Advantages of Voodoo Robotics Pick-to-Light

A Long overdue overhaul to Pick-to Light

Voodoo Robotics has leveraged the Internet-of-Things (IoT) and invented the next-generation of light-directed Picking technology.

Now, pick-to-light is:

  • Wireless. AAA batteries can last a year or more, depending on usage
  • Cloud-based. A simple URL causes devices to light up
  • Scalable. Purchase additional devices or redeploy them as your needs change.

Improve productivity by picking more inventory, in less time, and with fewer errors.

Five Advantages of Voodoo Robotics Pick-to-Light

Low Resource

Pick-to-light systems have the reputation of being resource intensive, not only in terms of the initial capital outlay but also in terms of the disruption of installation and the downtime involved in wiring power to the racks. Additionally, integration with existing software and barcoding gear made deploying pick to light a turn-off for smaller businesses who can’t afford the loss of product-moving hours. However, with Voodoo Robotics PTL devices, there’s no wiring and nothing more complicated than some AA batteries and a WiFi connection.

Simple Integration

A simple web URL causes a pick light to display two lines of custom text.  It’s so simple that you can even use it with Microsoft Excel or easily integrate with your WMS or ERP system.  We even provide code samples to get you started!

Eliminate Pain Points

Pain points are known problems without an adequate solution.  For example:

  • “There’s a problem with [SKU#1] being subbed with [SKU#2].
  • My customer is complaining about ____.”
  • “I can’t pick any faster because there are too many similar products.”

Light directed picking increases pick rates and accuracy while reducing mispicks (and the corresponding returns), thereby increasing customer satisfaction and alleviating some of the most common yet pervasive pain points.

Scalable and Relocatable

Add more lights in anticipation of the holiday rush. When sales level off, you can quickly and easily redeploy them in another location of the same warehouse or even a different warehouse.  Put lights in a “hot zone” to quickly pick the top-selling products or put them on your existing picking carts so you can batch pick orders efficiently and accurately.  Managers who track KPIs will see the change in accuracy, speed, and orders filled per day.

Affordable and High Impact

Pick-to-light no longer requires a thorough ROI analysis followed by a large capital expense.

With as few as ten devices, possibly for that hot zone, even a very small operation can deploy pick to light and see the impact that faster picking and reduced errors have on the bottom line.

Smart Money

Money invested in improving order fulfillment operations should have a greater net positive effect than the initial expense.  Nothing can damage a balance sheet like unhappy customers, out-of-stocks, mispicked orders or dead inventory.  Get control of your inventory with a light-directed picking solution that increases picking accuracy while reducing errors. The money spent can quickly translate into long-term growth and profitability.
