Warehouse receiving scanners

Identify and verify shipments in real-time by scanning barcodes, RFID tags, or RMA labels. Mobile processes empower receiving staff to be more productive and accurate.

Ensure constant voice and data communication throughout your warehouse and yard. Access, capture and send information anywhere in your warehouse with wireless devices.

PUT-AWAY AND REPLENISHMENT

To ensure optimal inventory levels are maintained in the warehouse, you need to accurately document pertinent product information and location during the replenishment and put-away process. This is imperative for warehouse operations like picking, cycle counting, and reordering to run smoothly. Rugged Development has put-away and replenishment solutions paired with your Warehouse Management System (WMS). You can mobilize and empower your workforce to see exactly where something is stored and how much is available.

Know when stock is added or replenished so inventory planners can accurately anticipate purchasing cycles and manufacturing schedules.

Help workers efficiently and accurately complete their transactions in the put-away aisle. Hand-held, wearable, and vehicle-mounted devices provide the right device for the job, with instant worker-to-worker communication across the warehouse.

Eliminate out-of-stocks with rapid replacement of goods into the appropriate location and WMS, reducing unnecessary lost sales opportunities.

VOICE-DIRECTED PICKING

Whether you have a distribution center that specializes in high velocity picking or a warehouse full of pallets and cases, Rugged Development has multi-modal and voice-directed picking solutions allow you to experience both speed and accuracy in either situation. Accuracy is essential to ensure consumer safety and satisfaction, as well as inventory and materials management. Using the power of voice, scanning, and visual cues, workers can perform hands-free tasks and dramatically increase speed, without sacrificing accuracy.

Wearable Computer

Simplify the entire picking process and increase productivity with mobile devices – from finding the best route to an item, to on-the-spot verification, and instantly updating product inventory.

Enable workers to utilize spoken instructions and have additional input modes to simplify and increase task completion speed and accuracy. Multi-modal speech-directed wearable solutions combine the benefits of industry accuracy rates of up to 99.8% delivered by voice-directed picking with simple hands-free scanning to shave seconds off the validation of each transaction.

Locate inventory more quickly through voice-directed picking. Experienced workers know instantly if inventory has been moved and seasonal workers get up and running faster with less of a learning curve.

PACKING AND STAGING

Packing and staging are the most hands-on jobs in your warehouse and distribution center’s shipping department. Any distraction or error can lead to an incorrect shipment and dissatisfied customer. To ensure accuracy at this critical point, we have hands-free technology that confirms orders with a quick scan, prints a shipping label with the correct destination, and allows you to continue tracking each package to the right truck.

Using wearable or fixed-mount presentations, workers in the packing and staging area can focus on the task at hand so they can be more productive and accurate.

Capture data from 1D or 2D barcodes and RFID so you can continue to evolve your warehouse operations and ensure compliance and traceability with the right mix of data capture options.  

Achieve flawless fulfillment by doing a final check at the end of the line to ensure that each order has been accurately picked, packed, and staged for the right destination.

Cross Docking & Shipping

Coordinating cross-docking activities require a high degree of visibility of assets to ensure efficient and accurate movement of both goods, equipment, and people. Rugged Development and Zebra’s mobile solutions help ensure that right shipments are put on the right trailer in the right order. Your loading dock is the last touch point before goods are shipped to the customer. Eliminate many of your manual processes and ensure goods get on the right truck in the right order, while optimizing trailer space. Rugged Development has scanning, RFID tags and readers, and camera technology with analytics software provide you with the automation you need to effectively verify shipping details, trailer assignments, and space utilization to confidently ensure flawless fulfillment.
