“Smart Cart™ is a solution that quickly pays for itself through gained productivity and accuracy in order fulfillment," explains Hank Vaughan, new product manager, at the Numina Group.

Numina Group moves multimodal picking to the next level with its new Smart Cart™ technology, to be premiered at Parcel Forum 2011, (held in Chicago, at the O’Hare Hyatt Regency, October 24-26), with a live demonstration in Booth 414. This latest advancement allows 12 or more orders to be picked/put directly into shipping cartons at a 30% faster rate than a voice only pick cart. Smart Cart™ combines voice directed picking with wireless put to light/carton batch to provide a single touch, pick-pack solution.

Pick Execution™, Numina Group’s industry leading multi-modal picking software seamlessly combines voice directed picking with wireless put/pick to light, carton batch pick and pack automation. “Smart Cart™ is a solution that quickly pays for itself through gained productivity and accuracy in order fulfillment," explains Hank Vaughan, Senior Application Engineer, at the Numina Group. " It is simple to deploy - requiring little operator training, due to the combination of speaker independent voice commands and lights guiding the operator to accurately and quickly place the right item directly to the shipper carton. Order fulfillment becomes a single touch, streamlined, pick and pack process.”

Smart Cart™ for batch order picking, will pay for itself in most applications in under 12 months. It extends the industry leading features of Pick Execution™ and comes with labor management and velocity based SKU picking analytics. Real-time labor management and SKU velocity based picking analytics provide the tools to further deliver higher return on investment. The new Smart Cart™ technology not only optimizes pick and pack processes – it increases the profitability of distribution operations.
Numina Group is offering show attendees a 10% discount on a Smart Cart™ user’s license if they place an order by the end of 2011.
