How do you choose the right handheld to keep pace with AIDC?

Data capture technologies are well-entrenched in the warehouse and supply chain applications and more advanced Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) applications are changing the way we employ track-and-trace, order sorting, order fulfillment, shipping and receiving.

But with more business-side demand for digital transformation calling for warehouse management systems to also provide the data that will drive new capabilities in IoT (Internet of Things), Big Data and even AI, there will be further demands for technology convergence in the supply chain. 

Borrowing from similar DNA, there has been a lot of inspiration stemming from factory traceability solutions.

Today’s dynamic factory and materials handling workers need to be untethered to further keep pace with the higher velocity ecommerce business processes.

With the advent of better hardware solutions in wireless and mobile, reliable handheld or tablet computers continue to free the worker to roam the facility, acquiring and scanning more data in more formats than previously possible.  

However, designers will be tasked with finding worthy mobile PC devices to provide success to ultimately be measured in increased goods velocity and inventory turns.

Download this whitepaper and find out, from the supplier through to manufacturing, how AIDC will continue to offer more data possibilities that will advance AI and IoT development, allowing supply chain providers to introduce improved working processes that optimize and replace the old to bring about better economies of service.
