SwiftPick

An enhancement to case picking for both flow rack and individual pallet picking, the SwiftPick System increases the individual picking rates and efficiencies of the product flow through automation. The solution incorporates proprietary software that enables operators to use a mobile device or tablet as their case picking monitor. It further allows users to pick at a pace that keeps the line conveyor full of product- increasing the overall units per hour moving through the system.

Traditionally, operators get their pick order from overhead monitors that are located adjacent to their pick area. With SwiftPick, they have the information literally attached to their arm or wrist. As the operators go up and down the aisles to pick the assigned cases, they no longer have to refer back to the overhead monitor to register the item was picked and placed on the conveyor. With SwiftPick they can simply refer to their hand held device, tap on the item picked and immediately move on to the next. In addition, the operator can view several picks at once as opposed to one at a time.

SwiftPick Advantage:

  • Increases individual picking rates
  • Highly intuitive and can be set up in a few hours
  • Requires minimal training
  • Seamlessly integrates with new or existing systems

SwiftPick users can also add additional program applications effortlessly. For example, it can also be set to alert operators where additional pick support is required in the warehouse- further helping Vertique customers optimize warehouse efficiencies.
