“The future is now – smarten up your business” – this was the slogan used by Kardex Remstar to present its concepts for smart production logistics. Part of the solution involves new, Web-based apps which include all the functionalities found in the Power Pick Global warehouse management software developed by Kardex Remstar. The system is an efficient and user-friendly software solution for managing inventories and for controlling the associated storage and retrieval orders. It is highly flexible and covers a wide range of application fields from production to distribution logistics.
The control software can be used in conjunction with Kardex Remstar’s dynamic storage systems, but also with simpler storage units, such as flow racks. It helps customers to use their storage systems more efficiently, whether in a stand-alone set-up or as part of an interconnected network of units. Besides its performance-related features, the program has also been designed to be simple to use, with particular attention paid to the intuitive operation of the software.
Hence the newly developed apps, which give order pickers, warehouse staff, or administrators the applications they need for managing and controlling the storage process no matter where they happen to be. For instance, storage units can be accessed via Wi-Fi using a tablet computer. In addition, storage and retrieval processes can be managed, stock levels checked, or reports and statistics generated. In short, the entire range of software applications is available to the mobile user of this solution after password-protected login. Furthermore, the apps can be upgraded any number of times and configured in line with customer requirements. Special programs are also no problem. As such, customer-specific functionalities found on bar code scanners or cameras, for instance, can be easily incorporated in the apps.
