Improve Warehouse Accuracy and Reduce Labor Costs
What is Vision QA?
Vision QA is designed to eliminate mis-picks, verify the product in single bottle pick cases, verify shipping labels automatically, and verify product to truck lanes. The system is adaptable to an existing conveyor system. Vision QA is a recent addition to an existing conveyor at United Distributors, Inc in Smyrna, GA. The system also assumed sortation from the existing system, which only read barcodes. Every carton’s top and side image is recorded and attached to the invoice.
24/7 Encompass Remote Monitoring
Encompass monitors system function 24/7 with real people. Make changes after install.
Eliminate Foot Pedals
WCS will automate merges currently controlled by foot pedals. The merge can be automated with applied labels or image recognition.
Replace application of labels to cases with Pick-to-Light or Voice Pick. Image recognition identifies and sorts each case.
Replace manual or operator sortation with automatic sortation. Sortation is available for label applied applications or label-less applications.

Control All Conveyor and Automation Equipment
Replace or upgrade old PLC logic. Logic upgrades allows flexibility of control. Change or replace function of pick lines. Smooth case flow and jams. Control everything from a single pane of glass.
Vision QA uses barcode scanning, pattern recognition, and image capture to make sure the right label is on the product. When a discrepancy is found, the case is recirculated back into stock. Invoices can be edited in real-time, and products can be back ordered to make sure the delivery truck’s inventory is accurate.
All cases are documented and attached to each invoice. During truck return, each case image is easily retrieved on the handheld. Drivers are held accountable for product that leaves the warehouse.
