Veeqo Launches VS1 Warehouse Scanner
Marketplace management tool Veeqo has announced a new hardware scanner for use in ecommerce fulfillment warehouses.
The "VS1" scanner promises to provide Amazon-style logistics capabilities for retail businesses of all sizes. The scanner is directly linked to software that lets online retailers manage a high volume of ecommerce orders from multiple sales channels and marketplaces, bringing enterprise-level warehouse operations at a fraction of the cost.
The device was developed after Veeqo CEO, Matt Warren, experienced how difficult it was picking and shipping orders while operating his own ecommerce business, Jura Watches. Jura turned over £60m selling luxury watches online and Matt wanted to do something to make simplified high level warehouse systems accessible to retail businesses of all sizes.
The VS1 Scanner is built around three core functions to help make retailers run as efficient a warehouse operation as possible:
- Booking in stock
- Accurate order picking
- Faster, paperless stock taking
The scanner has a battery that lasts for 10 hours of constant scanning, is fully charged within 3 hours, automatically updates with new features and fixes, has a pistol-style scan button, and offers free replacement if it breaks from non-accidental damage.
Veeqo CEO Matt Warren said: "I'm really proud to unveil the VS1 Scanner - a device we've built specifically to help ecommerce retailers get products to their customers quicker than ever before."
