Walk 65% less and save 30% costs

07 March 2024

WAREHOUSE OPERATIONS face complex challenges and conflicting objectives on a daily basis, including demand forecasting, inventory management, risk management and more, and achieving seamless, accurate order fulfilment can be a constant juggling act.

Picking is hugely influential in the warehouse, a fast accurate picking function will also impact packing and despatch so it’s a logical place to start.  In terms of automating your picking function, physical equipment such as follow me style robots are often a start point, or if budget allows, automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS). 

However, the latest intelligent software offers an alternative that allows pickers to walk 65% less and save 30% costs.

Orquestr8 Pick Optimisation is a cutting-edge software solution from Breathe Technologies designed to enhance the efficiency of order picking and streamline the entire packing and despatch process. Compatible with handheld and wearable devices such as Zebra and Proglove, this software analyses the warehouse layout, item locations, and the order list to determine the most efficient order allocation and route for picking goods.

While follow me style robots have been a popular choice for warehouse automation and deliver up to 25% productivity improvements, Orquestr8 Pick Optimisation offers an alternative for organisations without the large capital outlay by delivering:
    •    Less time spent walking between pick faces
    •    Improved user interaction at pick locations reducing the time required to scan and log a pick
    •    Minimal training for new users with its simple processes and clear user interface
    •    Integration with picking automation such as AMRs & AGVs
    •    Integration with handhelds and wearable

By combining the power of AI with seamless integration and real-time visibility, this software propels businesses towards greater productivity, reduced costs, and ultimately, heightened customer satisfaction.
