Integrated putaway delivers true task interleaving
Get true task-interleaving functionality and increased productivity without increasing labor costs. Locus Putaway functionality enables workers to maximize productivity by simultaneously picking orders, managing returns, and replenishing the pick space using the same robotic technology.
The result is a highly efficient, cost-effective, and continuous picking and restocking process that maximizes the worker’s productivity and efficiency.
Efficiently manage and restock returns
The Locus system is ideal for handling labor-intensive returns and restocking through true task interleaving. LocusBots take the disparate return items back into the warehouse, eliminating extra restocking labor time to dramatically increase worker efficiency .
Higher productivity, less aisle traffic and lower labor costs
Locus Putaway improves productivity by eliminating the need for separate costly, dedicated replenishment/restocking teams and the associated extra labor costs currently found with inefficient, aisle-clogging, cart-based approaches.
LocusBots’ multi-functionality also eliminates the need for extra picking and replenishment carts that lead to aisle congestion that further slow down worker productivity.
More efficient use of worker resources
Staffing flexibility minimizes overtime labor costs and delivers higher productivity levels for maximum efficiency in the picking space.
Locus’s true task interleaving lets workers become cross-trained for multiple roles, dramatically improving their productivity, and enabling them to get more work done throughout the day. Locus eliminates the need for separate picking and putaway teams, or overnight replenishment teams found in cart-based systems.
