TouchPath Extends WMS System With 'Power-Picking' Control Center

Supply chain solutions provider TouchPath is extending its TouchWMS warehouse management system with the addition of a "power picking" control center, the technology company has announced. The first TouchWMS Control Centre user - an unnamed international components manufacturer - reports early pick productivity increases of up to 50 percent as a result, according to TouchPath.

The TouchWMS Control Centre is a management tool that enables specific picks to be assigned to specific pickers, TouchPath says. It removes the need for pick notes by presenting assigned picks to warehouse operatives on-screen via mobile terminals, then tracks the status of each pick in real-time, measuring picker performance by individual and by team.

TouchPath says it adopts a tailored approach to user needs. “You set the rules and we build your WMS around them — one that fits your needs and conforms to your business,” says TouchPath International CEO David Myers. “TouchPath uses smart, flexible modules that can be bolted together in almost any combination to deliver a customized solution at an off-the-shelf price.”

TouchWMS is multilingual and currently supports 11 languages, the provider says. It has the functionality to support the full range of warehouse processes, from goods receipt, guided put-away, task management, stock allocation and multi-zone wave picking, single order pick and pack or bulk order picking. Other processes that can be supported include automatic replenishment, load management, the generation of multi-lingual dispatch notes and pallet manifests, plus integration with several carrier consignment systems.

TouchWMS can run standalone or integrated with all mainstream ERP and other supply chain and legacy systems.
