What to Consider When Choosing a Mobile Device

Choosing the proper mobile device is key to the success of any warehouse. Intermec Technologies recently released an article on the 7 questions to ask yourself before implementing a new mobile solution:

1. Do you have an existing WMS (Warehouse Management System)?
2. Will your warehouse have wireless coverage?
3. How are you going to prepare your devices for deployment?
4. Are your training plans and resources structured for a successful technology implementation?
5. How will you deal with damages and repairs?
6. How will you provide and manage user support?
7. Do you use returnable containers in your warehouse / distribution network? Do you often lose them?

Once you’ve asked yourself these crucial questions, it will be much easier to identify the proper device for you. Check out popular devices here.
