Improve Fulfillment Accuracy with Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the wave of the future. You may be wondering if AI can help you with inventory management. The answer is most definitely!

Inventory  management systems are not just for tracking inventory and orders, they can also be used to automate many of the processes associated with tracking inventory and orders.

 

What can AI do for you?

  1. Automate warehouse choice
  2. Automate pick and pack route
  3. Automate packaging and shipping
  4. Shipping Mappers

 

Automate Warehouse Choice

Using an inventory management system, you can define a set of rules to automatically determine which warehouse should fulfill which order. This can be to fulfill from the warehouse physically closest to the shipping address, or to fulfill from the warehouse with the most available in stock. Whatever your set of rules is, automating the warehouse choice will simplify the process.

 

Automate Pick and Pick Route

Automating how orders are picked from the shelves is one of the best ways to ensure efficiency in the warehouse. Scheduling waves (automated group picks), allows more orders to be picked at once. In addition, an inventory management system can create the quickest route through the warehouse to do the pick.

 

Automate Packaging and Shipping

With a predefined set of rules, an order management system (OMS) can determine which packaging should be used for each order. This will take the guesswork out of the packaging process and ensure more uniform results. In addition, AI can determine the correct shipping speed for each package.

 

Shipping Mappers

A fully functional shipping management system should allow you to price check the different carriers to determine the cheapest method.
