Wynright Introduces Tracking Tool for Returned Inventory in D.C.s

Wynright Corp., a vendor of intelligent material-handling systems, has introduced Visual Sort, a tool that allows for the tracking and restocking of returned inventory in distribution centers.

It operates through a touchscreen, scanner and network connection, requiring minimal training of workers, according to the company. Once inventory is scanned into the system, Visual Sort shows on the screen the bin into which returned products should be placed. The data can be automatically fed back into any warehouse-management system. Visual Sort is customizable; it can be used for returned inventory in both retail and manufacturing markets. For example, said Wynright, a manufacturer could use the system to help sort distressed returns, and to combine the putting or sorting of products to discrete orders in a two-bay system based on a bill of materials.
