Calculating the correct space needed in a warehouse, particularly a new warehouse can be tricky, according to Tim Hoj, CEO of Hoj Innovations, the parent company of WarehouseOS. The space needed is a real bottom-line consideration. Experts in logistics can reduce space needs by up to 50 percent, and the process of achieving that is akin to a kaizen event.
HOJ Innovations utilizes a rigorous process for professional warehouse layout design. This process directly determines the success of new or fast-growing businesses when moving into a new facility or distribution center. No matter the space or square feet suggested, it all fails if the warehouse is not optimized. Poorly planned warehouses experience losses in productivity and experience space capacity issues. Bad planning leads to situations of storage inadequacies. Design specialists must consider more than just square footage and storage considerations, but also rack systems design specialists who are able elevate warehouse and material handling processes to peak efficiency and production.
The verticality of a warehouse and the load bearing capacity of the floor are other considerations that affect racking choices and layout. Of course, the weight of the SKUs is a driving factor in determining how high the racking can be designed, which is closely linked to the strength of the floor, and the racking system chosen. There are new racking systems available that can expand the capacity of an older warehouse by distributing the weight differently.

WarehouseOS (https://warehousemobilesolutions.com), 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.
