Ruggedized Hardware

The software solution you install will only be as effective as the hardware used by your employees on the floor. The typical shopping list includes the following items.

Printers
If you are labeling at receiving, you will appreciate the efficiency of a fast, rugged mobile printer which:

  • Reduces labeling time
  • Increases accuracy

Scanners
You want to ensure accurate tracking of the product whether it is going into storage or being cross docked for shipment elsewhere. A handheld scanner is the most efficient device for making sure there is accessible, real time information on the location of a single item or a pallet. Any time the product is moved around the warehouse, the information is scanned and updated in the system.There is a wide range of reliable mobile scanners from handheld or hands free to a scanner incorporated into a mobile computer. You can choose the scanning distance and light or sound alerts that work for your particular warehouse environment.

How to Choose the Right Barcode Scanner for Industrial Applications

Computers
Mobile computers are the most efficient devices, often incorporating a scanner to use for tracking inventory. The computer also hosts the software that captures all the data and can produce customized reports to use for production control, allocating resources and performance management.

System Benefits

You can actually measure the results of using WMS technology for your inventory control:

  • Increased accuracy in inventory count
  • Increased productivity as employees can find items faster
  • Increased accuracy in picking and packing orders
  • Elimination of shipping errors
  • Reduced capital and operating costs

Our Account Specialists can also discuss with you the more strategic benefits of a WMS solution. For example, management will have accurate, real time, integrated data to make decisions about:

  • Optimized storage configurations
  • More efficient allocation of resources
  • Budgets, both capital and operating
  • Performance management
  • Expansion plans

Our specialists can work with you to make sure the WMS reports are customized to retrieve whatever information you need to run your particular warehouse operation as efficiently and cost effectively as possible.

Installations

Most WMS solutions can be installed either on your own servers or as a web-based, Software as a Service (SaaS) solution. Although there are definite advantages to SaaS, especially if you operate in more than one location and need information flow for workers in the field, a locally installed system running on an MS Windows platform is more than adequate for some businesses. We can work with you to determine which system is the ideal solution for your unique needs.
