White paper on iWAREHOUSE provides customer insights into increased productivity, efficiencies and lower costs
GREENE, N.Y. — Data gathered directly from lift trucks is proving to be a valuable item in the warehouse manager’s toolbox. Users of iWAREHOUSE® by The Raymond Corporation have realized substantial cost savings and operational improvements through the system’s data gathering capabilities and suite of lift truck monitoring modules.
“Initially, as warehouse management systems (WMS) began to tie warehousing operations together, lift trucks stood apart as a missing link,” says Joe LaFergola, marketing manager of business and information solutions at The Raymond Corporation. “With the advent of the on-board vehicle manager, vehicle management systems were created to capture powerful data that could ultimately improve operator and warehouse performance. With iWAREHOUSE, this powerful data has enabled fleet managers to quantify these improvements in performance.”
The white paper on iWAREHOUSE, The Tales Lift Trucks Tell, examines the various modules of iWAREHOUSE and how they have helped optimize the user’s operations with tangible results.
The various modules helped users:
- * Streamline checklist processes
- * Reduce vehicle impacts
- * Rightsize fleets
- * Reduce costs with maintenance data
- * Optimize battery life
