PathGuide Technologies, a provider of warehouse management systems for wholesale and industrial distributors, has released the PathGuide Latitude 8.0 Slotting Optimization Module. This new slotting software allows small to mid-sized distributors to benefit from the increased pick productivity, improved warehouse safety, and maximized inventory efficiencies traditionally reserved for large-scale warehouse management installations. The slotting module is specifically designed for distributors that have a large quantity of SKUs or are continually changing inventory.
The Latitude Slotting Module identifies the most efficient location for inventory within the warehouse based on a number of product and storage characteristics, as well as product demand. By placing inventory in the most optimal locations in the facility, workers spend less time traveling the warehouse floor and can consolidate and fill orders more quickly and accurately. The slotting module also helps identify the safest, most ergonomically correct locations for inventory and can reduce the potential for injuries to workers.
The software's strategic placement of inventory within the warehouse can help a distributor maximize available space and reduce the amount of handling needed. Slotting can also reduce congestion within storage and picking areas by balancing the workload throughout the warehouse. Increased pick productivity and fewer picking errors also means faster delivery times and more accurate orders for customers.
The new slotting module is part of the PathGuide Latitude Warehouse Management System, which automates all operations, from receiving and order picking to manifesting and truck route/stop management. It integrates seamlessly with enterprise resource planning (ERP) business systems such as Microsoft Dynamics, Activant, J.D. Edwards, and Oracle.
