Gain Time & Increase Productivity
with Order Management
ABECAS Insight – Enterprise Management System
It is critical for your business to be prepared to fulfill orders in a timely fashion. This management screen provides a snapshot look at all order activity and has tools for efficient workflow.
Scanning barcodes and using mobile computers is not only about speeding up your workers, it’s about task efficiency.
Don’t look to scanning to make picking faster, or increase your lifts per hour for putaways– look for the benefits that flow from doing it right the first time. Scanning will actually add time to the tasks, the time to grasp the device, aim, shoot the barcode(s) and get a confirmation of the scan. It’s after the scan that the benefits start to flow. Now the right product is in the right place, your inventory is accurate and your transaction is visible to your CSRs and supervisors.
Accurate inventory has a huge payback, both in labor and service.
In the current market the 3PL provider has two choices, substantially increase revenue from value added services or struggle to survive in a storage focused world with diminishing inventory.
Arguably the recession is over, but this one is different. Unemployment is still high, inventories are still being held back and neither is looking at changing in the foreseeable future. Traditional 3PL truckload in, truckload out businesses are suffering and there seems little hope of a turnaround.
To prosper today, the industry must move towards a much higher proportion of revenue from value added services. In discussions with our own 3PL partners, we are seeing significant growth in those who are able to move their business into the fulfillment arena or offer 4PL type services to their customers. We are also seeing those locked into a storage/handling model suffering and losing business.
