Warehousing Applications Overview

Retailers everywhere receive products from massive warehouses. Finding your way around one is daunting enough without having to look for a specific item within the multiple acres of aisles and storage racks. But this environment is where CipherLab mobile computers and wireless handheld scanners thrive and bring enormous benefits to warehouse operators and distribution managers.

With CipherLab industrial mobile computers, picking and put away could never be easier. Applications loaded into the mobile computers guide warehouse workers where each product is located - aisle, rack, and shelf. As goods are picked or put away, databases are remotely updated through Bluetooth® or wireless LAN technology. Warehouse and destination store managers know the status of goods movement as it happens. Bluetooth® technology lets workers print picking receipts instantly on a Bluetooth®-enabled printer and connect to other Bluetooth® devices that might be needed.

CipherLab technology integrated within the supply chain management system improves efficiency and productivity.
