viastore systems New eBook Addresses Multiple Locations Impact on Automation


Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2016 -- viastore Systems recently released a new eBook titled, "15 Myths About Warehouse Automation, Debunked." The eBook is a compilation of the 15 most common myths about warehouse automation, debunked with facts. The fourteenth myth is: The company's' facilities are different, so they cannot use one automation solution for all of them. The fact is there is no "one-size-fits-all" automation solution, and rarely will the installation that optimizes one location duplicate those exact results at another.

That's because different facilities in different geographic locations—even those handling identical items—will always be subject to local variables, such as cost and availability of labor and land, regional demands for products, shipping carrier cutoff time per geographic zone, and more. While both facilities might deploy the same system, to maximize the benefits of automation, the configuration of each system will likely vary to meet the unique needs of the specific facility.
