Goods-to-person order fulfillment has come a long way over the years. We've watched it evolve since fulfillment first became automated for catalog sales back in the 1980s. Since then, we have experienced the rapid growth of e-commerce and a whole new set of customer expectations.
Today, we are seeing evolutionary progression in goods-to-person fulfillment technology, and it's increasingly become one of the best ways your operation can gain a competitive advantage. Just download our latest paper to find out for yourself. The Evolution of Goods-to-Person Order Fulfillment: How to Meet Distribution Challenges in the Age of E-commerce explores why and how today's new fulfillment systems offer more compact design, faster operation, and provide a much higher level of flexibility.
The paper reveals the top eight critical advantages of today's improved systems:
- Operator Productivity
- Space Reduction
- Improved Operations
I can't reveal all the secrets here, so to find out the other four important benefits, read the full paper.
I'm interested to hear what you think and how new technologies are working for you. How has goods-to-person order fulfillment evolved in our own operations? Let me know in the comments or tweet me @jimtompkins.
