Why You Should Choose WLAN for Your Warehouses, Part 2 of 3

January 8, 2016

In our last blog Part 1, we spoke about a few of the efficiencies WLAN could bring to your warehouse. Let’s dive into a few more advantages of WLAN.

Inventory Management

All companies must periodically perform the task of inventorying the items that ‘live’ in their warehouses, store shelves, libraries, equipment rooms, etc. Wireless bar code scanners can bring significant time savings and improved accuracy to these endeavors. For example, if you were inventorying hundreds of items in a large department store, using paper and a clipboard would be extremely inaccurate and inefficient.

With such an old-school way of working, the clerk would need to read the stock or part number of each item and mark the presence of this item on his/her clipboard. Can you imagine how many errors he would make? Many companies have realized 200-300 percent time savings when they’ve switched from manual-based paper systems to wireless bar code-based systems to complete their inventory tasks.

Utilizing a wireless network instead, the same clerk could scan the item’s label or bar code to record the number of items present. This way to inventory items is much easier to perform and all but eliminates human error. It also allows for the quick creation of inventory reports to show the number of items and uncover any discrepancies.

Order Fulfillment

Before he ever ships items from the warehouse to the customer, a warehouse clerk must locate and physically collect that item—a process called picking.

Using the power of WLAN for picking enhances both accuracy and efficiency of the operation—benefits which are evident because a wireless handheld data collector can provide the clerk with instructions and lead him to the item’s correct location. It also allows the clerk to account for the physical picking of the item after its bar code is scanned.

Some wireless systems can even automatically generate an optimally ordered pick list based on the clerk’s location in the warehouse. Using this sort of location-based service significantly reduces the route and length of time to pick items.
