Three Ways to Gain a Competitive Edge in E-commerce

There is good news for distribution and fulfillment (D&F) operations that are struggling to keep pace with exponential e-commerce pressures. For every major challenge that is straining resources — from labor and costly real estate space to throughput speed and order volume — there are innovative solutions which industry leaders are already adopting to stay nimble, profitable and competitive.

Groundbreaking software tools are among the fastest-growing trends in today’s e-commerce marketplace. At a time of historic worker scarcity and turnover, coupled with a need to make the most efficient use possible of space and equipment, software solutions are helping to deliver maximum performance from labor, equipment and integrated control systems.

To help you learn more about key developments that are changing the industry, we will cover some of the most prominent developments in software solutions in a three-part On The Move webinar series entitled Delivering the E-commerce Edge, to be held September 21, 23 and 28. Each session will feature industry experts in fields ranging from equipment utilization to labor management, answering some of the most common questions about today’s most pressing needs and challenges.

More Orders, Less Time With Enhanced AS/RS

Tuesday, September 21 at 2 p.m. EDT (11 a.m. PDT)

Modern D&F operations are adopting automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) shuttles to address a variety of e-commerce challenges — labor costs and shortages, maximizing the utilization of existing facilities and boosting throughput. While the impacts of an AS/RS are immediate, many operations lack the tools to effectively manage its complexities or maximize its benefits. This session will explore how advanced warehouse execution system (WES) software can precisely orchestrate storage and retrieval activities to increase the utilization, responsiveness and throughput of AS/RS shuttle and goods-to-person (GTP) systems.

Prepare for Tomorrow’s DC Staffing Today

Thursday, September 23 at 2 p.m. EDT (11 a.m. PDT)

Labor management software (LMS) has already proven its value in meeting many of the challenges associated with labor management, i.e., maximizing labor productivity and minimizing labor costs. Whether you are already using LMS or considering it as a solution for your labor challenges, this session will provide insights on the latest trends, plus preview the future of capacity planning capabilities.

Stop Counting Your Inventory and Start Managing It

Tuesday, September 28 at 2 p.m. EDT (11 a.m. PDT)

From the moment a warehouse receives a pallet of goods to the time when a product is shipped to a customer, multiple systems must work in concert. Unfortunately, many warehouses have built systems that struggle to communicate across functions, which limits upstream/downstream visibility and leads to inefficiencies.

This session will examine how integrating inventory control, labor and order fulfillment can work together to increase profits and grow your business. In particular, we will look at how a fully integrated warehouse can help you to overcome significant roadblocks when life throws your business a curveball.

You will also get a sneak peek at revolutionary capabilities that are just around the corner, plus the opportunity to ask Honeywell Intelligrated experts any questions you may have about which software solutions can deliver the strongest benefits to your unique business.

If you are ready to discover the software innovations that can offer your D&F business smart new solutions to growing labor and productivity pressures, register now for this webinar series.
