Mobile technology in the supply chain in engaged in a race to meet customer demands for speed and efficiency. In some cases, it might even be outpacing them.
Mobile technology has played a key role in supply-chain management, particularly in the warehouse, for decades. But today’s mobile devices and systems are far advanced from those of the past. They incorporate such innovations as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. They take multiple forms, including barcode scanners, smartphones, wearables, tablets and rugged laptops. On this episode, we discuss the state of the art of mobile tech with Jim Dempsey, director of the Android technologies group with Panasonic. He’ll discuss the many options that the technology offers today, how it’s impacting the role of human workers in the supply chain, and how companies should evaluate the ever-expanding world of mobility options. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Executive Editor of SupplyChainBrain.
