When many people think of warehousing services, they often imagine big old warehouses run using manual systems to manage processes and stock. The reality however couldn’t be further from the truth.
Not only has technological advancements helped improve warehouse management processes, but many innovations have made warehousing and logistics much more affordable for businesses, whilst vastly increasing levels of visibility and accountability in the industry.
The most obvious implementation of technology in modern warehouses is for the management of inventory and unit counts. This is a vital process for both staff and clients at Warehouse One as it provides an up to the minute method of tracking stock levels. This makes it easy to run live websites with varying stock levels, and helps plan for stock replenishment.
The use of up to the minute stock management programmes also reduces the reliance on traditional communications via phone and email. Instead, clients can immediately monitor their stock without having to wait for a response from the warehouse team, and can therefore make decisions much quicker.
Another key element in the implementation of technology in warehouses is movement reports. These are a great tool for sales tracking, and allow clients to monitor sales trends, analyse data in relation to seasonal trends or sales events, and plan ahead accordingly.
At Warehouse One, we also make extensive use of technology in our logistics processes, with live tracking, job allocation systems and integrated truck cameras just a few of the examples available to clients.
