Salt Lake City, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/29/2017 -- WarehouseOS is helping non-Amazon e-commerce companies deliver in the same day. Order fulfillment requires accurate picking. Reducing the time it takes to get an order to a customer's home and replenish its stores is every company's desire, but while faster fulfillment and small order sizes make customers, and store managers happy, faster fulfillment comes at a cost, reported Russ Meller in Supply Chain 24/7.
WarehouseOS is committed to bringing important and interesting information to those in the material handling, warehousing, distribution, and manufacturing sectors. Tim Hoj of Warehouse Mobile Solutions, makers of WarehouseOS, shared, "From best practices to industry data, our blog will report on trend data, process improvement, and technology evaluations about picking, packing, shipping, and profitability. We are part of a lean process, offering improved throughput, fewer errors, and significant cost savings."
All of this customer urgency is putting pressure on retailers as well as industrial distributors to rev-up their cycle times for fast, faster, and fastest fulfillment times compared to competitors. While Amazon is in the news, this is not just an e-commerce arms race. Companies are moving faster to replenish stores too, in order to keep less inventory at each retail location and cut inventory across the entire network.
The results from these cutting-edge technologies are increased customer satisfaction, increased ability to supply products, and process transparency. Traditional picking methods are one of highest expenses when operating a warehouse. Fast-growing e-commerce companies need scalable solutions to grow as rapidly as the sales trajectory.

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.
