The manufacturing industry had open-heartedly welcomed mechanization and automation in the late 20th century. The global warehouse robotics market is segmented on the basis of type into articulated robots, gantry robots, robotic arms, and mobile robots.
According to Tim Hoj, CEO of Warehouse Mobile Solutions, makers of WarehouseOS, “Warehouse is the most crucial part of the entire supply chain process. This is where the products transit from the production facility, identified, sorted, and consequently tagged to be stored in a recorded location until ordered. This has made it necessary to move mechanization and automation into the warehouse, revolutionizing warehouse business to help the companies reduce overhead costs, and increase productivity with consistency and accuracy, wherein artificial intelligence has helped achieve this particular task. The adoption of this technology has already commenced, and is mainly driven by the intense competition between the brick-and-mortar stores and online stores, as online retailers are trying hard to reduce the time it takes to deliver items to their customers.”
Hoj suggested that the balance between driving labor efficiency and robotics is an on-going discussion. For most of our smaller e-commerce customers, robotics represents an unaffordable option, and ensuring picking and packing labor is 100% accurate and efficient is the leanest choice for years to come.

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.
