Dynamic Slotting

On the surface it seems simple: Use the most efficient product placement based on SKU velocity and picking productivity increases dramatically. Optimized slotting provides quick access to popular products, and reduces travel time for picking, putaway, and restocking. But for warehouses and distribution centers that lack agility, achieving optimum efficiency is always just out of reach.

The key is a dynamic slotting process that is responsive to changing products, customer demands, and slotting strategies. Driven by real-time data, QC Software’s Dynamic Slotting monitors and analyzes product demand, fulfillment productivity, production levels, and other shifting warehousing variables. Whether implemented across the entire warehouse, or confined to a specific island of inventory, QC Software’s self-correcting, parameter-based Dynamic Slotting solution optimizes warehouse space and product placement for the most efficient operation available. It’s that simple.

Features
  • May be implemented through entire warehouse or confined to selected locations or inventory
  • Scalable to meet your changing needs
  • Optimizes product placement based on demand & physical size
  • Slots for: floor space, shelves, racks, ASRs
  • Maintain more efficient levels of inventory

RF Scanning

Hand-held Radio Frequency (RF) scanners remain the workhorse of the industry. Since replacing manual, paper-based processes in the 1970s RF scanners have steadily evolved to keep pace with the needs of warehousing and distribution. Today RF is widely used through the integration with warehouse software, bar codes, and wireless networking. For many, scanning remains the most viable, reliable and cost-effective order fulfillment option. Now QC Software is taking RF technology to a whole new level.

With QC Software your scanner is more than just an order fulfillment tool. It is your bridge to the warehouse floor. The results are more accurate fulfillment, better tracking, faster replenishment, and tighter inventory control.
