John D. Johnson, Pitman Creek Wholesale COO of Danville, KY recently discussed how Warehouse Mobile Solutions’ WarehouseOS was able to customize their expanding needs.
Becoming better is a never-ending process, so the company is consistently looking for opportunities to help manage the processes better. This is why WarehouseOS was the right choice. Pitman Creek can continue to customize the system to work for them. Pitman Creek identified the following improved metrics:
- Picks per minute per operator from less than 6 to some now achieving as high as 10 ppm (over 600 picks per hour).
- Daily fill rates (orders shipped same day) from 84% to over 92%.
- Output pieces per minute for the overall facility increased from mid-50 range on average to over 100 as of late – an increase of over 90% – 6,000 pieces per hour with less people on the clock.
Pitman Creek, located in Danville, Kentucky, services over 1,000 dealers in 46 states and several foreign countries. Selling only to stocking dealers, Pitman Creek specializes in the bass market, providing its dealers with leading edge products, hard to find special color items, and proven favorites. Pitman Creek currently stocks over 21,000 items from over 240 vendors.
