DIRECTED PICKING

Optimizing the worker to gain higher productivity and speed

We have a long history in the warehouse business. It’s where we got our in-depth understanding of what it takes to deliver world-class e-commerce fulfillment. It’s also where we learned, first-hand, how robotics makes it all work.

Locus’s innovative Directed Picking technology optimizes worker productivity by actively directing workers to their next pick location. Directed Picking removes unproductive roaming or patrolling of aisles.

Workers are visually guided to their next closest pick opportunity, reducing lost time for repetitive, workflow decision-making and eliminating unproductive walk time.

Workers set their own picking pace for higher pick rates

Directed Picking lets workers pick at their own pace, eliminating the limitations of slower-paced motorized robotic cart systems or pushing heavy manual carts. Workers walk less, are able to stay on task, and generate significantly higher UPH and LPH rates.

Order picking that’s intuitive, natural, and simple

The LocusBot clear user interface makes picking easier and faster. The easy-to-read, intuitive graphics and task prompts guide workers through the entire pick process. By actively directing them to the precise location of their next pick, workers spend more time picking and less time walking.

Integrated, multi-language display

LocusBot improves picking accuracy even more by automatically switching the on-screen language to match each worker’s preference. There’s significantly less training needed for new, temporary, and seasonal workers, letting everyone be productive almost immediately.
