Clients in the News: Warehouse workflows can get complicated. Whether you’re manufacturing and distributing food, pharmaceuticals or other products, there are complex transactions and regulations that must be followed.
There are various factors that can affect each business’s workflow in the warehouse, many of which depend upon specific company and customer requirements. For example, some foods and pharmaceuticals may have to be stored for a certain amount of time before they can be sold to the customer, as regulated by the FDA, while other products may need to be stored in a climate-controlled environment such as a cooler or freezer.
Unlike many other fields of work, warehouse workflows are rarely a straight line. Instead, they are complicated feedback loops that are affected by customer orders, resource availability and current inventory levels. Managing workflows can become cumbersome, time consuming and require a lot additional labor. However, by implementing the right technology to automate, businesses can often optimize many of these warehouse workflows—saving time and streamlining operations.
