ORLANDO – RedPrairie Corporation, a productivity solutions provider, has announced a touch screen packing operations enhancement in the 2010.1 release of its Warehouse Management solution. The new functionality will allow for automated initiation, processing, and closeout of packages intended for shipment from a warehouse or distribution center.“In the past, handling inventory shortages, overages, and inaccuracies during the packing stage often required a great deal of time and effort to manage before shipment,” says Scott Zickert, RedPrairie Product Manager for Distribution Products. “For customers that desire an efficient and user-friendly pack process, RedPrairie’s new release includes features such as touch screen capabilities with large button layouts for enhanced usability, configurable alerts, blind and prompted modes, suppressed error handling, and easy diagnosis of problems.”
Further enhancements to the solution can help accelerate the packing operations process by simplifying the steps the user would perform to pack product from totes or locations into shippable containers. The solution will now provide access to certain pieces of information about a package.
