The tote picking feature in Warehouse Insight enables users to become highly efficient by picking and sorting multiple orders at once. Without tote picking, pickers would drop off a batch of items at shipping, leaving shippers to tediously sort out which items belong to which orders. With tote picking, pickers can use pick carts with dedicated positions or totes to separate the items while they’re picking.
Each tote or cart position is equipped with a permanent barcode that is used to tie an order to the tote. When an item is picked, Warehouse Insight will direct which tote or position to place the item in, and verify the item was placed properly. With the built-in barcode scanning capabilities, Warehouse Insight ensures pickers select the correct items and place them into the correct totes. In the event an error is made, Warehouse Insight will alert the user.
With the tote picking feature, workers will decrease the amount of time it takes to pick and sort multiple orders.
