Wireless industrial truck management has steadily become a best practice among Fortune 500 manufacturers, retailers, and other organizations with substantial material handling operations. However, since these types of systems still have relatively shallow market penetration, many companies have no point of reference to understand what they should consider when evaluating such systems for implementation.
This seminar will describe key characteristics of a wireless lift truck management system and review the variety of functions, IT architectures, and wireless options that are available to meet various requirements. Typical ROI scenarios for these types of systems will also be detailed.
