Cantaloupe Inc., a digital payments and software services company that provides end-to-end technology solutions to power self-service commerce, announced its newest product, Seed Pick Easy, at the 2023 National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) Show in Atlanta.
Seed Pick Easy is a tablet-based warehouse picking system designed to deliver time and operational cost savings to operators of all sizes. It is a cloud-based plug-and-play solution that integrates with an operator’s vending management software (VMS) to generate digital pick lists, so pickers can pre-kit faster.
“We developed Seed Pick Easy to eliminate paper pick lists, reduce human error, and better organize warehouses,” Gaurav Singal, CTO of Cantaloupe Inc., said in the announcement. “One of the biggest advantages of Seed Pick Easy over competitor solutions is that it is an entirely cloud-based technology solution. Operators can deploy Seed Pick Easy without disrupting their current processes, and they can scale the solution rapidly as their warehouse capacity grows.”
To get started, Seed Pick Easy requires only a Wi-Fi connection and an operator’s product information to be set up in their current management software. It currently integrates with Cantaloupe’s Seed and Cantaloupe Go (formerly Three Square Market) platforms, with plans to offer additional integrations in the future.
Operators can generate digital pick lists to send to their Seed Pick Easy tablets in the warehouse and assign pickers up to eight orders at a time. Pickers then move from product to product, based on what’s showing on the tablet screen, rather than keeping track of printed pick lists. All product quantity changes made on the Seed Pick Easy tablet automatically sync back into their management software so operators can maintain accurate warehouse inventory levels.
Tony Danna, vice president and general manager of Three Square Market division of Cantaloupe Inc., added in the announcement: “We designed Seed Pick Easy for customers who are looking for a cost-effective and easy-to-use warehouse picking system. Seed Pick Easy can cut picking time in half compared to warehouses with no current picking solution, and we are excited about how this technology will allow our operators to transform their warehouse picking processes and realize significant time and cost savings.”
