What You Will Learn

North American companies are facing the pressures with labor, increasing operating costs, a faster pace of business, higher tracking & accuracy demands, and the need for more unique individual picking. Beyond typical analysis points such as CapEx and OpEx, even the most basic solutions—such as PickCarts—are part of a deeper conversation on how to develop a through and holistic assessment of automation options. While many different and affordable technologies are available to help operations of all sizes implement automation with quick ROIs, most managers are unaware of the available options and the new technologies coming down the pike. As consumers demand faster delivery times, e-commerce sales volume grows, the omni-channel distribution environment expands, the number of SKUs increase, and the demand for custom/unique manufacturing increases, organizations need flexible, easy-to-implement, modular, user-friendly systems that can help them overcome these and other challenges.
 

Key Takeaways

• How can automation help your organization meet the increasing demands of today’s business environment.
• Dangers of layering new technologies on top of current operations and inefficient processes.
