In 2023, there’s no shortage of technology to automate individual tasks and processes within the warehouse. But these solutions alone aren’t enough to boost operational efficiency. They play into fragmented and disjointed systems, overlooking the most important factor of all: the end-to-end operator experience. To truly streamline your warehouse operations, you need a holistic, 360 view of your entire frontline experience. You then need to optimize this experience so that it’s seamless, agile, and smart—and able to respond to operators’ needs in real-time. That’s where Ox comes in: the world’s first human-centered automation system designed to increase frontline efficiency through AI, machine learning, and data.
Ox doesn’t simply replace people with technology to speed up certain tasks. It works with your frontline operators, empowering them to be fully informed and more efficient at every single touchpoint. The result? A fully connected, data-driven warehouse with 24/7 visibility. With Ox, you can identify and close productivity gaps, reduce errors, boost customer satisfaction and employee retention, and increase operational efficiency by 20%+. Keep reading to learn how Ox is setting a new standard in warehouse planning.
What’s the problem with traditional warehouse planning, and how is Ox solving it?
Traditional warehouse planning methods rely heavily on manual processes, fragmented systems, and physical paperwork. This goes hand-in-hand with a lack of real-time data and operational visibility, resulting in:
Inaccurate inventory management
Inadequate order fulfillment
Limited flexibility and scalability
Slow and uninformed decision-making
Traditional warehouse planning is inherently inefficient, inflexible, and error-prone. At the end of the day, you’ve got unhappy customers whose orders are incorrect, missing, or delayed, and frustrated operators who don’t have the tools, data, and processes they need to do their jobs. None of this is good news for the bottom line. Now imagine a world where your entire warehouse operations are seamlessly connected and running on real-time data.
You’ve got a central platform dedicated to analyzing and optimizing every single aspect of your frontline. You’ve got operators connected to the platform via wearables, providing them with whatever information they need in real-time as they move through the warehouse hands-free. The whole system is leveraging AI to automate manual tasks, direct your operators with up-to-the-second decision-making, and gather data to identify and address efficiency gaps as they arise.
Sound good? Meet Ox.
