Real time data is key to the efficient operation of warehouse distribution. The immediate availability of information improves productivity in the warehouse. At the same time employee performance increases. With a computerized information flow directly in the workers hands, pick and pull accuracy dramatically improves.
This cycle of information is essential to warehouse management. As information flows quickly from management to workers on the floor where the physical inventory handling takes place, accurate information is the key to a successful operation.
The days of pencil and paper are gone. New technologies like bar code scanning and Radio Frequency Devices (RDID) allow warehouse operations across entire regions run smoothly. Workers can carry up-to-date inventory information with them at all times in hand held computers. The home office no longer has to wait days for inventories to be tallied from multiple locations. Inventory counts update in real time each time the worker scans a bar code. Shipping records are also able to be updated as soon as product is moved in the warehouse and put on a truck for delivery.
Companies find that putting a warehouse inventory management software system into place can greatly improve the bottom line. Savings in lost inventory and reduced man hours are just a couple of the financial benefits to computerizing your warehousing operations.
