We all know that the supply chain of 2020 is a continuously changing and evolving environment. In order to compete and be successful in today’s omnichannel marketplace, your organization must have a solid foundation of accuracy and flexibility inside the warehouse. Even the best laid plans for that “amazing innovation” you want to offer customers can quickly come to a screeching halt if the orders are not picked correctly and delivered on time. Without the underlying mechanisms that enable accuracy and efficiency in the warehouse — and work the way modern workers expect technology to operate — you are building on shaky ground.
Visual Supply Chain Logistics is one of the technologies that supports your warehouse management and makes it much easier to be flexible, scalable and innovative. Imagine if you were developing a new customized packaging program for just one segment of your customers. The benefit of implementing visual supply chain logistics would most likely be a competitive advantage for your organization. However, the challenge would be embedding a new process into the warehouse picking process. How do you ensure every order gets picked and packaged in the correct way without slowing the pickers down to a crawl? Visual Logistics enables the warehouse or operations manager to add a warning image on the picking screen. The picker would then see a “custom packaging” image displayed and could tap on the image to obtain the detailed instructions as to the correct packaging process. It’s truly that simple and effective.
This is just one of many examples where Visual Supply Chain Logistics supports the foundation of your warehouse operations. By equipping your supply chain with the right technology, it is possible to achieve quick and accurate decisions, attain flawless execution, deliver excellent customer service, and stay ahead of the competition.
