Warehouse Voice Productivity...Simplified
CASE STUDY: VF Corporation
ROI Compliance for Small to Mid-Size Warehouse Operations
VF Corporation (VF) is a leading wearing apparel manufacturer for clothing brands such as Lee Jeans, Wrangler, Nautica and North Face. The company chose Vangard's Mobile Voice Platform to voice-power its high performance custom-built Ultra Picking and Static Picking applications.
Before adopting the Vangard Voice device-based voice solution, this VF location assessed leading server-dependent solutions and found the substantial investment and lengthy ROI could not deliver a sufficient increase in productivity for their already extremely efficient WMS. According to the warehouse operations leader, "the productivity payoff was simply not high enough to justify implementing a complex server-based IT voice layer to our already highly efficient existing WMS system".
But with Vangard's device-based Universal Voice Utility they projected additional productivity gains of at least 8%, with a short ROI, a faster, more efficient distribution cycle, and substantial cost savings.
Because of Vangard's simplified voice-enabling solution, its effectiveness and affordability, these two applications are in production and are being piloted at other VF Corporation distribution centers supporting VF Corporation's wearing apparel divisions.
