Forbes Contributor Carsten Funke of Picavi Talks Importance of Vision-as-a-Service for Warehouses

Carsten Funke, CEO at Picavi USA, the leader in pick-by-vision technology, is a frequent contributor to Forbes. Two of his highly read articles include Not All ‘As A Service’ Offers Are Equal where he warns all “as a service” offers are not equal.

According to Funke, the best practices for companies using a solution-as-as-service are varied and no single methodology is best. “In fact, until recently pick-by-vision was not offered as Vision-as-a-Service (VaaS). VaaS is the newest entrant in this paradigm for wearables in the logistics space. Our management team felt that would help make the technology more accessible.”

In the second article, Navigating The Challenges Of Holiday Restocking he discussed holiday restocking challenges and the need for best practice picking. Funke noted, “When warehouse and distribution centers are set up, particularly for fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), the 80-20 rule applies. Specifically, picks can be organized to ensure the velocity and frequency of items ordered are arranged reducing walk time, physical strain (reaching for product), and rapid shipping,”

Funke is a proud member of the Forbes Business Council, an invitation-only organization for successful business leaders and executives who are selected for the council based on the depth and diversity of experience in the business development space.

Current vs. Future State of Warehouse Picking

Whether warehouse or distribution center, the current state of picking remains problematic. These challenges grow more serious as picking migrates to e-retail fulfillment. The metrics and justification of Google Glasses, as a picking methodology, must include a constant, iterative, and continuous process improvement system. This requirement defines the future state of warehouse picking; only Picavi is ready to meet the future state today.

Picavi USA Pick-by-Vision solution makes it possible to visually manage the picking process for goods in intralogistics in a consistent manner. Picavi’s Cockpit uses artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and digital twin technology as a breakthrough innovation, maximizing productivity at warehouses and minimizing error rates. Only with this Smart Data technology are e-fulfillment solutions possible, transcending the initial value proposition of Google Glasses.
