May 18, 2020 – Zebra Technologies Corporation announced Zebra MotionWorks Warehouse, a location solution that modernizes warehouse operations by tracking assets, automating transactions, and reducing shipping errors. Designed for warehouses with cross-docking workflows or high-volume staging areas that require quick turns, MotionWorks Warehouse can track items even while they’re in motion.
Featuring Zebra’s ATR7000 RTLS readers and passive RFID tags, MotionWorks Warehouse provides real-time asset movement information throughout warehouse operations, increasing shipment and inventory visibility and bringing automation to previously manual processes. Automated transactions enable faster order processing along with quality control and security while providing data integration into existing business applications.
MotionWorks Warehouse integrates with most warehouse management systems (WMS) and enables workflow orchestration by issuing real-time directed workflows based on worker and asset location, providing critical issue and workflow event alerts and notifications while offering a centralized dashboard to monitor work in progress.
According to Zebra’s 2024 Warehousing Vision Study, decision makers recognize the need to modernize their warehouse operations to keep up with increasing demands with 61 percent planning to enable partial automation or labor augmentation with new technologies. Meanwhile, 55 percent plan to implement real-time location systems (RTLS) in the warehouse by 2024.
