Properly upgrading your inventory operations is a crucial process because it costs time and money, but it ensures that your warehouse is ready for consumer demands. Luckily, ValuTrack and Zebra partner to provide businesses with effective technology solutions that can help meet shifting demands and inventory needs
Current Warehousing Struggles
Finding new ways to prevent rising out-of-stocks is important to maintaining effective inventory management. Reducing out-of-stocks helps maintain an accurate inventory, which improves shipping requirements to meet customer demands. This can be achieved by implementing reliable devices, which help improve data capture, printing, and reliability. Studies show that today, 73% of organizations plan to begin warehouse modernization by equipping workers with mobile devices and that 62% of warehouses report human error from manual processes as the biggest cause of inventory fulfillment issues. Furthermore, 67% of warehouses indicate that being out of stock after an order is placed or simply overselling are the biggest inventory mistakes that lead to lost customers. Not upgrading your warehouse operations with mobile devices can leave it more susceptible to errors and out-of-stocks, which in turn diminishes productivity and reduces customer satisfaction.
Simplify Inventory Management and Accuracy with ValuTrack and Zebra.
As mentioned earlier, properly upgrading your inventory operations is a crucial process because it costs time and money, but it ensures that your warehouse is ready for consumer demands. Luckily, ValuTrack and Zebra partner to provide businesses with effective technology solutions that can help meet shifting demands and inventory needs. However, reducing out-of-stocks are possible with these key components…
1. Implement real-time visibility with accurate data capture – empowered with enhanced scanners and reliable RFID technology. Relying on manual data capture solutions can reduce inventory accuracy and cost resources like time and money. Equipping your distributors and delivery teams with fortified technology solutions, like Zebra’s RFD90 handheld and ultra-rugged scanners, equips your workers with real-time updates and enhanced data visibility so they can locate assets faster and improve inventory accuracy. This is achievable with industry-leading performance that reads barcodes faster with a superior scanning range. 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. Additionally, these devices are also built to withstand everyday use in manufacturing, transportation, and logistics environments.
2. Flexible barcode printing capabilities – Empower your workers with the ability to consistently and accurately print barcodes to help them maintain a more accurate inventory that reduces out-of-stocks. The right printing solution delivers superior flexibility to streamline asset tracking and inventory management even when things get busy. With Zebra’s ZT600 RFID industrial printers, workers can print an expanded range of barcodes, get unparalleled visibility, reduce downtime, eliminate return shipment costs, and increase inventory returns to simplify inventory management and asset tracking. See how in our video.
3. Increased device reliability with rugged design – Ensure reliable operation in the toughest environments with purpose-built designs that handle warehouse environments. Mobile devices that are built for tough environments can keep warehouse workflows consistent to streamline inventory management and accuracy. Less downtime and effective operation lead to fewer out-of-stocks. Zebra’s DS3600 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. Superior scanning and rugged reliability help streamline your inventory to reduce stockouts.
As out-of-stock rates continue to rise, the need for warehouses to maintain a more accurate and efficient inventory that meets demands also increases. Contact us at ValuTrack to start implementing RFID technology that boosts inventory management.
