One of the most important challenges in warehousing is properly managing your inventory to maintain proper inventory quality and meet demands. Inventory fulfillment issues can lead to missed deliveries, incorrect shipments, and ultimately disappointed customers. Manual operations are not as effective at maintaining inventory control. Studies show that 62% of warehouses report human error from manual processes as the biggest cause of inventory fulfillment issues. Consequently, more businesses are modernizing their warehouses by implementing versatile automation solutions that help your workers efficiently track inventory and capture data. In fact, 77% of warehouse decision-makers agree they need to modernize operations, but only 35% have a clear understanding of where to start automating. Without proper modernization, more errors in order fulfillment could arise as a result of improper inventory management. This means slower shipments and unhappy customers. To boost inventory control, today’s warehouses and distribution centers must effectively implement automation solutions to provide their workers with the help they need to meet shifting demands.

Streamline order fulfillment with ValuTrack and Zebra.

Choosing effective automation technology solutions can be difficult because of shifting demands and the needs of your inventory. Fortunately, ValuTrack and Zebra partner to provide businesses with fortified automation solutions that provide instant updates to improve order fulfillment operations. Ensure complete inventory control with these best ways…

  1. Achieve real-time visibility with accurate data capture – Relying on manual data capture solutions can hinder inventory accuracy and waste time and money. Equipping your distributors and delivery teams with RFID technology solutions, like Zebra’s RFD90 handheld, equips your workers with real-time updates and enhanced data visibility so they can locate assets faster and improve inventory accuracy. This helps your workers streamline inventory control because they are given valuable insights into asset tracking and information, so they can effectively track and locate assets.

  2. Increase device reliability with rugged design – Additionally, Zebra’s ultra-rugged scanners ensure reliable operation even in challenging environments. Empower your warehouse staff with industry-leading performance that can read 1D/2D barcodes at a superior scanning range while also being engineered to withstand everyday use in manufacturing, transportation, and logistics environments. Zebra’s DS3600 reads barcodes printed on labels 60% closer and 35% farther than other models in its class, can read up to 20 barcodes with a single scan, and is equipped with the highest drop, tumble, and sealing specifications in its class to withstand 10 ft. drops to concrete and 7,500 tumbles.

  3. Enhance task management and boost workplace productivity – Inputting data, scanning barcodes, and checking inbound items manually limits productivity. Implementing technology into your distribution centers and warehouses can streamline inventory management and improve receiving time.
