For instance, using one starter kit made of ten PTL devices, one turbo (connects the devices to the cloud), and a SKU-Keeper account is enough to get started. Software integration is a breeze, and the system can even work with a simple Excel or Google spreadsheet. Just a few of the things you can do to make your pickers’ lives easier are:
- Place the device on a pick cart and then light it up with SKU and quantity,
- Place the device on a shelf or bin and light it up so that your picker can clearly see that they are supposed to pick that specific item.
- Display special instructions to the packer or the shipper on the cart.
Warehouse managers can also create special picking zones for clearance items, or a “hot zone” for bestsellers to improve speed and accuracy when picking popular items. Conversely, when it comes to restocking shelves with received goods, the devices can tell the receiving warehouse crew where the goods need to go.
Getting input from management and staff is important when brainstorming solutions to time-draining jobs. Control your inventory and create a more efficient workforce – just with a little starter kit.
