehouse associates to our office power users- we've had minimal learning curves. Any issues we've ever run into, either a fluke in the WMS or due to an interface with another program, the PathGuide team is always quick to respond and get us back on track.
There is no table map available; that would be helpful when utilizing the Management Console to see in what data table a column on the screen is located in order to quickly perform an update or import.
