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

With lower energy prices sparking domestic economic gains, coupled with solid manufacturing and industrial production activity, improving jobs numbers, and a GDP number that shows progress, there is, or there should be, much to be enthused about when it comes to the economy and the economic recovery, which has been raised and discussed and dissected from basically every angle possible, it seems. But that enthusiasm regarding the economy needs to be tempered, because big headline themes seldom tell the full story at all really.
