GBC announces \”The Distributor’s Warehouse Guide To New Technologies and Avoiding Customer-Hurting Problems.”
The Guide helps distributors determine which new technologies to investigate, and how to increase warehouse accuracy/productivity — by describing 9 new and enhanced warehouse technologies, and 14 ways for preventing warehouse mistakes and increasing efficiency right now.
The 9 new / enhanced warehouse technologies include:
- Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID)
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV)
- An Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS)
- A single-arm robot
- Mobile robots
- Image-based bar code readers
- Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality
Some of these technologies may be able to reduce reliance on not-so-qualified and scarce-to-find warehouse workers, and increase warehouse accuracy and/or productivity; and reduce injuries.
While technology creates opportunities, there are costs and risks, so The Guide explains the pros and cons of each of thes new technologies. It was written by a 30-year distribution-industry veteran and Certified Management Consultant Dick Friedman who does not sell warehouse technology nor software. Dick Friedman helps -distributors determine the true costs of and achievable savings from implementing technologies considered; and helps prevent warehouse mistakes while increasing productivity (even where bar code scanning was not helping enough).
