The Top 3 Ways to Evaluate Warehouse Technology

The technology you choose to implement in your warehouse can make or break your operations. Here are the three big ways you can measure whether your technology is helping or harming:

  1. Intelligent Production: Manufacturing processes are like networks, the more connected they are, the more effective they are. To truly streamline operations, your workforce should be able to communicate with each other, with the machines they operate, and with the materials they process, all in real-time.
  2. Flawless Fulfillment: It’s all about turning inventory into revenue. Businesses are built on the right goods getting to the right place at the right time. The logistics to make it happen converge in your warehouses and distribution centers, where you should be able to see, in real-time, what you have and where it needs to go.
  3. Dynamic Service: From your customer’s point of view, service is the sum total of all your efforts. To grow economies of scale and scope, your first focus should be serving the customers you already have. Your operations personnel should be delivering the highest level of service at the lowest cost per interaction.
