Robotics automation to deliver robust, scalable solution for high-volume healthcare fulfilment centers
Concordance Healthcare Solutions LLC, one of the largest, independent healthcare distributors in the U.S., and Locus Robotics, the leader in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) for fulfillment warehouses, announces that Concordance has chosen Locus as its primary AMR technology to support high-volume order fulfillment for the healthcare industry.
“Our partnership with Locus Robotics will help bring even greater efficiencies to our warehouses, help control costs and enhance the productivity of our employees,” said Keith Price, Concordance CIO. “Locus’s flexibility, seamless scalability and fast ROI will enhance our ability to scale to serve the rapidly growing needs of our customers and the patient healthcare facilities they support.”
The Locus solution is integrated with Concordance’s warehouse distribution network, providing a scalable and flexible solution to optimize productivity in the order fulfillment process to significantly increase throughput and lower order cycle times. LocusBots significantly reduce unproductive walking time, eliminate maneuvering heavy manual carts through warehouses and lower the overall physical demands on employees, while improving ergonomics and overall workplace quality.
“Locus’s innovative multi-bot approach, dynamic flexibility, scalability and fast ROI will help Concordance to consistently exceed their customers’ expectations,” said Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics. “Our LocusBots are designed to improve all aspects of a warehouse picking, sorting and returns while seamlessly meeting the increased demand of medical supplies and other healthcare needs.”
Following initial deployment at the Tiffin, Ohio warehouse, Concordance is now in the process of rolling out the Locus solution to 10 additional sites within the USA.
