Watch this webinar by Lucas Systems and Logistics Manager to learn about how to improve picking times and drive efficiency using AI-based software.

Learn a faster way to reduce picking hours by 50% with AI-based travel optimisation software. The investment of money and time to deploy conventional automation solutions can be prohibitive and complicated. Adopting smart software solutions can be a more practical, affordable and efficient way to resolving your labour challenges.

Lucas Systems has introduced an AI-based software solution, called Dynamic Work Optimisation that reduces in-warehouse worker travel by 30-50 percent. This software-based solution can be implemented and delivering results in just a few months. Dynamic Work Optimisation has allowed customers to more than double picking productivity and cut labour hours in half without making any changes to their warehouse layout or adding expensive automation or robotics.

During this session, participants learned:

1. Effective strategies to overcome significant travel-related hurdles faced by workers in the DC.

2. The shortcomings associated with conventional WMS-directed batching and pick sequencing methods.

3. How adopting intelligent batching, path optimisation, and dynamic prioritization techniques can transform the productivity and efficiency of your DC staff.
