What is QikPik?
Pick walking is the most time-consuming and expensive part of picking within warehouse operations.
Fujitsu and Hatmill – the UK’s leading supply chain and logistics consultants – have developed a WMS SaaS plug-in which reduces pick-walking distance.
This is achieved through re-sequencing trollies and re-routing the pick-walk in the most optimal manner by considering all possible permutations from your live WMS data.
QikPik is powered by Fujitsu’s world-leading quantum-inspired digital technology architecture. With just 20 warehouse order picks potentially resulting in 2.4 quintillion combinatorial options.
QikPik has the power to overcome the conventional compute limitations of warehouse management systems to calculate every trolley individually, finding the absolute optimum sequence and route in seconds.
Many UK warehouses are seeing a c. 20-40% reduction in pick walk distance with QikPik
Is QikPik applicable to my warehouse?
QikPik is a WMS plug-in that is compatible with Manhattan, Blue Yonder, Reflex and many other WMSs through a simple API integration.
It can be applied to a variety of picking types; batch, order, retail, eComm, one-way, two-way, manual, LLOP etc.
