Panasonic announces that it will showcase at NRF 2019: Retail’s Big Show a collection of enterprise-grade technology solutions for customers in the manufacturing, logistics and retail sectors, that will help them improve and optimize processes from shipping to proof of delivery. To illustrate these solutions, Panasonic will deliver a series of educational main stage presentations on industry trends, streamlined processes, integrated digital solutions, as well as Panasonic’s professional support systems and services.
Panasonic will feature presentations that demonstrate the value of integrating innovative software technology with rugged mobile laptops and handheld computers. Notably, Panasonic will debut a first-to-market solution, Visual Sort Assist (VSA), a semi-automation software that achieves dynamic sortation in manual facilities. Combining barcode scanning, projection and 3D sensor technology, VSA detects and tracks parcels throughout a facility and supports streamlined sortation, delivering dramatic cost reductions in package routing and increased throughput.
In addition to Visual Sort Assist, Panasonic will feature the following integrated solutions:
- Delivery Execution: Offers visibility and traceability throughout the delivery process. Proof-of-delivery software paired with rugged mobile computers connects drivers, back-office workers and logistics management to enable faster data entry, reduce delivery and pick-up errors, and provide real-time information for customers and organizations.
- Rapid Application Development: Accelerates software application development when updating operating systems. When business critical legacy applications must be ported over to more modern operating systems, Rapid Application Development rewrites software applications so they are compatible and seamlessly integrate with warehouse management systems.
- Voice Picking: Eliminates manual data entry, making workers more efficient and accurate. Optimizing order picking with voice recognition software and mobile computers with barcode scanners reduces training time and optimizes productivity.
- In-Store Execution: Connects workers to real-time information and alerts. In-store execution software puts inventory data at your workers’ fingertips, which empowers employees and keeps customers satisfied.
“Supply chains are complex ecosystems, and the industry is rapidly evolving at every touchpoint, driving a critical need to develop technology solutions that customize and modernize the processes to create better efficiencies and work environments. We want our customers to rely upon Panasonic as their technology consultant, capable of providing custom solutions to amplify their capabilities,” said Magnus McDermid, SVP Mobility Solutions at Panasonic. “With our network of partners, we are able to offer customers drastically enhanced operations, from the back of the warehouse to the front of the store.”
