Wholesale Sports Retailer Improves Order Fulfillment with Tablet Directed WarehouseOS
Salt Lake City, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/10/2016 -- Warehouse Mobile Solutions, the leader in logistics solutions, implemented its state-of-the-art tablet directed, barcode & order fulfillment solution, WarehouseOS, at Wholesale Sports Outdoor Outfitters. To better serve its expanding base of internet customers and ensure rapid order fulfillment, Wholesale Sports modernized its distribution center designed by Warehouse Mobile Solutions. This re-designed facility enables Wholesale Sports to support its rapidly expanding internet customer base serving Canadian outdoor enthusiasts.
WarehouseOS order fulfillment system is fully integrated with Wholesale Sports' host ERP system, providing the capability to simply receive orders from the host system to initiate the picking process. Immediately after a customer has completed an online order it will be passed to the fulfillment center, picked by an operator, packaged and ready for delivery, allowing customers to be out in the field enjoying their new outdoor gear by the weekend.
WarehouseOS system at Wholesale Sports incorporated 3 tablets mounted in innovative stainless steel enclosures utilizing a quick disconnect system and 4 mobile picking carts each equipped with a swivel bracket designed to accept the tablet enclosures. This unique design allows operators to store and pick products without the use of paper or cumbersome hand help mobile terminals. Operators simply scan items and locations as directed by the tablet computer, mounted to picking carts in a lockable stainless steel enclosure. The tablet computers are controlled wirelessly by a system manager, "Tablet Director," which release orders, schedules operators activities, and tracks in-process orders throughout the entire order fulfillment process.

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 table solution which enables manufacturers and distribution centers to be a step ahead of the competition.
