Optimize the Most Important Processes in Your Warehouse

The Warehouse Optimization Suite is based on thousands of person-years of operations experience in hundreds of DCs. The suite features Jennifer™, the brain, voice, and orchestration engine that drives performance improvement gains. Jennifer™ incorporates a variety of AI, machine learning and other decision making technologies that are used to optimize and orchestrate DC operations.

What Makes Us Different?

For the last 23 years, hundreds of warehouses worldwide have been transformed using Lucas solutions. Every optimization solution incorporates smart software, flexible technologies and a consultative implementation approach led by warehouse optimization experts.

To help you maximize your current and DC infrastructure, Jennifer™ includes:
• Intelligent multi-modal workflows combining voice, vision, scanning, and RFID
• Dynamic, AI-based batch and path optimization
• Advanced task interleaving
• Waveless work release and continuous order streaming.
• Real-time visibility of resources, workflow, exceptions.
• Advanced work planning and orchestration across manual and automated systems.
• Predictive analytics for inventory and labor management.

To help you continuously adapt to ever-changing demands, Jennifer™ includes:
• UI and data capture on any Android mobile or wearable device
• Configurable assignment and work creation
• Seamless integration with robotics and your existing WMS, ERP, automation systems
• Leverage previous IT and automation investments, minimizes implementation costs, risks, and time
• On premises or in the cloud

We make the extra effort to find hidden improvement opportunities other providers might miss, and we actively look for creative optimization solutions to deliver the best possible results for your distribution center. We're built on:

• 23+ years of accumulated operations expertise, user experience design, and DC process innovation.
• Two decades of innovation in applying next generation technologies in DCs.
• Consultative implementation approach led by warehouse optimization experts.

Real world results

We helped Baptist Health, a leading healthcare provider, double picking productivity.

“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.”

-Dale Adamson, AVP of Logistics and Distribution

Baptist Health South Florida
Apex Tool Group

We helped Apex Tool Group, a leading manufacturer of hand and power tools, operate with 10% fewer man hours.

“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.”

-Chris Rufa, Senior Director of Global Distribution
