Handheld Scanner Software and Other Warehouse Improvements

October 10th 2019 15:00:00 PM

Handheld scanner software and other warehouse improvements can make your business safer and more cost-efficient. These scanners work with typical smartphones, tablets, and other equipment, so there’s a relatively small learning curve for employees to learn how to use them. Best of all, they integrate easily with Sage 100, streaming information on your inventory directly into your ERP system.

Why Handheld Scanners Are Great Warehouse Improvements 

There are plenty of warehouse improvements you can make. You can reorganize stock, install automation systems and more. Handheld scanners easily help your warehouse make a great leap forward when it comes to efficiency. 

Instead of taking manual counts, shutting down portions of your warehouse and hiring extra workers during inventory cycles, handheld scanners automatically update the inventory daily. This ensures that every day you have an accurate stock count and can make ordering and sales decisions quickly. 

Other Warehouse Improvements to Boost the Bottom Line

There are a few other simple warehouse improvements you can make to boost the bottom line. 

  1. Install automatic lights: Automatic lights turn and on off via motion sensors. They can reduce your electricity bill by shutting off lights in unused sections of the warehouse.
  2. Install LED lights: LED lights cut energy usage and can save on your electric bill.
  3. Minimize steps: Put high-demand items near the packing area so that workers minimize steps and time walking the warehouse.
