Supply chain operations have been anything but ordinary – especially for small and medium-sized businesses. The warehouse is the oft-forgotten element in customer service. Customer demands and supplier disruptions have forced companies of all sizes to change their approach to begin or accelerate warehouse automation. The risk is too high to operate a manufacturing operation without real-time asset and inventory visibility, prescriptive actions and data-driven performance. Most SMB industry leaders believe their environments will achieve full or partial automation in the next few years. But how can you choose the best path to get to full warehouse automation?
Adam Greenberg, President and Founder, NorthShore Care Supply, traveled this road in 2020 after observing his highly manual paper-based picking and packing processes were no longer scalable. There is a lot of pride and purpose that comes from building a business. NorthShore has always been committed to doing its own fulfillment, even as order volumes grew. “We had to do more with technology to meet the demands of our customers and our own high standards,” says Greenberg.
Join Adam Greenberg and Mark Wheeler, Zebra Technologies, Warehouse and Plant Floor Solutions, on September 16 for a discussion led by Travis Hessman, IndustryWeek chief editor, to discover why SMBs are focusing on automation tech to meet skyrocketing demand. During this webinar, this expert lineup will cover:
- Why businesses of all sizes should take a step back and look at things from a bird’s-eye view.
- How operators of growing warehouses are overcoming obstacles, including finding a technology solution that is not as complicated as the problem itself.
- The keys to success because there is no sidestepping it; modernization is complicated. Success requires a step-by-step approach.
