New module of proprietary EventTracker WMS delivers optimal pick strategies from a single, virtual inventory
October 30, 2014
HOUSTON, October 30,
EventPick uses advanced optimization techniques to allow Port Logistics Group associates to pick multiple orders simultaneously along a continuous pick path, reducing travel time and increasing order accuracy. The system is entirely paperless, supports a high picking rate, and is simple to use, reducing training time and allowing for fast implementation. Pick instructions are downloaded to a “smart cart” sub-system that determines the size of order clusters based on the number of orders and the cart container types.
Stephens likens EventPick to a mobile “pick-to-light” system, using tested pick-to-light strategies in an innovative, low cost and highly flexible environment. “This system creates a bridge for customers who don’t yet have the volumes for our fully automated solutions but have a fast growing eCommerce channel.”
