Wireless Warehouse: Increasing Productivity to Lower Costs

September 20, 2018

 

How much of your product pricing is a result of warehouse costs? From storage to labor, these cost impactors eat away at profitability. The good news is that many of these costs can be reduced using wireless warehouse technology:

  • automating data collection via scanning
  • reducing data entry errors through barcodes
  • raising employee productivity through wave picking
  • setting product locations based on sales frequency

Wireless warehouse tools streamline processes and increase user productivity when picking, receiving, cycle counting, etc. Providing precise control through the use of barcode-scanning technology, wireless warehouse also greatly decreases data entry errors across receiving, picking, and shipping.

Though these represent just a few examples of potential productivity gains and resulting cost savings, the strength of wireless warehouse increases when paired with an ERP system. Utilizing the scanned data, an ERP distribution solution is capable of providing real-time access to on-hand inventory levels and developing forecasting based on historical trends.
