HOJ Innovations, the parent company to WarehouseOS, conducts a thorough evaluation process of how labor is utilized to receive and ship product and has found in hundreds of e-commerce operations. According to Tim Hoj, CEO of Hoj Innovations, reducing warehouse labor costs is often a matter of small adjustments and process improvements to existing operations. Continuous process improvement reduces warehouse labor costs while achieving enhanced productivity goals, increased production, and a significant reduction in warehouse operation expenses.
Instead of adding more warehouse labor, increase picking efficiency by 100 percent, reduce errors, speed up returns, and reduce training times to fifteen minutes or less. More labor is not the answer. Less labor is the solution with tools that allow existing warehouse labor to be maximally productive.
Hoj Innovations walks through customers’ warehouses (a Gemba walk part of a kaizen event) from one end of the facility to the other. Observing the operation with “fresh eyes” (and fifty years of warehousing experience) allows some of the “obvious” opportunities for improvement to be revealed quickly.
By diagramming existing (and potentially new or revised) processes a documented walk and inspection assessment allows a thorough evaluation for keeping labor cost under control. 3PLs, warehouses, and distribution centers, often ask Hoj Innovations to return twice a year to conduct warehouse evaluations.

WarehouseOS (https://warehousemobilesolutions.com), a new tablet-based Warehouse Operations System brings warehouses into the future today. Warehouse management systems have been around for a long time with too many companies still using the RF gun to conduct inventory management, scan in new items, and pick orders. The RF gun solutions typically cost double what modern solutions offer. WarehouseOS and associated apps have been developed to make everything about the warehouse easier and better. Apps allow small or large companies to receive products, manage inventory, perform cycle counting, conduct single picks or do batch picking, verify items picked and pack them into boxes.
A team of experts in material handling equipment and solutions developed WarehouseOS to maximize the throughput of warehousing and distributing facilities. From small eCommerce, to high volume SKU facilities, from omni-channel companies to FMCG (fast moving consumer goods), WarehouseOS is equipped to handle everything. From small startups with simple needs to complex, large distribution centers, WarehouseOS is the tablet solution which enables manufacturers and distribution centers to be a step ahead of the competition.
