In a traditional warehouse setting it is commonplace to see paper picking sheets driving a labour-intensive order process. This requires supervisors to spend large amounts of time creating and sorting paperwork before issuing to warehouse operatives. In a fast-moving fulfilment environment this soon becomes a significant drain on resources, especially when managing the expectations of multiple clients.
At a time where customer expectations and margin pressures are ever-increasing, the efficiencies of a paperless fulfilment process can help to unlock significant cost savings.
Combining employee mobility with handheld devices, barcode scanning and paperless order fulfilment, we’ve increased productivity by over 30% (measured by picks per employee, per day) and reduced errors to less than 0.05%. Furthermore, we’re able to scale capacity almost instantly by redeploying or engaging new staff, safe in the knowledge that our picking and dispatch process is system-controlled and subject to rigorous barcode validation at the point of activity.
If you’re looking to modernise your own warehouse operations, we licence our fulfilment technology to fast-growing online retailers. Our consulting team is on hand to demonstrate the benefits at our fulfilment centres and help you to scope out your requirements.
