Warehouse Mobile Solutions Favors Tablets and Eliminate RF Gun
Companies, such as Warehouse Mobile Solutions, makers of WarehouseOS, are making a strong movement to tablets as the preferred mechanism in materials handling. Warehouse Mobile Solutions tablet technology for warehouse management was recently featured in an article titled, “Productivity in the Warehouse Accomplished by Eliminating the RF Guns and Moving to Tablet Technology,” in Automation & Controls Today magazine.
According to manufacturing journalist TR Cutler, “When it comes to productivity in the warehouse, too often plant managers and distribution center managers confuse how software and scanners impact the time it takes to fulfill customer orders. Having employees tethered to cumbersome hand-held terminals while trying to key in information on a small, hard-to-read screen prevents maximized picking rates and optimal order accuracy.”
New solutions are moving away from the RF guns and are demonstrating double picking rates after only 10 minutes of training with enclosures mounted to mobile picking carts. The company recently completed the installation of its Tablet Directed, Barcode/Order Fulfillment Solution, at Hot Shots Distributing located in Charlotte, North Carolina. For nearly two decades the company has been supplying the fiery food industry with over 1,400 fiery products. Utilizing the latest version of WarehouseOS, Version 2.0, fully integrated with Hot Shots ERP system, order fulfillment, and inventory management are now a paperless process.

The RF gun, constant verifications, small keypads, and hard to read screens are quickly becoming yesterday’s technology. Tablets are replacing the RF gun. WarehouseOS, a new tablet-based Warehouse Operations System brings warehouses into the future today. Warehouse management systems have been around for a long time with too many companies still using the RF gun to conduct inventory management, scan in new items, and pick orders. The RF gun solutions typically cost double what modern solutions offer. WarehouseOS and associated apps have been developed to make everything about the warehouse easier and better. Apps allow small or large companies to receive products, manage inventory, perform cycle counting, conduct single picks or do batch picking, verify items picked and pack them into boxes.
An easy to navigate user interface means warehouse personnel need almost no training before performing warehouse tasks. Receiving, put-away, picking, and packaging quickly become the easiest jobs on the floor. A team of experts in material handling equipment and solutions developed WarehouseOS to maximize the throughput of warehousing and distributing facilities. From small eCommerce, to high volume SKU facilities, from omni-channel companies to FMCG (fast moving consumer goods), WarehouseOS is equipped to handle everything. From small startups with simple needs to complex, large distribution centers, WarehouseOS is the table solution which enables manufacturers and distribution centers to be a step ahead of the competition.
