Lucas Systems Expands European Presence, Adding Development and Support Staff in the U.K.
COO Jeff Slevin Is Heading Lucas Systems’ European Expansion To Support Customer Requests For Implementation and Support Services
Lucas Systems, Inc., the leading innovator of warehouse productivity solutions for mobile workers and distribution center managers, today announced the expansion of its European operations to better support existing partners and customers, and to grow its install base of Jennifer™ VoicePlus users throughout Europe. Jeffrey Slevin, Chief Operating Office of Lucas, has relocated to the U.K. to head up the expansion of Lucas Systems EMEA, with offices in High Wycombe. Jennifer, the Lucas solution for voice picking and other warehouse operations, supports all major European languages.
“Our long-term plans for global growth are driven by market and customer pull,” said Slevin. “In addition to existing European partners, like Dastronic in Belgium, that have already installed Jennifer solutions for their customers, we have a number of global customers that are expanding their use of Jennifer voice solutions to new facilities in Europe. We believe that a local implementation and support presence is key to providing partners and customers the innovative solutions, industry-best implementation services, and world-class support that are the hallmarks of our success in North America.”
He adds: “Voice is widely-recognized as a best practice for improving warehouse operations throughout Europe. In addition to warehouses adopting voice for the first time, many existing voice picking systems are nearing their end-of-life. Many of those existing voice users are looking for alternatives that provide operational value above and beyond legacy voice-only systems running on proprietary hardware. For those companies, Jennifer VoicePlus provides an optimal solution that combines next-generation application capabilities that are supported on a growing array of powerful, cost-effective hardware platforms – including standard, rugged mobile computers and next-generation wearable devices.”
