Do you know the difference between lilac and lavender? What about between coral and hibiscus? If knowing the subtleties between colors isn't on the top of your to do list, you are not alone. But being able to choose between two very closely related items is vital to the FSI pick and pack services team. In fact, the pick and pack services team MUST get it right each and every time. The pick and pack services team's accuracy keeps our clients and their customers happy. So, how does FSI's pick and pack services team achieve the 99.9% accuracy rate that is tops in the business?
Well, we don't quiz the pick and pack services team on the differences in color shadings, that's for sure. But we do help them along with our innovative barcode technology. The FSI barcode technology is used throughout our facility to increase the efficiency and accuracy of our pick and pack services. From the time stock is received in the warehouse, to the time the pick and pack services team assembles a package, the barcode technology helps us to have a complete picture of exactly what is being stored.
Location, color, size, product and quantity information for each item is all contained in the barcode technology system. Each pick and pack services team member has a scanner that updates the system as they assemble packages for our clients. As the pick and pack services team boxes that small, lavender t-shirt, the system is updated in real time. This barcode technology is also used to verify that all of the items selected and boxed are the items requested. This ensures our pick and pack services team is able to maintain its high accuracy rate.
Our pick and pack services team is passionate about getting the details right. So while they might not be able to tell you the difference between lilac and lavender, the pick and pack services barcode technology makes sure they pack the right items for you each and every time!back to fulfillment 101
