Retail Communication Solutions
In the warehouses and distribution centers of the retail industry, just-in-time (JIT) inventory systems and distribution processes must work flawlessly, or there can be serious financial consequences for the organization.
Once systems are in place, the benefits become fully realized – improvements will be slight, but failures will be costly. Helping people in the offices and on the floor communicate smarter could help prevent costly breakdowns in the system. But in their current situation, where most warehouses have plain old telephone service that doesn’t integrate with two-way radios or the more newly adopted cell phones, productive communication and collaboration doesn’t come easy.
IperiaVX solutions suites, including the Mobile Workforce Solution, can simplify the way people communicate with each other, even in a warehouse environment. Here’s how:
- A single point of contact, in the office or on the floor. No more hunting around to find a supervisor or manager, no more phone tag. Choose the network and device that’s best wherever they’re going or whatever’s being done. Not only does that make managers more productive, but when they’re on the floor, they help prevent on-the-job accidents – another threat to productivity.
- Ad-hoc conferencing, for agile cross-process action. On the warehouse floor, though supervisors are responsible for a single area, one process affects another like dominos in a line. IperiaVX gives supervisors the ability to initiate on-the-fly conference calls, automatically dialed from any device, for faster team decision-making.
- Efficient, effective, productive communication. From voice broadcasts to voice portals, IperiaVX helps the warehouse team get the information they need, right when they need it. Enhanced workflow, increased productivity, and reduced expenses are the natural result.
In its own way, IperiaVX offers a just-in-time solution, to an industry where JIT has gone from innovation to expectation. The Iperia Solution Team uses the IMPACT process to make smarter communication a reality, and make your business processes more effective than ever.
