What You Will Learn:

The supply chain of the 21st century is becoming more complex, and as recalls across all industries become more common, this trend toward complexity isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Warehousing is no longer the simple concept it once was. From receiving and sortation, to picking and put-away, to shipping and delivery—the entire system is revolutionizing in order to accommodate customers’ wants and needs. To stay on top of customer demands and industry standards, plant and warehouse managers need to implement scalable visibility solutions that provide access to critical data at every point in the supply chain.

But not all warehouses are the same. In fact, hardly any are. There are significant differences across warehouse operations in the various segments of the supply chain. However, no matter where your plant or warehouse fits into the supply chain, visibility solutions exist to help you improve business outcomes across all fronts.

Zebra Technologies is recognized as one of the top manufacturers of Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) technology. Lowry Solutions is a leading systems integrator with extensive experience using AIDC technologies to solve unique business challenges—including improved warehouse visibility. Together, Zebra and Lowry are here to provide you with leading insight into the trends and solutions that are influencing the evolution of the modern warehouse.

Using Zebra’s innovative technology, you’ll be able to see how Lowry Solutions can implement plant and warehouse visibility solutions based on your company’s individual challenges. Using RFID, barcode, and wireless technology, Lowry will develop tailored solutions to help you:

  • Optimize storage and distribution network growth.
  • Decrease labor turnover and training time.
  • Reduce rate of returns.
  • Increase automation in inbound and outbound handling.
  • Link and integrate warehouse systems.

Change is accelerating—from business models and operational profiles to the tools and technologies available. In response, supply chains need greater visibility to assets, people, and materials to meet escalating customer service requirements and re-optimize to a constantly changing landscape. In this exciting webinar, you’ll learn what innovators are doing to leverage smart infrastructure, advanced sensing, analytics, and optimized end-user technology to provide revolutionary levels of visibility in the plant and warehouse.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to achieve constant visibility to supply chain assets, people, and materials
  • How analytics can supplement traditional material handling practices
  • How to optimize end-user experiences in the plant and warehouse
