Third party logistics (3PLs) providers are faced with heightened picking requirements during the holiday season. Frequently there is an increase of more than 50% in picking between October and December than the other nine months of the year.
While most Pick-to-Light solutions often sale scalability as a feature, advantage, and benefit, most 3PLs may find themselves with a reduced need for Pick-to-Lights after the holiday season. For the first time, there is a solution which permits downward scalability. 3PLs using Voodoo Robotics pay-as-you-go Pick-to-Lights lease precisely the number of lights required each month. As vendors increase, 3PLs can adjust lights accordingly; as they decrease, fewer lights can be leased. This unique value proposition, is the first of its kind in the materials handling sector.
About Voodoo Robotics:
Voodoo Robotics, (http://voodoorobotics.com) the leading innovator in picking warehouse automation, provides cost-effective technology for warehouse inventory management and order fulfillment solutions. With engineering and robotic expertise, the Texas-based pioneer brings the next wave of state-of-the-art automation to material handling industries.
Voodoo offers a unique lease-based Pick-to-Light system designed to modernize warehouse operations by leveraging the latest IIoT (Industrial Internet-of-Things) technology. The picking hardware integrates effortlessly with existing WMS (Warehouse Management Systems), or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems allowing distribution centers, warehouses, and 3PLs (third party logistics) to scale operations, only paying for the lights needed each month. This revolutionary approach to leasing Pick-to-Light devices on a month-to-month, pay-as-you-go basis avoids long-term commitments and costly up-front fees.
A companion product, SKU-Keeper Inventory Management, is designed for warehouses that do not have an existing WMS or ERP system. Emphasizing simplicity and easy-of-use, the cloud software is also leased on a low-cost, low-risk month-to-month basis.
The company also provides smart, ROI (return-on-investment) driven Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) with an innovative 3D user interface, compatible with Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari. The robotic systems are designed, simulated and run, all using a Warehouse Descriptive Language (WDL), a concept invented by the company.
All of Voodoo Robotics products are patented or patent-pending. Currently the company is attracting best-practice, lean manufacturing focused, systems integrators throughout North America. The company is a proud member of MHI. Follow Voodoo Robotics on Twitter at @VoodooRobotics or at LinkedIn at
