Advanced Scanning Enhances Warehouse Efficiency

New Study Highlights Need for Advanced Scanning Capabilities | ProGlove

In the fast-paced world of warehousing and logistics, organizations face mounting challenges. From handling surging order volumes to meeting consumer expectations for lightning-fast shipping, the pressure is on. Let’s delve into how Advanced Scanning can help transform warehouse operations and drive success.

On-Time Shipments and Speed

Warehouses struggle with the demand for fast shipping, especially during peak seasons such as the holidays. This creates additional pressure that often leads to errors. But errors are the last thing companies want. Especially as e-commerce has raised consumer expectations. This makes reliable order fulfillment a top priority, as the next supplier may be just a click away. But how can companies meet these challenges with Advanced Scanning?

Prioritizing on-time shipments not only satisfies customers, but also increases overall profitability. But there is more to warehouse operations, including the perfect order rate. As warehouse operations become more complex, companies are looking to optimize their POR as a critical performance metric.

However, achieving a high rate of order accuracy requires a focus on two key factors: scanning speed and accuracy and error prevention. Efficient barcode scanning ensures accurate data capture. This not only saves time, but also minimizes order processing errors. Advanced Scanning can help.

At the end of the day, companies with stellar perfect order rates reap several benefits: They reduce inventory levels, they benefit from shorter cash-to-cash cycle times and they have fewer stockouts compared to competitors.

Advanced Scanning Includes Continuous Scanning and Multiscan

But how can ProGlove’s  Advanced Scanning feature help address the above challenges? Well, first of all, Advanced Scanning comes with two scanning modes to choose from for multiple barcode scanning. The first scanning mode is Multiscan for improved accuracy with control and precision to scanning multi-barcode labels. Here’s how it works: Users can fine-tune their scanning process by adding filters. Whether it’s excluding certain barcodes or prioritizing certain barcodes, Multiscan adapts to their workflow.

This includes rule Implementation: There is no need for complex system customization. Multiscan allows users to set rules—defining how barcodes should be handled. In addition, Multiscan’s algorithms intelligently organize scanned barcodes, ensuring seamless integration with your WMS/ERP.

Finally, Multiscan eliminates the risk of accidentally scanning the wrong bar code. Users pre-set the order in which barcodes are transmitted, eliminating mix-ups and saving valuable time.

But this scanning mode is only one of two scanning modes from ProGlove’s Advanced Scanning feature. Continuous Scanning is the other scanning mode of choice. This is where speed meets efficiency, because when volume matters, Continuous Scanning kicks in to capture more, faster. When operators hold the trigger and hover over multiple barcodes, Continuous Scanning captures up to ten barcodes in a single scan. This is perfect for high throughput environments. It’s especially useful when barcode sequence isn’t critical. With Continuous Scanning mode, workers can collect data quickly without worrying about strict order.

In today’s fast-paced business environment, optimizing warehouse operations is critical for companies looking to stay ahead. Whether it’s streamlining inventory management or improving order fulfillment, every second counts. That’s where ProGlove’s innovative scanning solutions come into play.
