Mobile picking and optimal process control
PROLAG®Go guides your picking staff on the shortest paths through the warehouse using mobile devices such as tablets, smart glasses, pick by voice devices, smartphones or wireless scanners. PROLAG®Go supports all of the principal warehousing processes such as stock putaway and relocation, picking, production supply, production disposal and shipping. The application also provides a large number of additional modules and functions which can be activated as required, giving you the agility and flexibility to respond rapidly to future changes in your processes.
PROLAG®Go organizes and monitors transport routes for your picking staff. Transport orders are transmitted by the software to the picker’s tablet, smart glasses, pick by voice device, smartphone or wireless scanner – providing all the benefits of paperless warehousing.
PROLAG®Go can be run on any Android or Windows Mobile device.
Four components for success
Optimization is an integral part of the system: with functions for route optimization, order prioritization, interleaving, reducing waiting periods, monitoring transport operations or generating user-specific statistics and analyses, you can achieve optimal resource allocation and capacity utilization.
Communication between PROLAG®Go and the mobile end device takes place online – all bookings and movements can be viewed by the picker in real time. The mobile devices are linked with PROLAG®Go over the internet or via wireless Technology.
The system knows the optimal transport routes and paths through the warehouse as well as any potential constraints such as height restrictions, aisle widths or restricted access zones and selects the right picker or transport route accordingly. PROLAG®Go eliminates the risk of collision by allocating orders such that only a certain number of employees are allowed in a given area at any one time. Moreover, the software ensures that forklift operators and workers on foot are not using the same route at the same time. This guarantees the safety of all employees.
PROLAG®Go features a flexible and modular design: basic requirements are covered by the standard module, and any further needs can be met swiftly and flexibly by additional modules which can be activated any time during normal operations. This enhances your capability to react flexibly to future challenges or short-term changes in the market.
