How to limit the amount of documentation and save time thanks to one application?
Because time is money
Had it not been for the mobile devices, unloading the delivery of components would take considerably longer, increasing work time cost and the risk of mistakes. Upon counting the goods and noting the amounts at the destination point, it would be advisable to go to a PC and enter those items of information in the system, including the location of goods in the warehouse, etc. The time-consuming nature and poor quality of the gathered data made the once omnipresent system of manual entering of deliveries, relocations in the warehouse, internal and external releases to be consigned to the dark recesses of history, giving way to the advanced technologies of mobile devices. Companies with a high warehouse capacity which rely on efficacy, precision and the quick execution of operations cannot allow for the lack of proper solution; mobile solutions are that answer.
One of the most common activities in a warehouse is accepting a delivery and comparing it with the order. Using mobile solutions we have the possibility to refer to a particular order in the IT system, directly from a mobile device, away from the PC workstation.
Execution of an operation
Such an operation using a mobile device is executed as follows: at the moment of delivery the warehouse operative scans the order number placed on the delivery note. The mobile application shows the order and the warehouse employee can verify the order, scan the bar codes of the delivered goods and confirm the delivery in the mobile application. Confirming the completion of the order, the warehouse attendant registers the relocation of the materials from the delivery zone to the particular location in the warehouse, with the amount, type, content and place of storage included. Even though access to an integrated IT system is not available, the data from the mobile application is automatically sent, after the confirmation of the operation. This is completed quickly and efficiently, without any unnecessary saving, checking, and copying of data to the system.
The whole logistics system benefits from it
The mobile solutions allow for the electronic registration of warehouse operations, at the point of their execution. What’s more, the information regarding those operations can be easily sent to the system wirelessly, at any time. The basic advantage of using this system by the warehouse employees is the time saved resulting from precise information about the storage location. Another, and far more crucial for the people using the gathered data, is the minimisation of potential errors. For instance, it is vital to the production department which requires reliable and up-to-date information on the amount of raw materials in the warehouse.
