The company had a massive warehouse in Indiana. They had just installed a new flow rack, which they hoped would allow items to get from the warehouse floor to the trucks. In order to take full advantage of the new flow rack, they needed a better way to communicate with the people in the warehouse to efficiently get items from the warehouse, to the flow rack, and then to load the items onto the trucks.
Company was feeling the pressure of downward pricing in the marketplace. They needed to reduce costs to remain competitive. The entire manufacturing, importing and shipping process needed to flow smoothly in order to reduce costs. By implementing the new scanner system in the warehouse, the process became rhythmic and held all the way through shipping. They were able to forecast demand against their current supply more effectively and keep up with the market demands in a cost efficient manner.
