SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, January 16, 2015 -- WarehouseOS™, or “WOS", completed its installation for the newest release of its tablet directed, barcode/order fulfillment solution. The system is now operational at CampSaver’s retail store and eCommerce fulfillment center located in Nibley, Utah. It will be the first application utilizing the latest version of WOS, Version 2.0, fully integrated with Monsoon Stone Edge eCommerce Order Management Software.
Consider implementing a new software system for inventory management and order fulfillment a month prior to your busiest season of the year: Black Friday - Christmas. With CampSaver’s rapid sales growth and product expansion it became critical to increase inventory capacities. The option: expand to an outside facility or find a software product enabling them to maximize storage by combining different items in the same bin location. The implementation of WOS made this possible as items can now be stored in any location by warehouse personnel, even if there is already a different item in the bin! In addition, actual images of each product are displayed on the tablet screen so pickers can clearly identify the correct product. The need to quickly manage inbound purchase orders and inventory for their on-premise retail store with a simple and affordable software solution forced them to move from their current barcode tracking system.
The integration with Monsoon Stone Edge enables CampSaver to distribute eCommerce orders directly to warehouse personnel for highly efficient order fulfillment and extremely accurate inventory management. As a result of this fully integrated solution, CampSaver has eliminated the need to expand its warehouse and can rapidly fulfill orders by picking with full product visualization. For those within the Stone Edge User Community desiring to achieve reduced order fulfillment cost and the benefits of inventory visualization, it can now be accomplished with WOS. The integration to the Stone Edge software was done at CampSaver utilizing the powerful API’s of the WOS software which can be seamlessly integrated into your facility in about a week.
With this fully integrated solution orders are received and managed through Stone Edge and then passed to WOS which directs and manages tablet devices (iPads). The tablets are mounted in a quick-connect, light weight enclosure, swappable between the mobile picking carts on the warehouse floor for receiving, product put-away, replenishment, picking, and order verification. A unique feature of the system is the capability to assign different levels of inventory availability to products as well as locations, keeping warehouse personnel from being sent to the on-premise store to fill customer orders when inventory is still available in the warehouse. The need for this feature, which had been unavailable to CampSaver in the past, resulted in developing workarounds to meet their requirements and keep inventory on the retail store shelves.
The WOS system implemented for CampSaver incorporates 10 iPads mounted in our New Lite injection molded enclosures utilizing a quick disconnect system and 10 mobile picking carts, each equipped with a swivel bracket designed to accept the iPad Lite enclosures. This unique design allows operators to store and pick products without the use of paper or cumbersome hand-held mobile terminals. Operators simply scan items and locations as directed by the mounted tablet devices. The tablets are controlled wirelessly by a system manager, Tablet DirectorTM, which releases orders, schedules operators' activities, and tracks in-process orders throughout the entire order fulfillment process.
