Reduce Picking Errors while Increasing Efficiency

Pick-to-light pick systems provide a cost effective solution for material handling companies that do a high volume of small SKU products. The system simplifies order fulfillment during the picking process by using light-signals to direct the warehouse personnel to both the right bin and the right number of items to pick

The Pick-to-Light system streamlines warehouse operations while minimizing errors and improving the accuracy of sales monitoring and inventory reporting. It also significantly reduces the training required for warehouse employees.

Pick-to-Light processes utilize light-up displays on product bins and shelves. These displays align with the product type and quantity required for a picker to fulfill an order or re-stock merchandise. The light is extinguished when the picker removes the correct amount of the specified product from the batch. The picker then moves on to the next product on the order indicated by the light up display.
