Synergy-owned warehouse management system (WMS) software developers SnapFulfil has announced plans to improve its WMS user experience in 2020. This includes adding the ability to quickly on-board temporary employees during peak seasons.
In addition SnapFulfil is in the final stages of developing an autonomous warehouse robot called SnapCart, and this is due for launch this year.
One of the expected changes in demand in 2020 is that warehouse managers will want much more data during the fulfilment process so they can get baseline data and seek efficiencies.
SnapFulfil MD Tony Dobson said, “Our experience tells us that having a WMS that provides easily accessible information data to employees is paramount to improving efficiencies warehouse-wide.
Apart from facilitating much more educated decisions, it also eliminates costly, onerous and time-intensive paper-based processes in the warehouse, giving employees more quality time and flexibility to streamline procedures.”
The SnapCart is in the final stages of development. Running on a cellular picking model, it keeps pickers within a set zone and sends robots carrying containers of SKUs to them so they can pick the items. According to the company this will reduce warehouse staffs’ strain and improves accuracy and efficiency.
