Imperial Distributors serves 3500 supermarkets and other retail stores throughout the Northeastern United States, supplying a wide range of health, beauty and wellness products, general merchandise, seasonal and other non-food grocery items.
The Lucas Work Execution System at Imperial integrates with a legacy JD Edwards WMS from Oracle. The Lucas solution has dramatically improved productivity and given managers better insight and control over operations. To keep pace with continued growth, the company has moved into a new state-of-the-art DC and is outfitting new employees with Lucas Move running on ruggedized Android smartphones. Lucas Move, featuring Jennifer voice, makes work easier, faster and better for experienced associates and those who are brand-new to the DC.
According to Perry Lundberg, VP of Supply Chain, “The Lucas software makes us stronger as a company, but it’s also been a tremendous asset to supervisors, managers and hourly associates, helping them do their jobs better.”
