Despite the widespread availability of warehouse management hardware, not many candidates have experience with it. There’s a learning curve when it comes to working with pick-by-light systems, RF scanners, wrist scanners, tablets, and so on. Designate a “training buddy” who has been using the tools successfully, and assign them to the same picking area. Doing is the fastest method for learning when it comes to picking technology, with pick-by-light or put-by-light guiding the picker to the SKU, then scanning the item from the bin to the pick cart.
The difference is especially obvious when using Voodoo Robotics Cloud Display Devices, a unique new type of wireless, wifi-enabled pick-to-light. For example, it can light up in one of six colors, showing the picker’s name and the order number, along with an arrow pointing to the location of the pick. Devices are wireless and run on two AAA batteries. They can be mounted just about anywhere using magnets, a screwdriver, or even double-sided tape. Picking is faster and more accurate, and warehouse staff has time to fill more orders. Call today and get a live demo and see what this unique and budget-friendly technology can do for your operation.
