Optimize Workforce Mobility with a Mobile Computer Cart with Battery
Modern warehouses, distribution and fulfillment centers, and manufacturing plants need to work quickly and efficiently to stay competitive in an ever-evolving industry. To achieve this, many have mobilized their workforce. Improving efficiency and productivity by providing workers with the tools and equipment they need to complete their tasks on the go, while limiting steps between tools they need, has been a popular trend for nearly two decades.
The best-performing enterprises are continually improving their processes and finding new and better ways to complete their tasks. What’s the next step in continuous workflow process improvement? It’s finding new ways to bring more tools and technology to the mobilized workforce, including the mobile computer cart with battery.
What a Mobile Computer Cart with Battery Brings to Your Workforce
A basic cart with four wheels has always been part of any warehouse, distribution or fulfillment center, and manufacturing plant; for years, workers have needed to get items from point a to point b. However, today’s facilities are much more developed and refined than they were in the past, utilizing wireless networks, wireless barcode scanning devices, mobile computers, vehicle-mount computers, and voice-directed commands.
In order to continually raise the bar and cultivate a truly mobile workforce, this upward technological shift must transfer down to workers and the tools they use to complete their tasks, including upgrading their basic four-wheeled cart to a rugged, agile, mobile computer cart with battery.
A mobile computer cart with battery not only mobilizes your workforce in traditional ways, but also offers workers access to their enterprise’s WMS system, ERP, and other network applications no matter where they are in the facility. A mobile computer cart with battery can also be used to transport and power PCs and laptops connected to a wireless network without worrying about cables for charging, freeing workers from tethered-to-wall operations.
The cart can also be attached to additional tools the workforce may need, including industrial printers, label printers, barcode scanners–anything the worker uses that requires power and wireless connectivity. This further enables the workforce’s mobility and capabilities while reducing process errors in areas like picking, packing, inventory, inspection, labeling, counting, order fulfillment, and more.
The battery system on a mobile computer cart with battery provides 8-16+ hours of power, with a 30W average load. The power system is also fast charging at 2-3 hours and is hot-swappable for 100% availability and zero downtime. These battery capabilities will ensure that workforce processes are never interrupted by lack of power.
Additional Benefits of a Mobile Computer Cart with Battery
In addition to optimized workflows leading to boosts in productivity, a mobile computer cart with battery provides further benefit to your organization. By reducing the steps workers use walking back and forth between the warehouse and a fixed workstation, the risk of potential industry declines, increasing worker safety. This also leads to reductions in wasted movement, increasing productivity, and improving the return-on-investment ratio.
A mobile computer cart with battery also eliminates safety and tripping hazards, such as extension cords and power strips, due to its wireless nature. This allows employees to walk freely throughout the warehouse without tripping and injuring themselves, as well as potentially ruining equipment.
While traditional mobile carts have been heavy and hard to maneuver, today’s powered mobile workstations are built with ergonomics in mind, freeing the workforce of mobile technology’s bulky, wearable components. They are also completely customizable and purpose-built, allowing for additions such as mounts, holders, brackets, shelves, and more to accommodate unique needs.
Carts have been a critical element of productivity and efficiency in warehouses, distribution and fulfillment centers, and manufacturing plants as long as these facilities have existed. Competitive enterprises are continuously improving processes. The workforce was one step, but further additions can be made, especially as these facilities continue to evolve and become more reliant on technology.
