Due to rapidly changing consumer shopping trends, SCI’s clients were experiencing significant e-commerce volume increases. Combined with labour challenges and increasing real estate costs, SCI wanted to look for alternative solutions to increase productivity while still meeting SLAs. Guided by its principles of ‘embracing change’ and ‘adapting for the future’ SCI sought investments in automation to better serve their clients and add value to their business.
SCI partnered with Attabotics to implement a goods-to-person (GTP) automation system that offers greater productivity while maximizing warehouse space. The ergonomic solution is a next generation automated storage and retrieval solution (ASRS) that saves on space, labour costs, and time. The high density, scalable micro-fulfillment center dramatically increased the units picked per hour by 65% while reducing warehouse space by 70%. SCI's successful partnership with Attabotics enabled efficiency gains, improved ergonomics, and increased pick accuracy.
Attabotics was able to efficiently increase SCI’s overall order efficiency and output, while also maximizing their space within existing facilities by implementing the 3D robotic automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS). This partnership has provided a valuable automation solution and has allowed the SCI organization to become more efficient compared to the manual picking process.
