Green
Everyone is talking about working “green” and one of the side benefits of using Warehouse Link is the “green” benefit of going paperless. Paper may be the “way we’ve always done it” and there may be some people that want to hold on to that security blanket and resist change, but once the system is in place it is guaranteed that the naysayers will not want to go back to the old way of working. A paper driven system will only display information for that piece of time in history. Warehouse Link provides the same “need-to-know” information that paper gives, but the information is up-to-the second, real-time, accurate information, without wasting paper to share the information. How often are pick tickets misplaced somewhere in the warehouse and need to be reprinted? This will not happen with Warehouse Link – the information cannot be misplaced and it is always available. Oh, and one other “green” benefit is ROI – Warehouse Link generally pays for itself in 6-9 months!
