Software to Further Enhance the Process
Outsource Equipment Company offers a suite of warehouse management system software designed to meet the various operational requirements in a large variety of picking and order-fulfillment scenarios. We can combine the available modules into a package that is tailored to your specific application:
- Warehouse Execution System (WES) Software – optimizes labor and equipment in the warehouseModula software
- PowerPick – manages split-case order picking
- Direct Pick – manages order picking through pick-to-light, voice picking or RF picking
- AutoPick – manages your automated storage and retrieval systems, like automatic inserter/extractors and stacker cranes
- AutoRoute – tracks your orders throughout your material-handling system from just one interface
What’s more, a Digital Display Message Center can be seamlessly integrated into the carousel’s access opening area on any POWERdepot. The message center provides operator prompting from the carousel’s onboard controls platform by communicating with the client’s host network through the software.
Operating messaging can include, but is not limited to, displays of part numbers, quantity to pick, location within the carrier and notes about the items being picked. The messaging helps to ensure an efficient and accurate picking environment, and adds to the overall usefulness of the carousel system and your warehouse execution system.
