Selecting the Right Handheld Computer for Your Warehouse

May 10, 2018 •

WarehouseInvesting in the right technology for your warehouse needs can make all the difference in productivity and organization. However, with the rate that tech is rapidly changing, it is difficult to keep up the pace. Rather than choosing a handheld computer blindly, here are some tips on selecting the ideal device for your specific needs.

Accessories Matter

When shopping for a handheld computer, consider why your warehouse needs an upgrade. For example:

  • Are you interested in improving product inventory control? Invest in RFID scanners to create a database of your products.
  • Do you want to increase speed in shipping? Go with a barcode feature to help workers push product from storage to packaging more rapidly.
  • If your warehouse is already outfitted with handheld computers but is struggling with errors, the solution might be as simple as a backlight on the screen. After all, most warehouses lack proper lighting, which makes it difficult to read the small print on labels.

By starting with the needs of your warehouse, you can choose the best solution for handheld computers. You can also cut costs by buying just the technology you need rather than splurging on all of the bells and whistles that will go to waste.
