PFSweb, Inc., a global commerce services company, has introduced CloudPick, a new ‘Fulfilment-as-a-Service’ (FaaS) product, which is designed to create efficient order fulfilment picking operations for brands and retailers.
A product of the PFSweb Operations business unit (PFS), CloudPick is a turn-key, cloud-based order fulfilment picking solution designed to be deployed into distribution centres 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 provider of logistics automation systems. Once assembled, the carts are shipped directly to the client’s fulfilment centre 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 customised to fit a number of different product types.
“Picking productivity is a vital metric to creating an efficient and cost-effective fulfilment 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 maximise efficiency for any operation looking to scale their fulfilment model. Our desire is to help brands of all sizes gain the same advantages with this technology that we’ve experienced in our own fulfilment centres.”
