When will next-gen technology solve some of our age-old problems?

On a recent trip to Johannesburg, stranded on the runway hearing the crushing words “delay”, I couldn’t quite get my head round why, in this day and age, with incredible intelligence and technology at our disposal we are still facing frustrations that were common 10 or even 20 years ago. We encounter problems or inconveniences everyday that are seemingly simple to solve, yet there often aren’t solutions on the market. Is this due to lack of innovation, funds or demand perhaps? Some solutions seem glaringly obvious to me.

The evolution of the modern forklift equipment

The evolution of the modern forklift equipment

Forklifts are a key part of warehouse efficiency and the supply chain as a whole.

Historically thought of as a ‘dumb’ piece of equipment in that they were totally reliant on the operator, forklifts have recently come to symbolise the digital transformation within warehouse operations.

The rise of ‘intelligent forklifts’ has completely revolutionised workflows: reducing material handling costs, improving fulfilment rates and streamlining stock management and tracking processes – all while driving better safety standards.

It wants the latest technology to support its operational efficiency, which is why it has deployed a range of ZXP Series printers, including the latest Series 7 printer, and associated cards and ribbons, as well as TC70 Touch Computers from Zebra Technologies.

The modern nature of warehouses and the need for fast, slick processes to meet shorter turnaround means that the idea of a manager just sitting in their corner office, only answering questions when workers come to the door, is a long way from reality.Managers now must be able to communicate with warehouse operatives one to one, at any time, as well as with multiple workers – in multiple parts of the warehouse – at once.

Choosing the right mobile solutions to support your retail requirements

How do you choose the right mobile solutions to support your retail requirements?

As the retail industry continues to evolve at an exponential rate, it’s imperative that retailers stay ahead of the curve. In our last two blogs, The Future of the Retail Customer Experience and Mobile Technology in the Retail Industry: Top Apps Retailers Are Using, we have explored how the use of technology in-store is changing, including how retail mobile solutions are being deployed in order to maximise ROI (return on investment) and how they are being used to improve the customer experience.

In this blog, we’ll discuss how retailers can choose the right mobile solutions to empower their employees, as well as how they can be integrated into the store effectively.
