Leveraging Mobile Apps With Microsoft Dynamics ERP in the Supply Chain
With most warehouse employees already toting around some type of mobile device, it just makes sense that applications would find their way into this sector of the supply chain. And while warehouse-wide mobile application implementations aren't highly publicized, it's not hard to see the tools' applicability within the distribution center.
Kimberly Knickle, practice director at IDC Manufacturing Insights in Framingham, Mass., says mobile apps are a hot topic for manufacturers right now and points out that the proliferation of mobile devices in the supply chain has been high over the last two years. Knickle says tablets, mini tablets, and Internet-equipped smart phones have worked their way into the four walls of the warehouse.
