Ace Endico – Foodservice Distribution
“As a byproduct of our productivity gains with Lucas we have been able to increase our shipping volumes with the same number of workers. In addition, we have dramatically reduced re-ships due to picking errors, which saves us time and money, while improving customer satisfaction.”
Baptist Health South Florida – Healthcare
“What it used to take 12-14 people to pick in one shift, we can now do with 8-10 people. The previous average picking rate in the LUM area was 50-56 lines per hour (LPH). Today it is 100-110. That is a 100% improvement, and in bulk picking, the number is about 20 percent.”
“If anyone is looking to keep their current system of record for inventory, the Lucas solutions lets you do that. We got 70% of what we wanted in a new WMS with Lucas, but at 1/8 of the cost.”
The Container Store – Retail and eFulfillment
“Distribution Center employees preferred Jennifer’s human voice, the easy, five minute voice training process, and the rich voice-enabled help functions. We also liked the ability to tailor what the user hears, not just for ease of use and efficiency, but also to keep things fun and interesting. Since installing the Lucas solution in September we’ve seen steady increases in picking productivity, in addition to a sharp reduction in training time for new employees.”
Do it Best Corp. – Retail
“Under our old paper labeling system it could take 90 to 120 days [for new workers] to reach our productivity standards. We now see that happen in as little as two to three weeks…”
Eby-Brown – Convenience Distribution
“The Lucas system has delivered better-than-expected gains in picking productivity and accuracy, but the back story at Eby-Brown is how it made our transition to SAP WM invisible to workers on the warehouse floor … equally important, the Lucas system gives us additional flexiblity to optimize picking assignments outside of the WMS. This has recently allowed us to increase our shipping volumes without making any additional capital investments in our DCs.”
“Far and away, it’s the best decision I ever made and the best product I ever brought in. This thing paid for itself in less than a year.”
Imperial Distributors – Non-Food Grocery Distributor
“Our productivity and accuracy gains exceeded our goals, and the people at Lucas justified our trust in them in the first place.” Learn how Imperial modernized their DC operations without upgrading their legacy warehouse management system.
Marcone Supply – Industrial/B2B Distribution
“Lucas integrated seamlessly with our WMS, practically eliminated downtime in receiving, and increased our shipping capacity by 50%. It’s totally revolutionized our warehouse operations.”
Pet Supermarket – Retail
“Any time our picking volume exceeded about 45,000 pieces per day we would have overtime, and new store openings added to the overtime. With Lucas we can do more than 60,000 pieces without overtime.”
“In less than two weeks we had the whole warehouse running up and running. This was the smoothest implementation of any technology I have been involved with in my 28 years.”
Resnick Distributors – Convenience Distribution
“The Lucas solution has had a profound effect on our business, both from the perspective of front line managers as well as our hourly workers.”
Rotary Corporation – Parts Distribution
Lucas Mobile Work Execution helped Rotary achieve new daily and monthly shipping records while improving accuracy and achieving 99.9% same-day shipping rates on all orders received by 4 PM.
Sinelco – Health and Beauty/B2B Distribution
“Some of our workers are picking twice as fast as they were with RF. And they prefer having a conversation with Jennifer. She helps them do their jobs better, and work is more fun and less monotonous. Initial training and start up was also faster than anything I have ever seen.”
Upper Lakes Foods – Foodservice Distribution
“I was skeptical that a voice system could deliver better accuracy than an RF barcode-scanning system, but our results prove the clear advantages of voice for improving accuracy and efficiency. We are already seeing dramatic accuracy gains, and we are only getting started. During the ramp up of voice we have not emphasized picking rates, but we have seen productivity gains every week, and we are already exceeding our pre-voice picking rates.”
