The perfect addition for economical solutions: Paperless picking

And bulky items often can’t be stored at all. We offer a range of paperless picking technology for providing the best possible support to employees in manual warehouse areas.
By using various digital devices to support manual processes it is possible to quickly and accurately fulfill orders. Productivity is considerably higher than with paper lists. These also ensure a seamless flow of data: The stock levels for an article or the status of an order can be checked at any time.
