Dematic Extends Mobile Monitoring For Increased Realtime Warehouse Control

GRAND RAPIDS (WWJ) -- Dematic, a supplier of logistics systems for the factory, warehouse, and distribution center, has further extended the power of its mobile monitoring service designed to deliver real-time warehouse information via smartphones or tablet devices.

Now, in addition to pick and sort activities, users can remotely access and supervise Automated Guided Vehicle equipment and performance, further extending visibility into warehouse operations for quicker and more informed decision-making. Additionally, the mobile monitoring solution now supports remote application updates, which are accessible through a secure site where users can download future updates and releases.

By providing real-time business information that can be analyzed directly on a mobile device, Dematic leverages the power of warehouse data beyond the desktop, helping users to keep processes running at optimal levels, even when they are located off-site.
Managers and supervisors can remotely view and manage material handling systems, devices, and resources in real-time through an easy-to-understand interface and dashboards. This provides better insight into operations for quick, accurate, and actionable decision-making from anywhere at any time.

"Going forward, we believe that mobility is no longer an option, but rather a critical business requirement that unlocks productivity to provide a competitive advantage," said Robert Nilson, vice president and general manager of software and supply chain intelligence at Dematic. "Delivering mobile performance information allows companies to quickly make informed decisions and take corrective actions for improved operational outcomes."

Dematic's mobile offering gives users an overall DC View with the flexibility to virtually navigate throughout the facility, drill-down into specific areas, and display fresh data at any time. Dashboards provide operational information for all areas including receiving, storage, order fulfillment, sorting, shipping, AGV activities, and more.

In addition to working with Dematic solutions, mobile monitoring can be customer-configured to operate with competitive offerings. It's available for Android version 4.2 (Jellybean), Kindle Fire (second generation 7"models), and iOS 4.3 (or later).
