Salt Lake City, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/29/2016 -- One of the biggest challenges faced by retailers during the holidays is a dramatic increase in order volume. For the period including Black Friday and Cyber Monday, companies can see those volumes increase by as much as 400 percent. To meet this demand, many businesses must bring in temporary warehouse workers and get them trained and working quickly. The tablet-based Inventory Management App, which runs on the Warehouse Mobile Solutions WarehouseOS, is helping companies meet this challenge. Warehouse Mobile Solutions CEO Tim Hoj said the easy-to-navigate user interface means warehouse personnel need almost no training before performing warehouse tasks such as receiving, putting away, picking and packaging.
The Inventory Management App offered by Warehouse Mobile Solutions is helping warehouses prepare for the busy holiday season. Warehouse Mobile Solutions was recently featured in Pymnts.com.
A temporary worker can be shown how to use the system in 10 minutes, and then they can go out and pick. They can be productive the first day they are on the site," Hoj said. "In the traditional model, that temporary worker might need to go through a day or two of training before they would be productive on the floor."
"When we started the business five years ago, a lot of people were saying an iPad didn't belong in the warehouse," Hoj said. "Today, touchscreen technology is seen in so many different environments. It's a pretty big paradigm shift, and the efficiencies are speaking for themselves. People are saving a lot of money processing this way."

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.
