4 Signs Your Warehouse Needs a Barcoding System

Posted February 29, 2016

warehouse-lean-manufacturing-principles2Picture this…Employees are wandering the aisles of your warehouse, trying to find an inventory item to complete a shipment that must go out today. Unfortunately, the item appears to be either out of stock or has been placed in the wrong section of your facility. The problem is your manual records are incorrect so you have no way of knowing.

The bottom line…Quickly locating and picking inventory is a challenge. And your current equipment and processes are not helping matters.

If this sounds all too familiar, you are not alone. In fact, a recent research study has shown that inefficient workflows cost companies nearly 3,000 productive hours and $390,000 in mispicks every year. That’s a lot of time and money down the proverbial drain.
