Between mid-October and late January, distribution centers can ship over 200 billion parcels worldwide. To thrive during peak season, warehouse operations require both speed and accuracy. However, when it comes to manual data entry, speed and accuracy seem to be at odds as inventory management becomes more complex with moving assets and seasonal hires. Even with an average error rate of 1%, manual data entry can impact nearly 2 million orders processed during peak season. Enhancing inventory management, Symbology integrates both speed and accuracy into operational efficiency through intelligent hardware solutions.
Partnering with both Zebra Technologies and Ascent Solutions, Symbology utilizes the latest tools in minimizing inventory errors. Our warehousing specialists prioritize accuracy and speed by combining Salesforce’s cloud-based platform with Zebra’s productivity tools, ultimately:
- Streamlining operations through a versatile Android device
- Maximizing productivity with automated data capture
- Lessening costly errors associated with manual data entry
Why it Works
Typical manual data entry leaves you vulnerable to picking errors –such as pressing the wrong key– or illegible entries if conducted directly on paper. Further complications arise when data must be shared throughout the supply chain. Inaccurate or missing data slows down operations, impacting delivery times and customer satisfaction. To remediate this issue, Ascent Solutions utilizes Zebra mobile devices and barcode scanners to boost productivity with less data entry errors.
Take the first step in establishing accurate speed when you trade in your outdated scanners and mobile computers for cash rebates through the GO Zebra Trade-In Program. Upgrade devices produced by any manufacturers before December 31st, 2020 and experience the power of sustained speed and accuracy beyond peak season.
