It can be deployed as a stand-alone solution or combined with other picking technologies. Easily integrated with existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) and warehouse management system (WMS) software, the cart’s software is fully customizable. The software runs on any Windows-based computer, using standard wireless network protocols. It does not require dedicated servers or complex network infrastructure.”
Rodrigues commented, “Additionally, our control software includes a navigation view that shows each cart’s location on a graphical, overhead schematic of a warehouse, or picking zone—however management wants to configure the cart system. The hardware can be applied to as many different cart configurations and sizes as required, either in new installations or as a retrofit to an existing cart fleet.”
