Allison's Pantry Insures Order Accuracy Utilizing Bar Code Verification System

Warehouse Mobile Solutions, a logistics solutions provider, is enabling Alison’s Pantry to pick by unique zones with its state-of-the-art tablet directed, barcode & order fulfillment solution. At its distribution center located in Pleasant Grove, Utah, Alison’s Pantry is utilizing the unique system features to direct and manage 10 tablet computers (iPads) mounted in a quick connect enclosure on the warehouse floor for product slotting, replenishment, picking, and order verification. Through the use of custom written applications (apps) developed specifically for warehouse and logistics companies, users are directed from location to location in a highly organized manner to replenish pick slots and pick orders to carts by scanning barcodes with a compact socket mobile scanner.

The Warehouse Mobile Solutions order fulfillment system is a first of its kind to be implemented as a fully integrated solution capable of simply receiving orders from the host computer system to initiate the picking process. Once received orders are divided into either freezer or ambient zones and released to individual operations within the distribution center for picking.

The Warehouse Mobile Solutions system installed at Alison’s Pantry incorporates six iPads for picking products in the ambient zone on the warehouse and four iPads for picking products in the freezer zone of the warehouse. The iPads utilized within the freezer are mounted in an innovative stainless steel heated enclosure utilizing a small battery with a quick disconnect system to power an innovative heating mechanism. This unique design allows operators to pick without the use of paper or cumbersome hand help mobile terminals. Operators simply scan items and locations as directed by the tablet computer, mounted to picking carts in a lockable stainless steel enclosure. The tablet computers are controlled wirelessly by a system manager, “Tablet Director”, which release orders, schedules operators activities, and tracks in-process orders throughout the entire order fulfillment process.
