Clients in the News: Companies continuously strive to maximize warehouse inventory throughput, increase productivity and improve accuracy. However, most companies are either uncertain of how to obtain real-time data capture—a critical element in the achievement of these goals—or are using the right pieces of technology to gather real-time data but are unintentionally not utilizing it to drive true enterprise growth. By not making use of all of the real-time data that circulates within the warehouse, companies become unable to properly manage inventory—such as knowing the location, quantity, temperature, etc.—which oftentimes results in a loss of time and money.
To help mitigate these challenges in the supply chain, companies can implement barcode data collection systems throughout the warehouse. Barcode data collection systems allow warehouse workers to scan barcodes on items, packages or pallets into handheld devices instead of manually keying that data into PCs.
