Warehouse productivity and effectiveness is greatly affected by warehouse labels and signs. If the labels and signs are outdated or worn, they can’t be properly read or scanned. This means it takes longer to properly stock the shelves or fill orders. And with how quickly technology advances, it is possible to not even realize it’s time for an upgrade. When is the last time your ERP/WMS was updated?

Over the past few decades, technology has continually advanced. Online shopping demand has also steadily increased over time, especially in today’s ecommerce times. This could also mean you are expanding your current warehouse or building a new one. Getting everything done right the first time, and quickly, could increase your productivity.

Upgraded Technology

Warehouse operations can already be a detailed process with checking inventory, restocking items, and then packaging items for shipment. If the labels and signs in the warehouse are outdated and worn out, it will decrease productivity and visibility of where items are or are to be placed. The same could be said for those racks where labels have been half removed to place new labels on top. The new labels most likely don’t stick very well.

Perhaps you are wanting to implement new mobile terminals, scanners, or barcoding. If the labels and signs are not up to date, the new hardware may not be able to read it. Upgrading technology in your warehouse improves inventory measures and increases order processing and picking times. Incorporating the labels and signs into the upgrade increases real time visibility and scanning capability.

Incorporating ERP and WMS

If your facility is moving to a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system or a Warehouse Management System (WMS), the new software systems require new labels and signs to match the technological functionality of the software systems. When you upgrade your ERP and WMS, you get improved inventory tracking, faster order processing and picking, and real time visibility.

New Warehouse & Expansion

Is it time to expand your existing warehouse or even build a new one? Omnichannel shopping and enhanced technology has increased the demands on warehouses. The new warehouse or the expanded section has to match the other facility. And opening a new facility requires everything to be installed, from racks and terminals to wireless networks and printers and beyond. Hiring a specialist can ensure that everything is installed right the first time.

Time To Start Planning

Increase your warehouse efficiency by replacing the word and outdated labels and signs. Which, if they are outdated, it may be time to see if your technology is out of date as well. And if you have already reached that point and are upgrading or installing ERP/WMS systems, it is easier to ensure everything is done right the first time by contracting your installations with our specialists.
