How Pio Simplifies Warehouse Processes
Pio is an automated warehouse management system that stores and retrieves your merchandise for order fulfillment. Think of Pio as a game-changing inventory tool that helps your business grow by maximizing space, time, and energy. Compared to conventional shelving, Pio’s compact design uses up to 10 times less space and retrieves orders up to 5 times faster. Quick to install and easy to use, our radically efficient technology leaves the traditional warehouse far in the past – where we think it belongs.
Picking with Pio
In a traditional warehouse, you start your day by reviewing recent orders, strategizing to pick and pack as many orders as possible before your carrier arrives for pickup. Batch picking can help save time, but when orders come in fast, it's hard to keep up. A backlog often begins to grow.
With Pio, you stay on top of orders. The robots work 24/7 to prepare all incoming orders, so that they're lined up and ready to be picked before the day begins. Pio calculates the most efficient sequencing for picking, eliminating the need to plan out batch picks. Instead, you simply open the Pio app, launch the Picking workflow, and hit the ground running.
In cases where you need to prioritize certain orders to get out the door faster, you can do that too.
Storing with Pio
Replenishment is an incredibly time-consuming process that needs to be done accurately and efficiently.
Pio significantly speeds up the process, as you no longer need to spend time walking around the warehouse to put stock away manually.
All you need to do is launch the Store workflow, identify the bin split that you’d like to use, confirm the product, and place the items inside the bin. Update the quantity, then it’s on to the next item.
Searching with Pio
Use the Search workflow in the app to find the item you want. The app will then show you a full inventory count of that item — and all of the bins in which it's located. Just need to grab one quickly? Request the first bin in the list to be brought to the access port. Once it’s at the port, you can retrieve your item and manually update the stock count of items in the bin before you send it back to the grid.
Returns with Pio
Pio transforms return processing from tedious to effortless. You use the Storing workflow just as you would with new inventory, and items are swiftly sent back into the grid. The next time that item is ordered or searched, the bin containing the returned item will be treated just like any other bin containing that SKU.
Level up your warehouse
Pio is the missing piece from your growth strategy. By implementing automation in your warehouse, you can grow while maintaining focus on the parts of your business that matter most.
