A Warehouse Robotics Company Implements iPad Mini & Powerful Barcode Scanning Solution

Posted July 6, 2018

warehouse-robotsExecutive Summary
A warehouse robotics manufacturing company was in search of a user interface to complete and enhance their robots. A powerful barcode scanning solution with a strong and durable scan engine was required to improve processes. Additionally, it needed to be compatible with the iPad Mini due to their workers familiarity with the product and integration with their existing enterprise software.

Barcodes identified an optimal barcode scanning solution that not only streamlined processes but also increased the revenue stream for a robotics company’s clients.

The Business Challenge
The robots created by the robotics company are used at their customer’s facilities. A technologically advanced solution was required to allow warehouse associates the ability to interact directly with the robots for order picking, inventory control, and efficiency measures. They need a simple and lightweight solution to implement various warehouse management applications.

Solution
Barcodes recommended the Infinite Peripherals Infinea Tab™ M and case (CS-TAL) with 1D/2D barcode scanner, along with the Apple iPad Mini. This allowed mobile employees to convert the Apple iPad Mini into a powerful warehouse management and scanning solution to fulfill their operational needs. The Infinea Tab™ M has a 2D imager scan engine which reads the most widely used 1D and 2D barcodes that has made it the ideal solution for order picking and inventory control.

Benefits
Having implemented the solution, the warehouse robotics company has seen the benefits of using an iPad mini and powerful scanning solution in one. The intuitive user interface on the Infinea Tab™ M has led to increased productivity by the end users, which has allowed more orders to ship; thus, revenue to increase for their customers.

The warehouse robotics company has scaled widely once their robots were delivered and implemented at each of their customer’s site. Not only through word of mouth, but through various trade shows, the interest in the robots and the technology used within the robots has set the company on a path for tremendous growth with the help of Barcodes.

Being right 99% of the time seems like a quality percentage – until you calculate what that 1% actually costs an organization.

    • At 99% accuracy 39,322 babies are sent home to the wrong parents
  • Prescriptions filled annually in the United States = 4.27 billion
    • At 99% accuracy 42.7 million Rx are filled incorrectly
  • Distribution Centers pick 250 million units annually
    • At 99% accuracy 2.5 million units are picked incorrectly
      • That’s almost 7,000 units picked incorrectly every day if working 365 days/year

Long Range, Accurate RTLS with Zebra’s WhereNET Solutions

Posted April 27, 2016

wherlanTracking and managing valuable assets is major concern for many industries especially in manufacturing and warehouse environments. Whether you’re tracking a work-in-process or general inventory and assets, the greater accuracy and closer to real-time visibility you can achieve is directly connected to business success.

RFID-based systems provide an immediate and non-line of sight means to capture your inventory or asset collection. However, the most common passive RFID tags and readers have a limited range and still require a user to scan the tags or pass them through a fixed reader portal. This is where Zebra’s WhereNET active RFID solutions can provide the range that can be used over your entire facility, yielding maximum coverage.  With maximum coverage you will have real-time visibility into your entire business and operations, providing you with actionable data in order to make smarter decisions.

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.

In addition, improper warehouse management means you could be missing valuable business insights, which could help you make more informed decisions to improve the overall health of your company and avoid the above scenario.

That’s where a barcoding system comes in; it empowers you to put away the pencil and paper and forget about spreadsheets. A barcoding system is a powerful tool that reduces the piles of paperwork, decreases user error and provides critical information in real time. And it doesn’t matter whether you are a small single-store business with a warehouse in the back or a large manufacturer with several distribution centers barcoding fills in accuracy gaps that can significantly improve inventory control.

Not convinced? Your operations might be experiencing the following challenges that a barcoding system can solve:

Datalogic’s Skorpio X3 Streamlines Processes and Improves Efficiency at SuperGroup

Posted February 15, 2016

Datalogic Skorpio X3 Mobile ComputerOverview
UK Fashion Retailer SuperGroup Plc offers quality clothing and accessories through e-commerce, a multi-channel network of stores and wholesale operations. In 2003, the company owner joined forces with a UK designer to develop and create a new in-house brand known as Superdry. This brand offers a wide range of clothing, bags and accessories. It has a wide appeal, capturing elements of “urban” and “street wear” designs with subtle combinations of vintage Americana, Japanese imagery and British tailoring, all with strong attention to detail. 135 UK and European stores, as well as celebrity publicity from David Beckham and Zac Efron, has driven Superdry to become an internationally acclaimed fashion brand sold in over 100 countries.

The Challenge
The popularity of Superdry grew the number of stores at a rapid rate, straining operations. This began to impact sales, as accurate and up-to-date information on inventory was not available. Keeping this in consideration, Superdry decided to upgrade their systems for POS and inventory management. The new automation system would include: hardware for shelf replenishment, inventory management and fast service at the point of sale. All these applications would be performed precisely and quickly on a handheld device to boost efficiency and enhance the shopping experience for customers. Continue reading »

Zebra has recently introduced the TC8000 enterprise mobile computer, a landmark innovation in warehousing technology that will drive significant gains in productivity and decrease worker fatigue. The ergonomic, lightweight TC8000 mobile computer offers an innovative design that reduces muscle effort by eliminating the need for “tilt and verify” motions warehouse workers repeatedly conduct with traditional devices. Shaving seconds off each repetitive motion saves one hour per worker per shift, increasing productivity by an average of 14 percent based on workflow.

Zebra worked with users around the globe to completely re-think, re-design and re-engineer industrial mobile computers based on deep research and human factors analysis.  The result is the new rugged Android-based TC8000 mobile computer, 33 percent lighter than traditional mobile computers and requiring less muscle effort and reduced wrist motion to help increase the productivity of warehouse workers.  It also reduces training time and makes data entry significantly faster and more accurate in challenging industrial settings.
