“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.”
“The big change is that the Lucas system drives user behavior and activities, and the simplicity and consistency of the process across all areas makes it better for associates. In general, simpler processes are the ones people can follow the best.”
“You rarely implement a new system and have users tell you ‘It’s made my life so much easier.‘ Making the process better for associates makes them more productive. And that’s better for the business.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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 up and running. This was the smoothest implementation of any technology I have been involved with in my 28 years.”
“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.”
