FKI LOGISTEX REAL TIME SOLUTIONS EASYpick ADVANCED PICK-TO-LIGHT TECHNOLOGY DELIVERS RAPID ORDER PROCESSING, EASY INTEGRATION
Order-filling system increases productivity, improves accuracy for warehouses and DCs
(Emeryville, CA: March 03, 2004) Real Time Solutions(TM) (www.picktolight.com), an FKI Logistex® member company and leading single-point supplier of integrated material handling solutions for distribution, baggage handling, freight, parcel, and manufacturing applications, presents the innovative EASYpick® pick-to-light system-a streamlined, efficient and cost-effective method for simplifying order fulfillment in warehouses and distribution centers. Employing a state-of-the-art, paperless, light-directed technology, EASYpick maximizes productivity, speed and accuracy in the order-picking process. The technology is currently installed at more than 300 facilities across North America, South America, and Europe.
EASYpick minimizes the time spent by order pickers searching for products and walking to pick locations. Using a system of light units, EASYpick directs pickers to each pick location. The light units are combined with easy-to-read LED counters that tell pickers the correct quantity to pick. This high-accuracy system boosts productivity by reducing missed and inaccurate picks. It also produces labor savings by enabling higher throughputs per man-hour.
EASYpick supports operations with or without bar codes. The system is compatible with tethered or RF scanning; offers multiple hardware display options; and integrates with a variety of order filling systems, including automated sorters and conveyors. When combined with a company's warehouse management software (WMS), EASYpick helps balance work loads during peak times, smoothing work flow and ensuring optimum labor allocation.
EASYpick includes advanced software management tools and reports for work distribution planning within an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI). For operations requiring pack lists and manifests, EASYpick automatically generates these documents.
Customizable to fit each application's exact needs with minimal re-engineering of existing systems required, EASYpick easily integrates with mobile picking carts, storage and staging systems, flow racks, carousels, and vertical lift modules (VLMs). It can also be outfitted with the EASYpick Voice module for hands-free, voice-directed operations. Robust and flexible, EASYpick is suited for nearly any distribution center or warehouse application, from kitting to catalog fulfillment.
"Warehouses and DC operations can achieve dramatic productivity increases by integrating EASYpick into their picking process," said Stephen Legg, president of FKI Logistex Real Time Solutions. "EASYpick is an intelligent, reliable, and cost-effective order filling solution that is easy to install, integrate, and use. It will give you a measurable, positive ROI in a short period of time."
