Challenge: An online boutique for monogrammed and personalized items needed to triple its workforce to meet peak-season demand. Management wrestled with maintaining perfect order accuracy and speedy fulfillment while scaling up labor.
Solution: Locus Robotics worked with the retailer for nine weeks to deploy 25 warehouse bots, train personnel and integrate its solution into an existing warehouse management system (WMS).
Results: After a smooth integration, the retailer tripled its pick rate — virtually eliminating errors — and easily managed its Black-Friday and Cyber-Monday demand increases. Worker productivity improved, turnover slowed, and new seasonal employees could start almost immediately thanks to simple training and user interface.
