For wholesalers, even the most organized warehouse is a source of cost and inefficiencies, ranging from basic overhead and energy costs to paper-based processes that can lead to errors. Fortunately, new IT capabilities are helping to make warehouses intelligent, interconnected and instrumented to enable smarter operations. By integrating business processes with technologies such as voice recognition, RFID and motion-sensitive automation, the warehouse is shedding both costs and inefficiencies. And by putting their warehouses in order, wholesalers are discovering that leaner operations can be greener as well. The results? From reducing charge-backs to reducing paper, an automated warehouse provides new competitive capabilities and higher customer satisfaction for wholesalers.
