We hear it over and over again – supply chain leaders have had to stay on their feet throughout these last few years of market disruption, and the latest data shows things aren’t slowing down anytime soon. Under pressure and facing uncertainty, it may be easy to put off big projects out of fear of losing the time and resources you need for day-to-day operations. Unfortunately, sticking to the status quo may be your most risky and expensive option in the long-run.
Most technology overhauls or installations can be burdensome, time-consuming, and a threat to meeting your daily numbers. Not the case with this new workflow execution engine from Mountain Leverage. Hosted and maintained by the expert team of industrial engineers, developers, and support technicians at Mountain Leverage, Ascend takes the heavy lift off your team and deploys a powerful solution quickly and efficiently.
What is Ascend?
Ascend is a cloud-based solution that Mountain Leverage hosts and manages for you. It supports workflows on a wide range of devices, including rugged Android devices, phones, tablets, Honeywell Talkman, and headsets used in voice picking.
By quickly implementing workflows without complex warehouse management system (WMS) customization, Ascend improves productivity and efficiency in distribution and fulfillment centers.
The Ascend platform provides real-time, ongoing intelligence to help you glean actionable insights for your operational performance. Ascend is also available in multiple languages for a multilingual workforce.
How would it work with my WMS?
Ascend works with any WMS connector, in the cloud or on-premise, and updates the WMS in real-time. Ascend can do what the WMS can’t do by optimizing workflows for efficiency without complex WMS customization. You can maximize the value of your WMS by interfacing and moving the work execution to Ascend, which is flexible and adaptable to your ongoing changing needs.
What improvements would I see?
Warehouse workers love using voice technology because it’s intuitive, ergonomic, easy to pick up and go, and by far the safest, most streamlined method of picking. Distributors using voice automation experience greater employee productivity, retention, and satisfaction, saving them in labor costs down the road and boosting their bottom line. Mountain Leverage’s Ascend software doubles down on the benefits of voice by enabling any sized warehouse to implement the technology with minimal transition and project stand-up time.
When you know you need to do something to improve productivity in your DC, don’t stress about taking on a giant, stressful project. Just take a small step by connecting with Mountain Leverage about Ascend, and let our team take on the front-to-end implementation of a flexible, efficient solution for you.
