FutureDial Launches Breakthrough Solution for Efficient Mobile Device Refurbishing

FutureDial | January 30, 2023 | Read time : 02:01 min


FutureDial has released SMART Receive, a way for warehouses to process used mobile devices quickly and easily. The system moves tasks related to receiving to a single station where information about the device is recorded and processing is done. This cuts down on bottlenecks in the receiving and routing processes and makes the workflow more efficient.

SMART Receive works with FutureDial's other automation solutions. It automates tasks that used to be done by hand and uses dynamic workflow guidance to save time and cut down on mistakes. By automating these processes, SMART Receive makes receiving and routing a more streamlined process.

Angel Anderson, Product Solution Manager, FutureDial SMART Receive, said, "SMART Receive brings together all the separate receiving tasks into a single, more efficient station and takes away the guesswork, guiding the receiving staff in performing their tasks." She added, "The system helps consolidate the order-of-operation workflow in receiving and directs staff on which tasks to prioritize and when to perform them." She added further, "Formerly repetitive tasks are aggregated into more efficient sequences for staff to perform, which saves time, effort, and money."

The solution is seen as a game-changer for the industry because it makes it easier and more profitable to refurbish warehouses to handle more devices. With SMART Receive, warehouses can save time and money while making sure orders are correct and keeping up with growing customer needs. This makes it easier for businesses to manage the complexity of warehouse operations and meet customers' demands for faster delivery.
