According to Trevor Blumenau, CEO of Voodoo Robotics, based in Plano, TX, the characteristics most needed for an effective picking solution must offer machine to machine real-time productivity. SKU to SKU, Picker to Packer, high visibility, robust order pick displays with flexible mounting methods allow adaptable warehousing operations. Voodoo Robotics was featured in the recent issue of IoT Now magazine.
Comparing pick technologies side-by-side often reveals that Pick-to-Light solutions have best-practice picking accuracy. The light indicators make it difficult to pick from the wrong location – or the incorrect amount – when the light is both the pick instruction and location indicator.
There is a clear cost-advantage and scalability to Pick-to-Light solutions determined by the number of SKUs; a display is required for each SKU picked. With voice or RF scanning equipment, the variable cost is determined by the number of operators picking. These characteristics for picking solutions are a great starting point, but what matters most is picking the right product at the right place at the right time.

About Voodoo Robotics:
Voodoo Robotics (https://voodoorobotics.com/starter-kit/), the leading innovator in picking warehouse automation, provides cost-effective technology for warehouse inventory management and order fulfillment solutions. With engineering and robotic expertise, the Texas-based pioneer brings the next wave of state-of-the-art automation to material handling industries.
Voodoo offers a unique lease-based Pick-to-Light system designed to modernize warehouse operations by leveraging the latest IIoT (Industrial Internet-of-Things) technology. The picking hardware integrates effortlessly with existing WMS (Warehouse Management Systems), or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems allowing distribution centers, warehouses, and 3PLs (third party logistics) to scale operations, only paying for the lights needed each month. This revolutionary approach to leasing Pick-to-Light devices on a month-to-month, pay-as-you-go basis avoids long-term commitments and costly up-front fees.
A companion product, SKU-Keeper Inventory Management, is designed for warehouses that do not have an existing WMS or ERP system. Emphasizing simplicity and easy-of-use, the cloud software is also leased on a low-cost, low-risk month-to-month basis.
The company also provides smart, ROI (return-on-investment) driven Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) with an innovative 3D user interface, compatible with Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari. The robotic systems are designed, simulated and run, all using a Warehouse Descriptive Language (WDL), a concept invented by the company.
All of Voodoo Robotics products are patented or patent-pending. Currently the company is attracting best-practice, lean manufacturing focused, systems integrators throughout North America. The company is a proud member of MHI. Follow Voodoo Robotics on Twitter at @VoodooRobotics.
