Posted April 1, 2013

Warehouse operations can benefit from technology to reduce waste and maximize efficiency. Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) with handheld bar code scanners and mobile computers with wireless communications are the tools of a modern warehouse

As a business grows, its warehouse and inventory needs increase. Often, the tools originally put in place to manage them do not. Inefficiencies from legacy systems usually go undetected and add hidden operating costs to a business. This is particularly important for Small and Medium Sized Businesses (SMB).  SMB’s have a smaller margin for error in managing their operational costs and need to make the most of every resource.

Warehouse operations can benefit from technology to reduce waste and maximize efficiency.  Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) with handheld bar code scanners and mobile computers with wireless communications are the tools of a modern warehouse.  This is true regardless of the size of the business.

Trenor Chooses the Memor Mobile Computer for TOPSHOP and TOPMAN

Posted March 7, 2013

Datalogic Memor Mobile ComputerOverview
Trenor Group is a fashion retailer with a franchise of brand stores. The company was founded in 2000 and is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. Thanks to an agreement with British fashion company Arcadia Group Ltd., a British retail giant in fashion, Trenor has a portfolio of many different brands, including the widely known TOPSHOP and TOPMAN.

The Challenge
Both the TOPSHOP and TOPMAN retail stores used a solution for store inventory management that required a lot of work and that was very time consuming. Every time an inventory procedure needed to be performed, someone from the head office would have to bring a laptop with a specific integrated application to each store, along with another terminal for wireless data transfer.

Intermec’s Workflow Solutions Reduce Costs and Increase Efficiencies

Posted February 13, 2013

Mis-Picks Cost Businesses Nearly $390,000 Per Year According to Intermec Study

According to a study recently conducted by Intermecdistribution centers are losing an average of nearly $390,000 per year due to mis-picks. With a new year bringing renewed pressure to boost efficiencies and drive costs down, the demands for faultless distribution processes have never been higher. Achieving productivity and accuracy goals is fundamental to improving profit margins, which is why more than half (59%) of managers are now turning to ‘The Perfect Order’ metric to identify areas for improvement.

The study, which surveyed 250 supply chain and distribution managers across the US, UK, France and Germany, found the average mis-pick costs approximately $22, with more than half (52%) of companies reporting a pick rate of less than 97%. A further 19 percent do not even measure the costs of mis-picks in any form, suggesting that the accumulated losses to the supply chain may be even higher.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, companies that have recently conducted a workflow process review found picking (47%) a key area where cost savings could most easily be achieved. For those using ‘The Perfect Order’ metric, opportunities for increased savings were clear, with complete shipments (43%) seen as the most profitable to the bottom line.
