Warehouse working using the rugged Zebra ET6 Android Tablet


Now more than ever, warehouses are facing ever evolving and contemporary problems thanks to today’s supply chains that are continually becoming modernized through digitization. The biggest include visibility of inventory, shortages in labor, maintaining adequate levels of worker satisfaction, and tediously redundant tasks that leave room for human error and frustration—including inaccurate reporting, missing inventory, inefficient picking, inaccuracies in manual data entry-based activities, and overstocks, for instance. Truly, there has never been a better time to optimize your warehouse operations with automation. This is, mostly, because of exponential growth in ecommerce. As a result, instantly connected customers expect real-time fulfillment with days and, sometimes, hours. Additionally, competition is ramping up, as many new warehouses are gradually covering the thoroughfares of the world. Is there a way to keep up with the pace? Sure, in short: technology.

The Benefits of Better Technology

According to a survey of warehouse IT and operational decision-makers conducted by Zebra Technologies, ¾ plan to implement new technology to stay competitive. The result of doing so? Increased efficiency, productivity, profitability, and—most importantly—worker satisfaction. As labor shortages continue to surge, with an immense 77% of employers being unable to fill job openings, decreasing employee turnover rates and keeping existing employees satisfied has never been so important. Without question, your workers are the most important part of your operations. So much so, providing them with technology that helps them succeed not only increases the overall efficiency of your operations by 10% or more, but it also diminishes everyday frustrations that can cause expensive employee turnover. Simply put, equipping your workers with the proper technology will bring numerous cost-savings and benefits to productivity that will lead to quicker return on investment (ROI). Similarly, based on the same Zebra study, over 75% of SMB warehouse leaders believe that enhancing labor with devices and technology is the best way to initially implement automation into a warehousing operation.
