Mobile Tech Taking Hold Across the Supply Chain

The applications for mobile technology in supply chains are staggering in number. Drones may inspect railroads for maintenance, and salespeople might design new kitchens for customers on a tablet, among many other possibilities highlighted in an article by Peter Bradley for DC Velocity. Nearly two thirds of warehouses in a study said they plan to automate more work processes over the next five years, with tablets prepping to replace pen and paper. And although wireless technology has been around for years, the difference now is how much more robust and reliable it has become. Item tracking becomes exponentially easier for instance, whether it regards shipping goods to retailers or food being moved by food manufacturers, when you use technology like smart mobile printers to label them. The idea is to get end-to-end visibility with everything under your domain. The supply chain ten years from now is likely to be an entirely different beast than what we see today, as it becomes augmented by technology to become something like a Supply Chain Robocop.
