FaaS Offering Brings Flexible Order Picking Solution to Market
ALLEN, Texas, Feb. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PFSweb, Inc. (PFSW), a global commerce services company, today announced the introduction of CloudPickSM, a new “Fulfillment-as-a-Service” (FaaS) product, which is being designed to create efficient order fulfillment picking operations for brands and retailers.
A product of the PFSweb Operations business unit (PFS), CloudPick is a turn-key, cloud-based order fulfillment picking solution designed to be deployed into distribution centers and integrated with Warehouse Management Systems (WMS). The CloudPick FaaS product includes pick carts assembled and configured by PFS that feature pre-installed proprietary PFS software and hardware components from Pcdata, a global leader in logistics automation systems. Once assembled, the carts are shipped directly to the client’s fulfillment center for installation and use.
CloudPick is designed to shorten training times, simplify integrations, create flexibility based on product needs, and improve picking efficiency. These carts are designed with lighted buttons and prominent display interfaces to shorten the training process and improve pick accuracy. Our proprietary cloud-based CloudPick technology integrates with most Warehouse Management Systems through a standard messaging interface and the CloudPick carts operate over existing Wi-Fi networks reducing time to implement. Most importantly, the carts are easily configurable and can be customized to fit a number of different product types. More information can be found at pfscommerce.com/cloudpick.
“Picking productivity is a vital metric to creating an efficient and cost-effective fulfillment operation,” commented Zach Thomann, EVP and PFS General Manager. “Through the innovation of our own research and development, along with Pcdata’s hardware components, CloudPick is designed to maximize efficiency for any operation looking to scale their fulfillment model. Our desire is to help brands of all sizes gain the same advantages with this technology that we’ve experienced in our own fulfillment centers.”
