The Warehouse is Changing

More item-level picking and returns. A dizzying amount of complexity. Demands for shorter delivery times. High workforce turnover. All these factors are putting you under greater pressure to fulfill more orders in less time with fewer long-term employees. That’s the new reality of warehousing.

On top of that, you can’t afford to ignore what’s going to happen after January 1, 2020. Microsoft® is ending its extended support of Windows® Embedded and Mobile operating systems. That means more security risks and diminishing capabilities from your legacy Windows devices.

How well you adapt to these forces depends in great part on how quickly you migrate to modern mobile devices—modernizing with Android™ is the path to faster, leaner operations.
