The order consolidation sub-system reduces shipping costs as well as improves customer goodwill (one carton, not multiple cartons, arrives at the customer’s door).
Voice-directed picking supports high order accuracy. Operator productivity is 20% higher when compared to
RF or paper-directed methods.

Workstations can be taken in and out of service depending on daily volume. A second level pick module can be added to support future growth.
