What You Will Learn

The mobile technology landscape of the average DC is being transformed as DCs adopt smartphones, tablets and other new wearable computers both for hands-on tasks like picking, as well as for mobile management apps. Meanwhile, the lines between RF and voice-directed mobile applications have blurred, and new data capture (RFID and NFC) and location awareness technologies are entering the mainstream. This represents a mobile revolution that is helping DCs get better results and address new challenges in hiring, training and retaining workers.

Key Takeaways

• How RF, voice and new data capture technologies have merged to create multi-modal warehouse applications for receiving, picking and other warehouse tasks.
• How and why DCs are adopting tablets and smartphones and how the new form-factors stack up to traditional warehouse bricks and vehicle mounts.
