Original Press Release:
Fastpic5 Software Improves Storage Capacity in Existing Industrial Operations
In any storage and retrieval operation, space is a key factor when determining how well inventory is managed and productivity is approached. The new FastPic5 inventory management software from FastPic Systems provides tools for organizations to visually maximize space utilization while increasing accuracy and productivity in new or existing shelving, racks or automated systems.
The cube utilization feature of FastPic5 software creates a graphic representation of storage and retrieval system shelves and totes that allows users to visually re-arrange them to achieve optimum storage density, effectively allowing a maximum number SKUs to be stored in the unit.
Users can drag and drop totes onto virtual shelves to quickly determine the best storage mix, increasing the overall storage density of the unit and maximizing floor space utilization. The software also allows users to drill into a cell to specify its contents, reducing the time required for initial loading of the storage and retrieval system. Shelf and tote configurations can be easily copied when multiples of the same configurations are required for maximum storage and picking efficiency.
With the software's color mapping feature, users can graphically see the location of free space in the storage and retrieval unit, and re-configure shelves, totes and containers to take advantage of unused space. Unlike other software systems, Fastpic5 inventory management software can manage space in all three dimensions. By determining the available height, width and depth for stored items, users can visually see where the best location for each specific item should be.
Designed to provide total inventory management, FastPic5 software allows users to configure any combination of shelving and automated storage and retrieval systems to automatically increase storage density by placing stored items into "best fit" locations. The location feature of the FastPic inventory software can manage all shelves, totes, containers and their storage locations and is capable of maximizing every square inch of storage space available. As a result organizations can improve productivity and reduce put-away errors that cause order picking inaccuracies.
FastPic software provides complete inventory control for increased levels of productivity, inventory turns, picking accurate and inventory security. Seamless integration with automated storage and retrieval systems allows operators to enter or scan a part name, number or description into the system and have items automatically delivered. FastPic inventory software is designed to work independently or to be integrated into existing ERP, WMS or other host systems.
