3 good reasons why warehouse management apps rock your warehouse
What exactly does digital warehouse management actually do for us?
First and foremost, it manages every aspect of a warehouse.
This includes incoming goods, the recording and storage of inventories, the set-up of the warehouse, as well as the
picking and packing through to goods out.
This is the declared goal of digital warehouse management: it saves time and money and makes you a superstar in your warehouse.
But how exactly is it possible for apps to solve physical and logistical problems? In the following, we look at the three main reasons where the Warehouse Star unleashes all of its superpower.
1. Red carpet inventory security
One of the biggest pitfalls of an analog managed warehouse is inventory management. Management based on Excel tables is prone to errors and leads to stock shortages in the warehouse. It costs time and energy and is simply too expensive! With modern apps, you not only have your stocks in view at all times, they offer you much more.
The automatic identification
- classic via hand scanner
- mobile via smartphone
- innovative via wearables
make recording stocks child's play and save time-consuming counting. Stocks can be clients, managed in batches, and tracked seamlessly in the warehouse.
2. Picking optimally and safely instead of just picking!
Every customer and every company has different requirements for picking.
Merchandise management systems and e-commerce systems remain mostly one-dimensional and are limited to the processing of pick lists.
Apps specialized in warehouse operations cover a significantly higher range of functions. Picking runs are dynamically compiled depending on the order volume, processed in one or more stages, and optimally in multi-order mode.
Inventory managed with barcodes enables an error rate of almost 0. For our customers, mispicks and deliveries for our customers are a thing of the past. This is not only a cost saving, but also contributes enormously to customer loyalty.
3. Optimal storage strategies
With apps for warehouse navigation, for example in combination with data glasses, you can optimize the routes in the warehouse – with warehouse sizes between 20,000 sqm - 60,000 sqm, warehouse employees accumulate many kilometers of walking distance every day, which must be minimized.
Even in smaller warehouses, it is important to avoid any unnecessary handling and to observe storage space restrictions. Warehouse strategies for storage location determination, order formation and stock reservation are important prerequisites for a smooth process in the warehouse. The storage strategies can be configured specifically for your application.
These three functions make your work in the warehouse much easier. However, you need to take your employees with you on this tour. They must be ready to learn the system and use all its features.
The introduction of Warehouse Management Apps means a great responsibility for you as a customer. Implementation does not mean docking it onto the existing process, but rethinking and questioning existing processes. Digital processes close gaps and connect all points of your warehouse operations with each other.
Consider the introductory phase as an opportunity to optimize your processes in the warehouse as a whole. This not only saves resources, but also improves the overall customer experience.
At the end of this journey, you and your team will be on stage rocking your warehouse!
