As more supply chains are increasingly driven by technology, many organizations are investigating the benefits of an automated warehouse. Warehouse automation can make your operations far more accurate, productive and responsive, however, it is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. In fact, it’s a far cry from a system that you can simply buy, plug in and watch the magic happen. But as the old saying goes, “Nothing worth having comes easy.”
If automation is something you are considering for your warehouse, you will need to do some careful research and planning to make sure you’re making the right decision. All this hard work will help make the transition to automation as smooth as possible for your business.
When warehouse automation is done right, teams have less of a “thank goodness it’s over, get me out of here” attitude. At Tecsys, we have seen organizations take more of a “that was fantastic, we’ve learned so much, what’s next” approach to a project. A less appreciated aspect of warehouse automation is that on-the-warehouse-floor workers tend to feel a sense of pride that they are working in a more modern, higher-performing facility. There are fewer errors, less blame, more productivity and a sense of progress. Don’t underestimate the value of those feelings on retention and additional gains in productivity and attention to detail. Through a sense of shared responsibility, a warehouse automation project can give your company and staff the opportunity to thrive.
