Applications of OCR in Warehouse Management
We’ll explore the various applications of OCR in warehouse management,
With OCR technology, business users can scan PO number, bill of lading, custom documents, delivery notes, etc. This avoids capturing data, saves time and, most importantly, reduces the risk of errors. This solution directly files this data in the central repository.
The key warehousing process where OCR can have a significant impact is in the product returns which are difficult to control. Capital intensive industries have major return issues as a result of their spare parts operations. Industrial designers will not have the knowledge of which parts need to be worked on before starting a repair work; every part that does not require repair will be returned to the warehouse in return, but often undocumented. Consequently, it is almost impossible to identify the parts. With OCR technology, the serial number on the product is scanned and it immediately gives the part details.
Our OCR solutions help to scan vehicle registration number, driver license or container information to ensure the correct delivery is loaded onto the appropriate vehicle or container. OCR gives the field workers a lot more integrity to the outgoing supply chain.
