FKI Logistex, a global leader in integrated material handling solutions has announced enhancements to its EASYpick order fulfillment software. EASYpick now offers customers a variety of new features for cost-effective management of distribution and manufacturing fulfillment operations. The software integrates multiple light- and voice-directed picking and putting technologies and supports FKI Logistex EASYpick Pick-to-Light, GoKart, Voice, RF and EASYput Put-to-Light.
The latest EASYpick upgrade adds enhanced reporting tools for workload planning management, quality assurance and audit, productivity, order status, wave management and user maintenance. It also enables users to create detailed and customized reports, which can be exported to Crystal Reports and other business intelligence applications.
Using EASYpick's dynamic zoning tools, supervisors and order pickers can easily manage the system during operations. Supervisors can reassign workers to order picking zones based on available personnel or remaining time in a shift, and order pickers can reduce or increase their zones by scanning bar codes to add or drop sections. Light- or voice-directed cycle counting requests can also be downloaded to the EASYpick system, which notifies users between jobs when there is a cycle count in their zones.
Using EASYpick's new My View feature, each individual user can log in and customize their view of the system and specify the section ranges that appear on their work status, workload planning and work history screens.
The software's new graphical user interface (GUI) connects through an application downloaded onto the computer instead of through a browser. This technology provides intuitive navigation and supplies users with the convenience of remote access via an intranet or internet connection.
"EASYpick has been the most robust and full-featured order fulfillment software on the market for many years," said Bill Hubacek, director of product development, FKI Logistex Warehouse and Distribution North America. "By constantly improving the software's functionality we can help our customers continuously increase productivity."
