Addressing Labor Needs

The Objective

Despite using RF and pick-to-light, the picking processes were complex and inefficient and overtime was common. In addition to suboptimal picking, work release was also highly manual and pickers would ultimately decide the sequence in which orders were picked, which sometimes caused items to ship late, among other issues. Apex sought an optimization solution that would help transform their complex processes.

Senior Director of Global Distribution

"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."
