More than ever before, warehouse operators need to carefully monitor the flow of personnel, vehicles and equipment in their heavily trafficked facilities. Warehouses are becoming larger, inventories are increasing exponentially, and layouts have become complex, making it difficult to keep an eye on the entire operation and keep it safe.
Redpoint Real Time Location System (RTLS) is a perfect solution for improving warehouse operation and safety by tracking forklifts, operators, staff and critical assets. Here are some key features and benefits of Redpoint’s RTLS for warehouse material handling.
Monitor vehicles and staff in real time
With location accuracy well under a meter and system latency virtually at zero, Redpoint can deliver benefits that go well beyond just telling you where your vehicles are in the current operation. Now you can see all active vehicles & staff, their precise location and make sure the right equipment is in use to drive better productivity.
Manage vehicle operation to reduce incidents
Redpoint RTLS can detect and alarm potential collision
By giving you insights into areas of congestion, identifying precisely where impacts are happening and allowing you to create geofences for high traffic areas in your warehouse it becomes possible to:
Create geofence and safety buffer zones
System administrators can easily set up geofence and buffer zones around vehicles, personnel and high traffic or dangerous areas of operation to reduce vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-pedestrian and vehicle-to-object collisions. When current fleet or workers enter a zone, our system can trigger facility signal lights, alarms and high visibility LED safety vests to alert operators working in close proximity or alert them that they have entered a restricted area.
Capture historical data for trackables and zones
The system captures location data ongoing and allows clients to carefully track movement of vehicles to help identify alternative travel routes to improve throughput and productivity. Reports are accessible to show activity status, utilization by segments, can generate heatmaps, spaghetti diagrams and route playbacks to improve areas of congestions and productivity.
