Pitman Creek Wholesale found itself facing the classic growth challenge. Proliferating SKUs were creating headaches for fishing gear company Pitman Creek. But with WarehouseOS, things are going swimmingly. The feature was profiled in the recent issue of DC VELOCITY.
Pitman Creek purchased the WarehouseOS solution from Warehouse Mobile Solutions. A tablet-directed bar-code/order fulfillment solution, WarehouseOS enables Pitman Creek to manage the flow of products from the time they are received through putaway, replenishment, picking, and packing. Today, this process involves 70 operators on the floor utilizing iPads that are connected to small Bluetooth scanners. For purposes of putaway and picking, operators simply scan items and locations as directed by the tablet devices.
The WarehouseOS solution has enabled Pitman Creek to run a picking and packing incentive program for personnel based on their production. Following the initial implementation phase, the company launched an incentive base structure for warehouse employees that provided for workers to be paid by the units produced through picking, packing, and putaway, taking into account the accuracy of work as a qualifier. “This has been the single most productive program we have put in place to date,” Johnson says. “Our speed to shelf has never been faster, and we are [getting] more orders out than ever before with fewer resources in place.”

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.
