Wireless Shipping Workstations Deliver Ultimate Flexibility

BY ELIMINATING JUST 6 MINUTES OF WALKING PER HOUR, THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS CAN BE SAVED OVER THE COURSE OF A YEAR.

It’s easy to underestimate how much time is spent walking back and forth to fixed printers, computers, scales and other equipment. But it’s a costly practice. Mobile powered workstations can eliminate many slowdowns in the shipping line such as:

  • Time lost as employees walk back and forth between loading docks, storage racks, assembly lines, inspection/testing areas, etc. and a desk-bound computer and printer.
  • Time lost as data that is written on paper at the work site is keyed into another system – a classic redundancy of effort.
  • Errors that occur when employees rely on their memory to key data from the work site to the computer station.
  • Redundant labor required to move large products over to the shipping line, only to be moved again once the shipment is processed.

These are just a few examples of workflow slowdowns that can be eliminated adding mobile powered workstations.

HOW MUCH TIME/MONEY CAN YOU SAVE?

One company gained a 40% productivity improvement after implementing mobile powered workstations.* Take a look at the following example of savings gained by eliminating the time/labor spent walking from a work site to a static computer/printer station:
two-people-at-computer-verticalSAMPLE ROI CALCULATION:
Minutes/hr walking to static station = 6 minutes
Average labor rate (w/benefits)/hour = $22/hour
Work hours per week = 40 hours/week
Number of mobile stations you want to implement = 5 stations
Average cost per Workstation ($1,300 – $2,900*) = $2200

ANNUAL SAVINGS:
Money saved by eliminating walking = $22,880/yr
Hours saved per year = 1,040 hours/yr
Pay back for initial workstation purchase = 5.77 months
