According to Tim Hoj, CEO of Warehouse Mobile Solutions, makers of WarehouseOS, retailers and logistics companies are opening warehouses at a record pace to ensure online orders reach customers as quickly as possible. Many are struggling to find workers to staff them. “Small or large e-commerce success relies on “pickers” to grab items off warehouse shelves and prepare shipments,” insisted Hoj.
The unemployment rate, now at a ten-year low, has made the competition for warehouse workers very tight and these workers are demanding and receiving much higher hourly wages, now averaging $12.15 an hour according to ProLogistix, a logistics staffing firm. Hourly earnings rose 2.8% across all professions over the past year versus 6% for warehouse workers.

The RF gun, constant verifications, small keypads, and hard to read screens are quickly becoming yesterday’s technology. Tablets are replacing the RF gun. WarehouseOS, a new tablet-based Warehouse Operations System brings warehouses into the future today. Warehouse management systems have been around for a long time with too many companies still using the RF gun to conduct inventory management, scan in new items, and pick orders. The RF gun solutions typically cost double what modern solutions offer. WarehouseOS and associated apps have been developed to make everything about the warehouse easier and better. Apps allow small or large companies to receive products, manage inventory, perform cycle counting, conduct single picks or do batch picking, verify items picked and pack them into boxes.
An easy to navigate user interface means warehouse personnel need almost no training before performing warehouse tasks. Receiving, put-away, picking, and packaging quickly become the easiest jobs on the floor. A team of experts in material handling equipment and solutions developed WarehouseOS to maximize the throughput of warehousing and distributing facilities. From small eCommerce, to high volume SKU facilities, from omni-channel companies to FMCG (fast moving consumer goods), WarehouseOS is equipped to handle everything. From small startups with simple needs to complex, large distribution centers, WarehouseOS is the tablet solution which enables manufacturers and distribution centers to be a step ahead of the competition.
