Mobile devices are an easy way to access the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Microsoft understands the importance of mobility and digital transformation, creating a Warehouse app for Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations that gives employees access to tools that they need to do their jobs quickly and efficiently, on devices they use.
Here are three reasons to utilize mobile devices in your warehouse:
- Easy to learn. Most people already have their own personal mobile devices that they interact with on a daily basis. The new Warehousing app is designed for use on Windows 10 or Android or iOS devices, giving users an intuitive interface that they’re used to seeing, making it easy to know exactly where to tap to get what you want.
- Real-time access to data for all users in the organization. Using mobile devices connected to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations means that any change a user makes is immediately reflected across the system. Incoming shipments can be instantly identified and automatically verified using RFID tags and scanners. Inventory can be updated with a few screen taps. Users can have updated visibility to all the information they need without a complicated, physical paper trail.
- Efficient operations. New software is designed to take advantage of built-in mobile device features like the GPS, camera, and microphone. Voila—your user’s mobile device just became a scanner. Hands full? Take advantage of the device’s voice-to-text abilities.
