Tablet-based solutions like Warehouse Operating Systems (WOS), help with inventory management and reverse logistics as warehouses are addressing the neglected leg of the supply chain: the last mile. Warehouse Operating Systems or WarehouseOS was recently featured in Quality Digest.
Although tablets and mobile devices can provide the needed visibility, they are relatively new to the most important part of the supply chain: last-mile delivery. Whether handled internally or relegated to third-party logistics (3PLs), customer orders can face an ugly journey on their last mile. Improved processes and decreased operational costs are driving the utilization of mobile tablets. Although radio frequency (RF) guns continue to collect data in the supply-chain process, tablets allow a better user interface with touch screens, connected Bluetooth ring scanners, and a highly visual interface with pictures, colors, and more data fields. The RF gun is harder to train on, is usually handheld, and the screen interface is more cumbersome.
Tablets are particularly effective in capturing analytics, which helps improve workflows at the dock, in route planning, fleet management, and delivery. Choosing tablets to manage delivery processes allows for improved, quantifiable throughput and customer satisfaction.
Tablets are specifically designed to support a delivery environment, transforming the last-mile delivery process by refocusing time and energy on core responsibilities, rather than managing delivery schedules, drivers, and trucks.
Quality Digest provides the ideal medium for reaching the entire quality spectrum. The publication presents all facets of quality, including metrology, Six Sigma, lean, inspection, testing, SPC, software, and international standards.

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.
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.
