The versatility of mobility solutions means that this technology is not just constrained to outside the four walls. The warehousing and manufacturing can also benefit from deploying mobility solutions within their four walls.

Warehousing and manufacturing are very dynamic environments where minute by minute goods and materials are constantly moving in and out of the business area, from raw materials awaiting assembly or processing into final goods to finished goods waiting for delivery to distributors, retailers or end users. The failure of this operation running smoothly results in longer cycle times, errors and higher labour costs which translates into a higher cost of doing business.

Mobility solutions can be employed in a variety of facets found in Warehousing and manufacturing environments. The following illustrates how such a deployment would be an advantage for this industry. 

  • Remove the need for a warehouse picker to keep returning to a desktop computer to print paper forms before picking the next order.
  • Replace paper based forms with electronic forms for:
    • Booking in stock.
    • Replenishment of stock.
    • Picking.
    • Quality control.
    • Packing.
  • Send picking lists directly to the worker regardless of their location.
  • Scan barcodes to capture data quickly, correctly and efficiently to update central databases for tracking goods and materials.
  • Insure stock is located and placed in the correct shelves by RFID tagging.
  • Real time data capture on movement and inventory always available.
