Reduce Labor Costs and Grow Profits By Working Smarter, Not Harder
Did you know that with a conventional static shelving storage system your workers spend the majority of their time traveling around your facility searching for parts to pick? In fact they spend more time traveling than receiving instructions, waiting, logging transactions, and picking combined. So how do you reduce the labor costs of traveling to pick parts so you can grow profits? Fortunately, there is a solution: Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems. Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems bring stored parts directly to the worker, almost eliminating travel and search time commonly associated with static shelving systems. These automated systems allow workers to perform at a much higher level of productivity so you can reduce labor costs and grow profits. (watch video of Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems)
Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems Reduce Labor Costs by Increasing Productivity
With Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems, one worker can handle the same picking volume as several workers picking from static shelving systems. This reason is because automated storage systems reduce travel and search time while increasing picking accuracy. Pick lists can even be interfaced with the machines, automatically bringing parts to the worker with LED lights flashing and pointing to where to pick parts from and how many to pick.
Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems will work great in situations when labor is scarce or unreliable. Also, many facilities are choosing to increase picking productivity and accuracy with their current labor levels. (Click here to request an estimate on Automated Storage Systems for your business)
