Power Up PickRight With PowerTools
Updated: November 2022
ProCat continues to provide customers with new solutions to improve warehouse operations.
PowerTools is a PC-based application that maximizes the benefit you get from PickRight. Think of PowerTools as a bridge between your ERP and PickRight. Pick shift supervisors and warehouse managers can utilize over a dozen different desktop utilities in PowerTools to replace manual processes happening alongside PickRight when picking orders.
PowerTools brings 15 features to strengthen picking operations:
- Picker Assignments – Assign specific customers to specific pickers, both one time and permanently

- Remote Approvals – Allows a supervisor to enable Manual Scanning and Out of Stocking for a single item for employees who are not authorized to perform those functions. Authorization can be done from the supervisors PC. Functionality can be enabled for one or all employees for a set period of time.
