Embracing Mobility in Material Handling with Havis Docking & Mounting Solutions

WARMINSTER, PA, June 5, 2023 –

In today’s rapidly evolving world, the future of material handling in warehousing lies in embracing mobility as a critical driver of efficiency and productivity. With the integration of Havis docking and mounting solutions, factory workers can break free from the constraints of fixed workstations and become truly technology-mobile.

This blog post explores why mobility is crucial for securing the future of material handling and how Havis’s rugged solutions empower workers to enhance their mobility and revolutionize factory operations. By optimizing workflows, streamlining processes, and leveraging cutting-edge technology, factories can stay ahead in the competitive landscape and maximize their efficiency.

Material Handling Equipment 

Havis offers rugged docking & mounting systems for all warehouse applications to help keep workers connected and simplify the process between warehouses and distribution.

A forklift mount may be the most popular warehousing mobility solution, but Havis offers a full suite of mounting options for various warehousing applications, including forklifts, pallet jacks, work carts, and workstations. As a true manufacturer, Havis offers durability, safety, and nationwide support for various components that must meet strict requirements.

Flexibility & Adaptability

Mobility is the catalyst required for transforming traditional static environments into dynamic and agile spaces. Havis products are vital in enhancing flexibility and adaptability within factory environments. By equipping workers with mobile devices, they gain the power to connect, allowing them to move freely and access critical information in real-time.

Tablet mounts and other material handling equipment enable them to respond quickly to changing market demands, make informed decisions on the go, and adapt to evolving customer requirements. An employee’s capability to access data and systems while mobile enhances production levels and overall operational efficiency.

Improved Efficiency & Productivity

One of the key advantages of mobility in warehousing and material handling is streamlining workflows and eliminating unnecessary downtime. With Havis docks and mounts, factory workers can securely attach their devices to warehouse vehicles such as forklifts, pallet jacks, and work carts, creating a mobile workstation.

This integration creates an ideal solution allowing seamless operation and access to essential applications, inventory management systems, and communication tools while on the move. Forklift operators, for example, can view real-time inventory data, update orders, and communicate with team members. By eliminating the need to switch between stationary workstations and equipment, production is significantly enhanced with these material handling advancements in just one location.

Optimal Space Utilization

Traditionally fixed workstations occupy valuable floor space in the warehouse, limiting the storage and movement of inventory. Havis offers practical solutions designed to optimize space utilization. Havis mounting hardware ensures technology is securely stored and mounted for easy and secure access to vital information without needing additional workspace or installation.

Mounted devices allow workers quick, easy, and secure access to inventory data, order details, and communication channels while maintaining full mobility on the factory floor. This functionality maximizes space utilization and improves operational efficiency by reducing unnecessary travel time.

Enhanced Safety & Accuracy

Mobility in warehouses goes hand in hand with improved safety and accuracy. Havis docking and tablet mounting play a crucial role in ensuring that workers can perform their tasks efficiently while maintaining a focus on safety. By securely mounting tablets and mobile devices on forklifts or other equipment, workers have both hands free to operate machinery and handle heavy loads of materials, reducing the risk of injuries.

Havis’s suite of mounts can also integrate peripherals such as barcode scanners, printers, and RFID technology, enabling workers to quickly and accurately scan and track inventory, reducing errors, and improving overall inventory management.

Easy Installation

One of the significant advantages of Havis docking and mounting solutions in factory applications is their easy installation process. Havis understands the importance of minimizing downtime and ensuring a smooth transition when implementing new technologies.

With intuitive mounting hardware and straightforward installation instructions, warehouse operators can easily equip their vehicles and workstations with Havis mounting solutions throughout their facility, saving valuable time and resources. Havis mounting solutions are designed with user-friendly installation in mind, allowing for quick and hassle-free integration into existing factory setups. This seamless installation process ensures businesses can swiftly adopt Havis docking and mounting solutions and start reaping the benefits of enhanced mobility and production in their warehouse operations.

Scalability & Adaptability

Havis mounts for warehouse applications embody scalability and adaptability, allowing them to sync with evolving technology trends. When new computing devices are introduced to the warehouse market, these mounts can be easily adjusted to accommodate future upgrades without requiring a complete replacement. This flexibility not only saves costs but also ensures long-term usability.

Factory operators can rely on Havis mounts to seamlessly integrate with the latest computing devices, guaranteeing that their mounting solutions remain up-to-date and adaptable to changing technological requirements. By embracing the scalability and adaptability of Havis mounts, businesses can optimize their investments and maintain optimal functionality in their factory operations for years to come.

Real Time Data & Decision Making

Real-time data is crucial for making informed decisions in today’s fast-paced warehousing environment. With Havis docking and mounting device solutions, workers can access real-time loading data on their tablets, enabling them to make quick decisions based on accurate information.

Whether it is monitoring inventory levels, tracking orders, or adjusting workflows, the ability to access up-to-date data on the go empowers workers to optimize operations, respond promptly to changing demands, and ensure efficient and secure order fulfillment.

Improved Customer Service

The future of warehousing is not only about internal efficiency but also about enhancing the customer experience. Mobility is vital in improving customer service in factory operations and other harsh environments.

With Havis docking and mounting solutions, workers can provide real-time updates to customers regarding order status, delivery times, and any potential delays on their tablets. By having immediate and secure access to information, workers can address customer inquiries promptly and accurately, building trust and ensuring customer satisfaction. The capability to offer transparency and responsiveness in customer interactions sets distribution centers apart from competitors and strengthens customer relationships.
