If you’ve come across this blog post, we can assume that you’re on a quest. Your quest is to find out how you can take advantage of direct-to-customer sales as well as increased order fulfillment—and, thus far, all you’ve been able to determine is that manufacturing & warehouse automation tools will help in some way.

As time has passed, you’ve begun to regret your choice in taking on this quest. Like Frodo and his lengthy challenge to destroy the Ring of Power, your quest has begun to span too much time and you feel hassled and harried at each new obstacle. These obstacles include software integration headaches, customization problems with upgrades, and constant phone calls with too many integration software vendors.

That’s all about to change, because your quest has brought you here. Read on to find the answer you’ve been seeking.

The Riddle of Manufacturing + Warehouse Success

In The Lord of the Rings, Bilbo Baggins the hobbit first obtained the Ring of Power by winning a riddle contest with the loathsome Gollum. This may sound like a familiar action in your own quest.

We get it: Sometimes trying to get information about pricing and integration capabilities for manufacturing & warehouse automation software can feel like you’re battling a loathsome software vendor while trying to make sense of pricing and implementation riddles.

While Bilbo Baggins presumably had nothing better to do with his life than sit in an underground cave talking riddles with Gollum, you have work to do. Real work. You have customers to get back to. Right now. You need a solution that integrates seamlessly and makes sense.

The ONE Solution to Rule Them All …

If you waste your time with riddles, your competitors, like Sauron (the evil villain in The Lord of the Rings), will have time to amass armies and crush your business. What you need is a magic tool that helps your business:

  • Increase manufacturing speed and efficiency
  • Provide at-a-glance shop-floor analytics
  • Keep production and materials issue data up to the minute in real time
  • Plan and schedule materials, labor, equipment, and tools for delay-free production
  • Take care of complex inventory tracking, such as multi-bin and pallet tracking
  • Control and manage all devices on your shop floor

But where could such a magical tool exist, and who are the keepers of this tool?
