Every business is (or should be) actively pursuing “Lean” practices in their operations. “Lean” can be defined as a management philosophy focusing on reduction of the seven wastes (over-production, waiting time, transportation, processing, inventory, motion and scrap) in an operation. By eliminating waste, quality is improved, and production time and cost are reduced. Lean principles work in EVERY industry — not just manufacturing. What industry is not interested in eliminating waste?
Here’s a simple question: How far do your employees have to travel (i.e. waste!) to enter transactions into your system, print or re-print a label, check stock, etc.? Companies with hefty IT budgets can spread equipment throughout the operation to minimize waste. But there’s a more cost effective solution that also improves efficiency: Mobile Powered Carts.
With a Mobile Powered Cart, employees can easily transport the appropriate necessary equipment to the transaction. Mobile Carts can be equipped with various size batteries depending on the equipment that will be powered. Properly selected batteries will easily last an 8 hour shift and recharge in 2-10 hours depending on the battery.
Mobile Powered Carts work in almost any industry or work setting: manufacturing, distribution, retail, health care, education and virtually any office environment. The mobile carts can be assembled in a matter of minutes and are virtually indestructible.
Get Lean! Walk around your operation and I guarantee you’ll find applications for mobile powered carts that will eliminate waste and provide a quick payback.
