Automated and Systematic Solution to Improve Overall Operations
After an extended search in the market, WithoutWire was considered the best option because of its configurability and overall ease of use, which enabled efficient and accurate tracking throughout production and the distribution process. In addition, WithoutWire provides an exceptional web console that allows multiple users to utilize the inventory management platform in different capacities, such as accessing real-time reporting features, printing shipment documentation, reviewing cycle counts, and tracking of product location. With its certified list of iOS and Android smartphones, rugged and semi-rugged device options, using their mobile app platform, it was an easy decision. Hutchinson added that “assigning orders through our previous process took hours for one person, and now through our 4-zone system it’s as simple as reviewing and assigning orders which greatly improves our picking efficiency.”
“Our warehouse team was eager to embrace the WithoutWire mobile interface.”
