The Evolution of Warehouse Operations
There has been a significant shift over the last decade with respect to demand fulfillment. As consumers, we’ve become less patient and not willing to wait more than a couple of days to receive an order or pay more than we must when there are so many options available to us. This on-demand economy has caused a change in the way organizations manage workflows in order to satisfy customer need and provide an outstanding experience.
From people to processes, the challenge is on to build work teams and workflows that allow us to increase capacity, improve productivity and collect as much data as possible to remain ahead of the competition. At Barcom, we accept that challenge by working with technology leaders who focus on ways to bring technology into the workforce and make tasks less fatiguing, processes more accurate, and data easier to collect.

Their most recent efforts to make the connection between workers and devices with end-to-end solutions has allowed thousands of organizations to make better decisions, operate with near perfect accuracy and put the customer front and center with experiences that keep them coming back.
Solutions that empower employees are going to make workers better at what they do, improve morale and motivate them to provide an outstanding customer experience. Zebra helps make this happen by providing purpose-driven technology to the market. This includes:
