Jennifer™ orchestrates and communicates with people, robots, automation and IT systems via standard users and system interfaces.
Jennifer™ communicates with workers and managers through mobile applications and a web-based management console.
Jennifer™ communicates with workers through the Lucas mobile application running on the mobile device of your choice. The user interface combines voice direction (Jennifer™ voice), speech recognition, scanning, display and RFID. Jennifer™ includes industry-best speech recognition that uses dual speech engines and deep neural network technology providing optimal performance.
Jennifer™ communicates with managers through the Lucas management console which provides managers real-time visibility and control of operations. Beyond monitoring operations, managers can manage workers and work in process, and update rules, settings and configurations.
Jennifer™ communicates with robots to coordinate work amongst robots and humans simultaneously – providing flexibility, scalability and efficiency.
For example, while Jennifer™ orchestrates and optimizes within picking zones, a DC can add robots for conveyance between pick zones or other staging locations. This can further reduce worker travel to and from fixed drop off or induction points. Likewise, Jennifer™ can be used to optimize the travel of robots for full pallet moves, both in inbound and outbound operations.
Jennifer™ combines current operational data with historical data to improve analysis, planning, and decision-making across a network of DCs and within a single facility. Executives, regional directors and managers can view real-time dashboards incorporating charts, graphs and other visualizations of their data.
Jennifer™ communicates with automation, WMS, TMS, and other systems via standard system interfaces that make integration fast and flexible.
We helped Apex Tool Group, a leading manufacturer of hand and power tools, operate with 10% fewer man hours.
“You rarely implement a new system and have users tell you ‘It’s made my life so much easier!’ Making the processes better for associates makes them more productive. And that’s better for the business.”
-Chris Rufa, Senior Director of Global Distribution
We helped Pet Supermarket, a leading pet supply retailer, increase throughput by 33%.
“This was the smoothest implementation of any technology I have been involved with in my 28 years.”

This paper helps you choose amongst rugged smartphones, wearables, and warehouse bricks and guns.
The Warehouse Optimization Suite is based on thousands of person-years of operations experience in hundreds of DCs. The suite features Jennifer™, the brain, voice, and orchestration engine that drives performance improvement gains. Jennifer™ incorporates a variety of AI, machine learning and other decision making technologies that are used to optimize and orchestrate DC operations.
