Lightning Pick Releases Mobile Pick to Light App

New cross-platform LP Mobile® smartphone application offers real-time productivity dashboard plus system operations controls and diagnostics.

Germantown, WI – March 11, 2011: Today Lightning Pick Technologies released the new LP Mobile® application providing Lightning Pick users with real-time productivity views, operations management controls and system diagnostics through their mobile or smart phones. LP Mobile is a web application, compatible across all popular smartphone platforms.

LP Mobile gives managers a competitive advantage by keeping them connected to their Lightning Pick systems even when not in close physical proximity of the pick area or a Lightning Pick software workstation. The mobile app offers real-time dashboard style updates on their Lightning Pick-controlled operations including pick rates, area overview, order progress and other facility statistics right through their phones.

Besides Key Performance Indicator data views, LP Mobile actually allows managers to execute operational changes through their phones for continued optimization. Users can create work plans, log employees in or out of the system and examine order details or box contents with the appropriate order number or barcode label.

LP Mobile can even run system diagnostics within specific areas of the pick operation, should an error occur.

You will see new Lightning Pick software version 6.1 managing paperless pick technologies like Pick-to-Light, Put-to-Light, Pack-to-Light (Put-to-Light or Put-to-Store), RF and Voice-Directed Picking.
