Are you using barcodes and scanners in your warehouse yet?
If not, why not?
The average human makes a mistake for every 300 characters they write, which averages out at 18 mistakes an hour. In a working week that 720 mistakes per employee- can you really afford that level of error?
Conversely, barcoding nearly eradicates human error and is over 99% accurate.
And it’s much quicker too. When you account for the errors being made by staff, one staff member can enter 432 pieces of data, whereas we can scan 1800 barcodes in the same time. It’s over 400% quicker to scan a barcode than manually enter the same data.
Warehousing is big business, and it’s set to grow by 2.1% p.a. between now and 2023. In a huge market, it’s vital to be competitive and reducing error and boosting efficiency are key improvements that organisations need to make to keep up with their competitors.
This is one of the reasons we enabled barcode and QR code scanning on myWarehouse as it has the potential to make a huge difference for our customers.
Our plug and play solution can completely digitise warehouses with real-time inventory tracking, integration with SAP ERP, and online and offline support. myWarehouse provides a mobile interface to the SAP inventory and warehouse management system that is simple to implement and even works alongside mobile label printing.
We also support our customers with barcode label design and mass printing to get them ready for the transition to a paperless warehouse. From printing the barcoded labels, scanning stock for goods receipts, to checking inventory, to scanning out stock for sale or use.
What’s more, these processes substantially improve on the 18 mistakes and 432 pieces of data that can be done manually, instead, we reduce mistakes and substantially up productivity.
We understand warehouses too and know that so many of them have blind spots with no mobile network and no WiFi which is why we made sure this works offline too, sending any updates as soon as the mobile divide with myWarehouse is back online. It’s something we’ve found a lot of solutions don’t consider!
So to summarise, barcoding reduces error and speeds up manual processes which in turn makes for a more efficient warehouse that serves its customers and key functions.
In this day and age, you really have no excuse to not digitise!
