Plano, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/15/2017 -- SKU-Keeper by Voodoo Robotics is offering inventory management with basic, yet important, traceability functionality. The Texas-based Voodoo Robotics was recently profiled in AutomationMedia.com magazine.
Trevor Blumenau CEO of Voodoo Robotics brought the product to market because there was a need for an affordable solution, a system that keeps track of received inventory and movements through a warehouse or manufacturing operation.
What is tracked by SKU-Keeper are 'merge points' and 'diverge points' where inventory comes together or is separated. Similar inventory is tracked together after a merge, inventory that is separated is tracked separately after a diverge.
Even the smallest process manufacturers are constantly seeking solutions which will ease the complexity of compliance reporting. Providing traceability allows process manufacturers to follow an item from incoming raw material through multiple bins to the finished good sent to a specific customer. Lot tracking can be used for both purchased items and manufactured items. It is critical that process manufacturers can choose from several lot issue methods and create custom serial and lot numbers for any item.

Voodoo offers a unique lease-based Pick-to-Light system designed to modernize warehouse operations by leveraging the latest IIoT (Industrial Internet-of-Things) technology. The picking hardware integrates effortlessly with existing WMS (Warehouse Management Systems), or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems allowing distribution centers, warehouses, and 3PLs (third party logistics) to scale operations, only paying for the lights needed each month. This revolutionary approach to leasing Pick-to-Light devices on a month-to-month, pay-as-you-go basis avoids long-term commitments and costly up-front fees.
A companion product, SKU-Keeper Inventory Management, is designed for warehouses that do not have an existing WMS or ERP system. Emphasizing simplicity and easy-of-use, the cloud software is also leased on a low-cost, low-risk month-to-month basis.
The company also provides smart, ROI (return-on-investment) driven Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) with an innovative 3D user interface, compatible with Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari. The robotic systems are designed, simulated and run, all using a Warehouse Descriptive Language (WDL), a concept invented by the company.
