Do you ever need to see what's up with your Inventory but you are no where near a PC?

Take a look at how the "Cloud" could be doing your computing BETTER than your PC, and allowing you to use even a smart Phone or Ipad if you are no where near a PC! Read more.

Getting More 3PL Clients.

See how the IoT and automation is helping a small 3PL business in Colorado.

True story of how a small husband and wife team, dramatically improved their business.

From so small they believed they could only do paper based ordering and business, to a great success story for the "connected" business of today and the future.

Wifi for the entire warehouse.

Some links to walk you through the tricky stuff. We will be adding more of our own findings to this article soon.

Understanding RFID systems and if you need them

Here is an easy to understand demonstration of use, and comparison against a Barcode scanning alternative.

Read the RFID Article.

Almost any Business can benefit from IoT.

It can be as simple as lights coming on when people are moving into an area, and off with the leaving….with fans and AC or heat working in similar fashion.

From here, Productivity Intelligence can begin, and managment suddenly gets a much better sense of daily workflow.

If you had a Smart Warehouse, how would it talk to you when the need arose?.

With Wifi throughout the warehouse, or 4g/5G cell network, a Smart Phone or Ipad is fine for this. A PC is also fine, just don't feel you need to carry one around. With the new form of Warehouse Wifi, shelves, HI lifts, loading docks, automated conveyor work flow updates - everything can "talk" to the system. The system can continuously monitor work flows, and even alarm or react to certain levels with automated behaviors. Read More.

The Internet of Things(IoT),
the Power of Cloud Computing,
and what could Software as a Service(SaaS)
mean to your business.

How about verbally asking your Smart Phone to Report on any underutilized areas in your warehouse, or to generate a report. When the Phone comes back with the report a few moments later, it reads off a list to you of all the clients your system flagged as non-optimal - for their profitability, or for yours. This is where a sales call by you, to them, could create a better bottom line.

Early Adopter?

If you or a friend is an "Early Adopter", the development of the INTERNET OF THINGS is something you are hearing a buzz about....

Being "Connected" when you are NOT at your desk

The big question to us

What will this mean to businesses with warehouses and inventory management needs? There is a “kid in a toy store” interest to this, as we look at some of the new gizmos and technologies…and there is the “Actual Use” side, the hunt for “toys” that really work and that could make our business lives better.

With the Atheer Air Glasses, Warehouse professionals now have an optimized and streamlined work-flow to guide them through packing lists, and real time inventory management. Built-in cameras allow for quick and easy part identification and hands-free barcode scanning.
