Modernizing Your Warehouse with Mobile Solutions

As eCommerce continues to flourish, so does the demand for storage space. In fact, Amazon, the widely known retail giant, has already opened 100 new distribution centers in 2020, along with 75 fulfillment, sortation centers, regional air hubs, and delivery stations in the U.S. and Canada. The number of new facilities opening represents the undeniable continuation of eCommerce growth begs the question: What does the modern warehouse need to be productive? This blog will take a look at specific technologies and services that will ensure your warehouse operations are optimized and productivity stays at an all-time high.

Mobile Supply Chain Tech

Nothing says modern like mobile, and for the modern warehouse, this means mobile supply chain technology. With mobile technology, warehouses can empower workers to streamline common tasks and processes.

Barcode Scanners and Mobile Computing

Accurate and reliable barcode scanning is critical to understanding what’s in your warehouse and also for streamlining data capture. Look into options such as:
  • Wireless handheld, fixed mount, and mobile computers with integrated barcode scanners
  • Laser, linear imaging or 2D barcode scanning capabilities
  • Ruggedized devices designed to handle the most demanding environments

Mobile Computing

If you’re looking to optimize the performance of your supply chain, then mobile computing solutions are right for you. Consider mobile computing devices and accessories such as:
  • Mobile computers, ruggedized tablets, forklift (vehicle) mount computers, and mobile computer carts
  • Android and iOS-based mobile devices
  • Compact, lightweight, and ruggedized options to meet the unique needs of your environment

RFID Readers and Portals

RFID technology is being newly adopted every day, and would make a great addition to the modern warehouse. To see unparalleled improvement in business performance and return on investment, look to solutions like:
  • Wireless and fixed mount RFID readers
  • RFID scanners that can read both Active and Passive RFID
  • Low Frequency (LF), High Frequency (HF) and Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) bands

Enterprise Printing Solutions

If you’re looking to optimize the performance of your supply chain, then mobile computing solutions are right for you. Consider mobile computing devices and accessories such as:
  • Printing solutions, Mobile printing carts
  • Printer applicators
  • Managed Print services

Access Unparalleled Automation with fixed scanning and machine vision solutions

In order to keep the pace with increased demand, the modern warehouse should leverage technology automation. By freeing warehouse workers from tedious, manual tasks, warehouse managers can dedicate labor to more complex, mission-critical initiatives. By implementing automation throughout the warehouse, managers can expect:
  • An increase in productivity without human intervention
  • Reduced worker fatigue and stress
  • Increased accuracy and lower operating costs
  • Reduction or elimination of labor costs
In the same vein as automation is machine vision, which brings greater efficiency and reliability to the barcode reading process. Designed to reflect human sight and perception, this learning technology will remove limitations of more traditional equipment and technologies, resulting in increased speed, fewer errors, and considerable cost savings. Some machine vision applications include:
  • Control of inbound and outbound logistics
  • Pallet scanning
  • Print and apply labeling
  • Automated pick and pack sorting
  • Inventory categorization
  • Package tracking
  • Goods to Person (GTP)
  • Voice picking

Superior IT Services and Software

The modern warehouse won’t stay productive for long without the right maintenance and service programs in place. That’s why partnering with an organization that can provide IT services for large, enterprise-wide device deployments is crucial. IT services such as printer repair, mobile computer repair, wireless site survey, OS migration, managed mobility services, and managed print services are all ways you can ensure that your IT doesn’t interfere with workforce productivity.

In addition to maintenance and services, choosing software applications from industry-leading software developers will maximize the performance of your warehouse, fulfillment center, or third-party logistics (3PL) operations. Look to software such as:

  • RFID software
  • Warehouse management systems
  • Mobile Device Management (MDM) software
  • Delivery/Logistic software
  • Shipping software

Peak-Ryzex is now
Peak Technologies

The last few months have been incredibly exciting for our organization.  In early April, we changed ownership to Sole Source Capital, an experienced private equity company focused on the industrial services market and committed to our growth. With Sole Source’s support, we have added tremendous capabilities, resources, and industry expertise to the Peak portfolio through the acquisition of three companies in the last 60 days. 

Along with these exciting developments comes a renewed sense of commitment and purpose. To celebrate this exciting new chapter, we wanted to use this opportunity to reflect on our past, while looking forward to the future.  We are extremely pleased to announce that we have changed our company name to Peak Technologies, Inc. 

For many of our long-time customers, this is a return to the company name that had been in place since our founding in 1981.  When we merged with Ryzex in 2011, we combined our names to symbolize the union of two industry leaders.  But over the last few years, we have become ONE Peak, added additional capabilities, battled through a pandemic together, and feel that the time is now to re-brand the company as we look forward to the future.
