Warehouse Mobile Solutions, makers of WarehouseOS, helped increase accuracy and fulfillment rates at Enlinx, a 3PL (third party logistics) company. The case study was profiled in A&D Magazine.
David Burns, CEO of Enlinx, shared the importance of perfect delivery. The 3PLs (third party logistics) perfect shipping is vital as manufacturers expect thousands of orders fulfilled everyday are accurate, delivered on time, and all involve have transparency throughout the process.
Like many 3PLs experiencing rapid on-line growth of their customers, Enlinx enlisted WarehouseOS solution. Before WarehouseOS the company was using a method called “Pick and Pass.” The box was moved to the pick location via conveyor, once it reached designated zone a picker would scan label and be directed to the pick location to make pick and deliver to the box. While this method worked well for certain clients, Burns reported, “We found it to be very difficult to be efficient and accurate with clients using large SKU counts and items that might look similar but only different in size like ‘Small, Medium and Large.’”
Burns noted, “We found it easier at the pack station to sort order by box size so that the pack station didn’t have to be stocked with multiple boxes. The accuracy improved greatly as we scanned each item into the box before sealing and labeling the box.”

The RF gun, constant verifications, small keypads, and hard to read screens are quickly becoming yesterday’s technology. Tablets are replacing the RF gun. WarehouseOS (www.warehousemobilesolutions.com), a new tablet-based Warehouse Operations System brings warehouses into the future today. Warehouse management systems have been around for a long time with too many companies still using the RF gun to conduct inventory management, scan in new items, and pick orders. The RF gun solutions typically cost double what modern solutions offer. WarehouseOS and associated apps have been developed to make everything about the warehouse easier and better. Apps allow small or large companies to receive products, manage inventory, perform cycle counting, conduct single picks or do batch picking, verify items picked and pack them into boxes.
An easy to navigate user interface means warehouse personnel need almost no training before performing warehouse tasks. Receiving, put-away, picking, and packaging quickly become the easiest jobs on the floor. A team of experts in material handling equipment and solutions developed WarehouseOS to maximize the throughput of warehousing and distributing facilities. From small eCommerce, to high volume SKU facilities, from omni-channel companies to FMCG (fast moving consumer goods), WarehouseOS is equipped to handle everything. From small startups with simple needs to complex, large distribution centers, WarehouseOS is the tablet solution which enables manufacturers and distribution centers to be a step ahead of the competition.
