What is Pick-to-light?
DPS (Digital Picking System), also known as Pick-To-Light, is a system that combines a computer and Light Modules to support the picking/picking process in all warehouses/factories. Staff just need to move to the place where the Modules are lit/flashing and pick the correct number shown. This simplifies the steps in the process and makes it easy for any employee, new or old, to do it quickly, easily and efficiently.
