PathGuide Technologies Brings Slotting to Small and Midsized Distributors for Increased Pick Productivity and Greater Profitability
New Module Expands Functionality of Latitude 8.0 Warehouse Management System
PathGuide Technologies, a leading provider of warehouse management systems for wholesale and industrial distributors, today announced the availability of the PathGuide Latitude 8.0 Slotting Module. The new Slotting Module allows small to midsized distributors to benefit from the increased pick productivity, improved warehouse safety, and maximized inventory efficiencies traditionally reserved for large-scale warehouse management installations.
"Due to cost and complexity, the benefits of slotting have traditionally been out of the reach of smaller distributors," said Eric Allais, CEO of PathGuide Technologies. "Our Latitude Slotting Module is specifically designed for small to midsized distributors that have a large quantity of SKUs or are continually changing inventory."
The Latitude Slotting Module identifies the most efficient location for inventory within the warehouse based on a number of product and storage characteristics, as well as product demand. The Latitude Slotting Module is designed to deliver the following benefits:
* Increased Pick Productivity -- By placing inventory in the most optimal location in the warehouse, workers spend less time traveling the warehouse floor, can consolidate orders more easily, and fulfill the orders more quickly and accurately.
* Improved Warehouse Safety -- The slotting module helps identify the safest, most ergonomically correct locations for inventory and can reduce the potential for injuries to workers.
* Maximized Inventory Space -- Slotting's strategic placement of inventory within the warehouse helps a distributor maximize available space and reduce the amount of time a SKU is handled. Slotting can also reduce congestion within the warehouse by balancing the workload throughout the warehouse.
* Improved Customer Service -- Increased pick productivity and fewer picking errors (as a result of storing similar items together) means faster delivery times and more accurate orders for customers.
The PathGuide Latitude Warehouse Management System is a modular software suite that automates warehousing and distribution to provide real-time online information about all inventories. Latitude automates all operations from receiving and order picking to manifesting and truck route/stop management. It integrates seamlessly with ERP business systems such as Microsoft Dynamics, Activant, J.D. Edwards and Oracle. Latitude is designed to help industrial distributors pick, pack and ship orders faster and more accurately, resulting in greater productivity and profitability.
The Latitude 8.0 Slotting Module is available immediately from PathGuide Technologies. For more information, including pricing, contact PathGuide Technologies at www.pathguide.com or call toll free 888-627-9797.
