Today's warehouse management now has dramatically improved visibility across the entire supply chain to create a much more efficient warehouse system. Companies using "pull"-based automated warehouse management can hold just the right level of inventory virtually anywhere in the supply chain to smooth out inventory flow, reduce costs, and base decisions on actual demand data, not inaccurate demand forecasts.
With this as well if your warehouse management system uses enterprise mobility then your warehouse operations will be able to achieve higher levels of productivity and profitability. What is enterprise mobility? Enterprise mobility, in simple terms, is a technology direction where employees use mobile devices and cloud services to perform business tasks at any time and anywhere.
One of the biggest benefits enterprise mobility has in the warehouse environment is visibility and trace ability of the supply chain. Enterprise Mobility facilitates real-time data collection and visibility of inventory information, which can largely eliminate inventory errors.
Using a WMS with enterprise mobility is going to give your warehouse workers more immediate access to data and tasks. This is going to reduce execution times and increase their productivity.
With this, you will need to ensure your enterprise mobility devices you implement in the warehouse are robust rugged devices. The rugged devices need to have an IP rating of 65, be splash and dust proof and withstand the daily rigours of being in a warehouse environment.
