This can help reduce errors and improve worker efficiency, leading to significant time savings and improved productivity.
Benefits of Handling unit Management:
- Management of SLCs, pallets, boxes.
- UI for live view and customized alerting
- Pairing of HUs with products
- Tracking of HUs through production
- Sensor integration (RFID, Buttons, Smart labels)
Digital Worker Guidance
Our solution is designed to improve your picking efficiency and reduce waste in your manufacturing processes. With our system in place, you’ll be able to reduce false picks and improve your overall picking speed, leading to significant time savings and improved productivity.
One of the key features of our digital worker guidance solution is the use of pick by light guidance. This allows workers to quickly and easily identify the correct items to pick, reducing the risk of errors and false picks. This can lead to significant time savings, as workers no longer have to spend time double-checking their picks or correcting mistakes.
You can expect a reduction of 3–5 minutes per manufacturing order, allowing you to complete orders faster and more efficiently than ever before. This can help you stay competitive in a rapidly changing business environment and ensure that you are delivering value to your customers.
Track and Trace
Our solution utilizes advanced technology, including identification hardware of our partners, to provide real-time tracking and monitoring of your assets. With our system in place, you’ll be able to quickly and easily locate your assets, monitor their usage and condition, and make informed decisions about how to allocate them for maximum efficiency.
Our partners tracking device provides accurate and reliable tracking data in even the most challenging environments. Whether your assets are located in a warehouse, on a manufacturing floor, or out in the field, our solution can provide real-time tracking and monitoring to ensure that you always know where your assets are and how they are being used.
