Pick-to-Light is no longer symbolized by red and green flashing lights that indicate what an operator should pick. Warehouse managers hate one-trick-ponies and prefer solutions that can be deployed across a wide range of needs – not just a little blinking light on a shelf.
This is where Voodoo robotics brings something better to the table with a new wireless cloud-based picking technology!
What Makes Voodoo Robotics Different?
Pick-to-light was ready for a revolution. Big players have used light systems for decades, but putting them in place involved the operational disruption of running wires, moving shelves, software integration, and training. That kind of downtime can hurt and the technology was prohibitively expensive.
Voodoo Robotics created a wireless, cloud-based pick-to-light that is easy to install and integrate – without disrupting your order fulfillment operations. And it’s affordable!
Wiring a warehouse full of devices is a great way to drive everyone out of their minds. With a wireless PTL device and a Turbo, the device connects automatically and is up and running, ready to do any number of tasks.
Cloud technology is safe, reliable, secure and provides the following benefits:
- Reduced IT costs
- Automatic updates
Two AAA batteries are all that’s needed to power a PTL device for a year or more (depending on usage). Wireless devices can be attached almost anywhere and relocated with ease!
Five lines of illuminated text with a button that lights up in one of six colors, convey information better than the old blinking red or green light. The message on the device can be customized to include the picker’s name, and the items and quantity to be picked, barcodes, QR codes, arrows, or icons. Devices can also be attached to pick carts, pallet jacks – anywhere that the extra information can make a difference.
Pick-to-light systems increase pick-rates while reducing errors. The wrong item put away in the wrong bin, the wrong SKU pulled for an order, an error on a part picked for assembly are all costly mistakes. Pick-to-light reduces these types of errors and the costs involved to fix them.
