Warehouse Control System Helps Company Master Rapid Growth

Challenge: Paper-based systems can still meet some distribution center needs, but in general, they do not support rapid growth successfully. When our client was experiencing strong growth and needed assistance to increase throughput and productivity, we studied their current environment, and, coupled with data analyses of where they wanted to be and would have to be in the coming months and years to meet their business goals, recommended a retrofit of a store fulfillment system.

Solution: This retrofit converted the previously manual environment to an automated one and heavily leveraged the capabilities of our Automation Director® Warehouse Control System software (WCS), addressing the fulfillment challenges with technology.

Results: A simulation module of the WCS allowed for concepts to be stress tested and validated prior to implementation, saving time and investment dollars. Productivity increased by 10% while staffing needs were reduced by half, even while fulfillment requirements increased by 100 stores.
