Zebra Technologies has launched a new fulfillment solution developed specifically to maximize productivity in the warehouse.
The FulfillmentEdge product, which leverages Zebra’s Android-based mobile computers, enhances existing warehouse management systems (WMS) by enabling real-time dynamic workflows and routing mobile workers for pick and pack.
Zebra has also introduced the new single-finger RS5100 wireless ring scanner, providing mobile workers with an ultra-light hands-free scanning option for increased productivity in industrial environments.
According to Zebra’s recent 2024 Warehousing Vision Study, IT and operational decision makers are already taking steps to upgrade their facilities and WMS platforms. Findings show that 54% of surveyed organizations plan to implement full-featured WMS and mobile worker execution systems by 2024.
FulfillmentEdge integrates existing real-time WMS data with real-time location information, providing visibility into the location of workers, inventory and material handling assets. The solution then analyzes the information and creates real-time workflows delivered as electronic tasks that can contain visual directions to the next pick location and photos of the item to ensure picking accuracy.
“The on-demand economy is placing pressure on warehouse operations to quickly fulfill more orders than ever before, requiring a highly productive and efficient workforce,” said Joe White, senior vice president of Enterprise Mobile Computing, Zebra Technologies.
“Zebra’s intuitive FulfillmentEdge software and optional HD4000 head-mounted display provide mobile workers with clear, step-by-step instructions that reduce training time by 90% to allow near-instant onboarding while decision makers benefit from the real-time insights and analytics that enable better data-driven decisions.”
