The Benefits of Wireless Mobility in Your Warehouse or DC


January 10, 2011

Without mobility, business processes are tied to a desk and paper is used to distribute information. A paper driven process requires data to be handled multiple times leading to inefficient use of time and the greater chances of costly errors.

The growth of wireless technology has changed the nature of how electronic equipment can be used. Procedures that were originally built around a network or electrical connectivity at a fixed location can be modified because the computing, printing, testing, weighing and scanning technology can now be brought to where the work is taking place. Operators & Management now have continual access to real-time information ANYWHERE in a facility as tools needed to automate business processes are always at hand.

Where can mobility be applied?

  • Receiving

  • Cross Docking

  • Put Away

  • Returns

  • Picking

  • Shipping

Typical Mobility
Wireless mobility typically refers to handheld or belt worn portable printers, scanners or headsets. However, these units can be limited in size, capacity and functionality.
