Mobile Devices are Boosting Efficiency and Communication in the Warehouse

January 9th 2014 10:00:46 AM



As you know, inventory management is an important aspect of any good warehouse management strategy. With large amounts of products moving in and out of the warehouse every day, having access to real-time data is invaluable to everyone in the process, including warehouse workers, managers, and retailers. Mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, are commonly used in the warehouse to update inventory levels, track inventory as it moves through the warehouse, and access important inventory data. In fact, studies have shown that companies who use mobile devices in the warehouse experience an almost instant rise in their productivity levels.

Mobile devices bridge the gap that often exists between warehouse tasks and warehouse management software. Inventory numbers are updated immediately as soon as they are scanned. Real-time reports can be accessed from any mobile device, creating an awareness of what is happening in the warehouse at any given time. Smartphones and tablets automate time-consuming tasks so warehouse workers can focus on more important jobs. With portable technology and real-time updates, warehouse managers have everything they need to run an effective warehouse.

Mobile devices can dramatically improve your warehouse efficiency and boost the communication between your warehouse workers, managers, and executives.
