Warehousing and Distribution
An efficient warehouse and distribution team is vital for customer satisfaction; customers need to know that they are going to be receiving the right products at the right location at the right time. If companies fail on their delivery promise customers may go elsewhere for their needs. Mobile computer technology can help companies improve their efficiency by instructing staff of the exact location where stock is located, which order the stock is fulfilling, and where the order is to be shipped.
From the time goods are received at the warehouse door, mobile computers instruct staff of correct put-away locations, providing companies with accurate stock levels and locations, and real-time availability. Interruptions ranging from receiving boxes which are damaged through to mislabelled shelves need not be a headache - using a mobile computer employees can alert the appropriate department of any issue and immediately continue with the task at hand.
Accurate stock levels are imperative when dealing with inventory – ageing and inaccuracy leads to increased costs and major write-offs. Addressing this issue will not only save the company valuable dollars, but also enables streamlining of the ordering processes, ensuring purchasing can confidently order to specific requirements.
Where mobile computers are attached to other equipment such as forklifts or trucks, the technology can be used to maintain service and maintenance records for the individual vehicle. With the ability to change a vehicle mounted computer from one vehicle to another in a matter of seconds (using only one hand) productivity will no longer suffer during vehicle maintenance - the mobile computer and associated employee can continue to work.
Companies can optimise the use of their assets by having all the information required available to them in real time. Managers can also see which mobile computers are in use, which are available and where they are located.
