Traka has produced an animated video designed to highlight the solutions available for busy distribution centres such that their management teams can ensure they run like clockwork, in turn delivering goods on time and in full.
Pinpointing the key issues faced by distribution centres, and notably so when it comes to the management of hand-held devices, the two-minute clip outlines ways in which to save time, resources and money, while simultaneously allowing full visibility and traceability of assets at all times.
Lee Payne, market development manager for Traka UK, informed Security Matters: “Within any distribution centre it’s true to say that time is money, and particularly in the current environment. Teams are expected to meet strict deadlines throughout the day and night so that products can be processed correctly and efficiently and deliveries sent out.”
He added: “What this video demonstrates is how to ensure a distribution centre can always meet tight schedules. It doesn’t take a significant investment to make a difference. Simple technology updates such as the implementation of asset management lockers enable a smooth transition for team members who can immediately start their shifts with the equipment they need to operate.”
Included in the video is detail around how distribution centres can embrace the ideals of efficiency tools such as asset management to instantly optimise performance, control and monitor all physical processes and reduce the likelihood of human error.
There’s also a dedicated step-by-step process illustrating how easy Traka’s modular systems are to use for team workers and management alike. These systems are developed with dedicated fault-reporting, charging facilities, first-in, first-out device rotation and access control integration capability alongside a full suite of management tools.
Payne concluded: “With the addition of our asset management solutions, distribution centres could save an impressive 72,000 labour hours per year simply by resolving issues such as teams waiting to receive and return fully operational hand-held devices. This is a significant efficiency saving that allows distribution hub managers to focus their attentions on an opportunity to support the economy thanks to the swift delivery of product.”
