Small Businesses Avoid Costly Mis-Picks with WarehouseOS

WarehouseOS is a tool that increases accuracy and reduces mis-picks. Distribution centers are losing an average of nearly $585,000 per year due to mis-picks. Although it may not seem like a big problem, the cost of picking mistakes includes the cost of the incorrect item, the cost of shipping and the cost of lost time returning it to stock. Even worse, mis-picks may result in the loss of customers.

An estimated 35 percent of facilities experience ongoing mis-pick rates of one percent or more. Although one percent may seem like an acceptable failure rate, it can quickly become a growing problem if not properly managed.

The data from supply chain and distribution managers show that the cost of the average mis-pick is around $30 per incident. Less than one-in-five small e-commerce companies measure mis-picks in any form; the cost might be even higher than estimated depending on the warehouse.

Great entrepreneurs with a great online product are not necessarily great at fulfillment management. No one starts a business because they are experts at packing and shipping boxes. So, learning how to manage inventory effectively may take a while without the right tools.

About WarehouseOS

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.
