New ownership energizes America's leading order fulfillment brand, which includes light, voice, RF and cart picking supported by powerful software
(Cincinnati: February 2, 2010) Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a leading American-owned automated material handling solutions provider, announces the re-launch of the Real Time Solutions® order fulfillment system as part of the company's expanded product portfolio. The comprehensive suite includes pick-to-light, pick-to-voice, pick-to-cart, RF picking and order fulfillment software.
Intelligrated acquired Real Time Solutions through its purchase of FKI Logistex® in 2009 and now supports over 300 system installations in North America. Ideal for warehousing, fulfillment and DC environments, Real Time Solutions order fulfillment systems are designed to incorporate customer-driven workflows and picking technologies to improve customer satisfaction through efficient and accurate order filling.
"The complete Real Time Solutions suite is an intelligent, reliable and cost-effective order filling solution that is easy to install, integrate and use," said Jerry Koch, director of product management, Intelligrated. "Order picking is not always one-size-fits-all. Intelligrated can determine the ideal mix of picking technologies that gives our customers a greater productivity and measurable, positive ROI in a short period of time."
The Real Time Solutions order fulfillment line includes:
Real Time Solutions Pick-to-Light- Pick-to-light technology features bright lights, LED displays and flashing indicators to draw the attention of the order filler and provides direction to the correct pick locations and pick quantities. Real Time Solutions Pick-to-Light maximizes productivity, speed and accuracy, and allows for flexible workflows.
Real Time Solutions Voice - Voice picking technology eliminates many of the inefficiencies associated with paper pick lists, providing clear and concise voice commands via a wireless network. Proven voice recognition technology is combined with highly personalized user profiles, including multiple languages, to ensure hands-free operation and simplified training. Real Time Solutions Voice increases picking velocity, accuracy rates and overall order fulfillment productivity.
Real Time Solutions GoKart - A mobile, paperless picking solution, GoKarts allow for batch or cluster picking of items that traditionally slow picking processes and cause errors. Combining advanced Real Time Solutions pick-to-light components, wireless local area network capabilities and RF scanners, GoKarts are a cost-effective solution to eliminate the need for long and unproductive walks to pick low velocity items from distant breakpack picking areas.
Real Time Solutions Order Fulfillment Software - This proven, reliable software achieves over 99% order accuracy and facilitates simultaneous use of multiple order picking technologies within a DC, providing control and coordination of the entire Real Time Solutions product line. Real Time Solutions order fulfillment software is designed to balance and manage order fulfillment processes, fully integrating with warehouse management systems (WMS), enterprise resource planning systems (ERP), and legacy systems to provide a seamless solution that offers powerful visibility, supervisory and diagnostic tools.
This comprehensive order fulfillment suite features a broad range of integrated solutions, enabling customers to use multiple picking methodologies and a range of picking styles such as discrete, batch, pick-and-pass and put distribution. Real Time Solutions software tools work across multiple order fulfillment technologies to plan the amount and application of labor, providing the ability to monitor productivity and make adjustments based on real-time operations.
With flexible features such as dynamic zone sizes and cluster picking of multiple orders, Real Time Solutions order fulfillment systems can be tailored to fit any operation. To drive increased accuracy and productivity, workflows can be configured to meet customer business processes, such as inventory exception handling including shorts, overpicks, holding orders and triggering replenishment. Value-added processes such as cycle counting, replenishment, price ticketing, label printing and print-and-apply requirements can also be incorporated into the workflows.
