Pay Attention to Employee Feedback
Are you aware of the day-to-day challenges employees face using these technologies? Are dropped RF signals an issue? Are the scanners reading everything? Do employees even understand all the features of the technology?
Minutes wasted on the warehouse floor mean opportunities lost. Malfunctioning devices mean deadlines are missed. It’s critical that the operators understand their technology - the success of your investments is contingent on this.
