Technology has always been one of the greatest drivers of change in any industry. From steam engines to the internet, it is estimated that technological advances have been responsible for a tenfold increase in labor wages within the past 200 years. Not only are advances smarter, but they are also faster. For example, in 2010, collected data intelligence from global outlets comprised 2 zettabytes of information. As of 2019, that number has jumped to 41 zettabytes, which is enough data to fill over 10,000 billion DVDs, collected in a span of nine years.
As our world continues to change, warehousing efficiency continues to adapt to meet new consumer demands. To stay ahead of change, Avalon Integration is taking a closer look at three productivity-enhancing technologies permeating warehouses nationwide.
Take a look in our video:
- Breakthrough limitations with virtual reality – Maximizing both worker safety and productivity, hands-free technology such as Zebra’s HD4000 keeps your workforce focused and directs workflows through one lightweight adaptable solution.
- Overcome change with the adaptable EC30 – Compact yet strong, the EC30 helps eliminate future software and application issues since it can house your updates without losing functionality over longer periods of time, compared to consumer devices. That means you can continue to add changes and/or new users without recurrently purchasing new devices.
- Accelerate efficient picking with voice technology – Boost productivity by 15% when you combine the power of enterprise headsets with Zebra’s WT6000 and ring scanners to optimize order accuracy with high ergonomics. Create intelligent pick paths while providing secured connectivity channels and reliable data capture that expedites order fulfillment without hindering accuracy.
Where do these technologies fit?
While there are many different sorts of technologies available, Avalon’s experts make sure your workforce is equipped with solutions that work for them. Stay ahead of change when you create a custom modernization solution, tailored to your needs.
