We test SkuVault in the warehouse through every step of the feature creation process, getting direct, immediate input from warehouse workers, including warehouse managers, pickers, shipping, quality control, and more, as well as customer service representatives, listers, buyers, and, of course, business owners. We listened to their suggestions and observed processes that slowed them down or sped them up. We tweaked, refined, scrapped, and built features until we found a combination that improved efficiency and reduced human error across the board. We're constantly improving SkuVault by releasing new features and modifying old ones based on our clients' feedback.
Our add / pick / remove pages are all pretty representative of this whole "streamlined" thing. You can check them out in our live (free) demo, here, or take a gander at the screenshot to the left to see what I mean. See how simple we've kept it? Just enter quantity ("1" is auto-populated, so you can just skip the field if you're picking a bunch of single-order items), scan the product barcode, and scan the location barcode - and, voila! Item, picked! It's our goal to leave as little room for errors as possible - when a product barcode is scanned or typed in, a picture of the item in question will even pop up with product details, to further prevent human error. Nice!
The primary benefit of a user-friendly application is to prevent human error. If warehouse workers have fewer chances to mess up, then they won't mess up as frequently! See what we did there? Of everything we've tried in order to speed up various warehouse processes, keeping it simple is the reigning speed champion. Fewer mistakes, less confusion, and simplified processes all lead to decreased pick / pack / ship times, and our clear, easy-to-use interface is what keeps SkuVault so expedient.
