We are experts in order-fulfilment
As experts in order-fulfilment, Pcdata understands the complexities of a fast-paced warehouse environment. Pcdata has successfully installed Pick to Light (PTL) solutions in a wide variety of industries and applications. Products in these warehouses range from food to cosmetics, from clothing to electronics, and many other product categories.
Pick to Light is the ideal tool to use in environments where fast-moving unit picking takes place. Compared to rival picking technologies such as voice or RF, Pick to Light offers the most significant potential productivity benefits, along with all the expected improvements in order accuracy. Pcdata has invested years of experience into making the company’s Pick To Light system easy to implement and extremely flexible. The results are dramatic improvements in productivity and profitability.
Click & Go Display: Revolutionizing PTL
In the past, a key criticism of Pick to Light was ‘inflexibility’. As a ‘fixed’ technology, old-style tube-mounted picking displays could be difficult to maintain, service, and adjust. Adding additional displays to a rack or pick workstation was a difficult task and often involved dismantling entire racks or display tubes. After extensive design and testing, Pcdata developed the Click & Go display. This revolutionary technology changes and improves the way PTL hardware is installed, managed, and modified. This simple modular approach makes these PTL systems flexible and easy to maintain. They are easy to expand and will therefore not restrict growth or expansion.
PTL Software: Three Levels to Accommodate All Customers
Pcdata modular hardware is supported by three software channels designed to address the full range of clients’ needs. Using these channels, solutions can be implemented on a hardware-only basis or as a full WMS functionality, (when PTL systems are a single component in a wider operation.)
Distrib Pick to Light by Pcdata provides the full range of options and is typically installed in more complex warehouse environments. When automation integration is required, Distrib PTL software handles PLC integration, replenishment demands, weight-controlled quality control, and workload balancing.
PickStar by Pcdata is an easy-to-implement Pick to Light system which can be implemented in many different operations and order-picking environments. PickStar provides the traditional Pick to Light benefits including a high level of accuracy, efficiency, and reliability at a much lower investment.
Display Manager is a display hardware driver. The Display Manager application can be used as an easy and direct communication method between your own company software and Pcdata hardware. Display Manager is used by System Integrators to integrate Pcdata PTL hardware into their own solutions. Display Manager is also used by end users, who may already have sophisticated WMS (warehouse management systems) or ERP (enterprise resource planning) solutions capable of completing all required warehouse and business intelligence.
