Put-to-Light systems are an automated sortation method to break down bigger product quantities into smaller individual orders. Known as the “scan and sort method” this order fulfillment method makes it so items that are normally batch packed beforehand is transported to the put station. The operator will scan a bar code on individual items and the lights will illuminate with any customer order including that product. This technology solution will help increase productivity as it cuts out the element of searching for the put location.
Put-to-Light offers the same hardware devices and software as pick to light, meaning you can utilize both systems on one platform. This will be beneficial when it comes to training new employees to utilize this technology solution. This system’s main goal is to give you the ability to pack and ship more orders in less time while reducing errors.
