Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler Sees Warehouses Drop the RF Gun in Favor of Tablets
Oakland Park, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/09/2016 -- Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler recently discussed the move many industrial leaders are making toward tablet technology for warehouse management. The article, titled, "Warehouses Move to Tablet Technology," was featured in AutomationMedia.com.
According to Cutler, "When it comes to productivity in the warehouse, too often plant managers and distribution center managers confuse how software and scanners impact the time it takes to fulfill customer orders. Having employees tethered to cumbersome hand-held terminals while trying to key in information on a small, hard-to-read screen prevents maximized picking rates and optimal order accuracy."
Companies, such as Warehouse Mobile Solutions, makers of WarehouseOS, are making a strong movement to tablets as the preferred mechanism in materials handling.
New solutions are moving away from the RF guns and are demonstrating double picking rates after only 10 minutes of training with enclosures mounted to mobile picking carts. The company recently completed the installation of its Tablet Directed, Barcode/Order Fulfillment Solution, at Hot Shots Distributing located in Charlotte, North Carolina. For nearly two decades the company has been supplying the fiery food industry with over 1,400 fiery products. Utilizing the latest version of WarehouseOS, Version 2.0, fully integrated with Hot Shots ERP system, order fulfillment, and inventory management are now a paperless process.
