WarehouseOS Tablet-Based Picking Drives Down Labor Costs
WarehouseOS Tablet-Based Picking Devices Drives Down Labor Costs
By: Warehouse Mobile Solutions
According to Tim Hoj, "After receiving inventory, some warehouse operations must sort through boxes containing multiple SKUs (electronic parts, sporting goods, craft suppliers, and FMCG), separating SKUs by warehouse location and consolidating inventory prior to putting it away. Others must sort returned inventory for the same reason. Tablet-base picking is just as fast and accurate for reverse logistics."
While order picking methods vary as greatly as the distribution centers teams who use them, an order picking systems design is a key part of every warehouse solution. WarehouseOS (WOS) specializes in tablet-based picking, the most effective approach on the market today.
Tablet-based picking is superior to pick-to-light and pick-to-voice because tablet-based picking is faster, at a lower cost, and with less integration. Tablet-based picking has a simple visual interface, which is highly configurable, yielding a customizable and easily updated experience for the user. Regardless of SKU volume or product handling, solutions like WOS are designed and implemented as a comprehensive picking system to meet unique requirements with reliable, flexible, and intelligent solutions.
The RF gun, constant verifications, small keypads, and hard to read screens are quickly becoming yesterday's technology. Tablets are replacing the RF gun. WarehouseOS, a new tablet-based Warehouse Operations System brings warehouses into the future today. Warehouse management systems have been around for a long time with too many companies still using the RF gun to conduct inventory management, scan in new items, and pick orders. The RF gun solutions typically cost double what modern solutions offer. WarehouseOS and associated apps have been developed to make everything about the warehouse easier and better. Apps allow small or large companies to receive products, manage inventory, perform cycle counting, conduct single picks or do batch picking, verify items picked and pack them into boxes.
An easy to navigate user interface means warehouse personnel need almost no training before performing warehouse tasks. Receiving, put-away, picking, and packaging quickly become the easiest jobs on the floor. A team of experts in material handling equipment and solutions developed WarehouseOS to maximize the throughput of warehousing and distributing facilities. From small eCommerce, to high volume SKU facilities, from omni-channel companies to FMCG (fast moving consumer goods), WarehouseOS is equipped to handle everything. From small startups with simple needs to complex, large distribution centers, WarehouseOS is the tablet solution which enables manufacturers and distribution centers to be a step ahead of the competition.
