This is how you’re going to get customer orders out the door from now on.
It’s arrived. Ship orders faster, more efficiently and more accurately with technology built on warehouse insight and first-hand experience. Locus is excited to unveil the world’s first robotic fulfillment solution built by warehouse people for warehouse people.
For retailers and manufacturers of premium-branded products, Locus Robotics offers an outbound picking solution that improves warehouse labor productivity 5-8 times over traditional cart based methods. Save time. Save money. And simply pick faster.
Collaborative, autonomous robots that just work
LocusBots™ work collaboratively with your workers, helping them deliver higher throughput and improved accuracy. They move autonomously to where the workers are, minimizing worker walking and removing drudge work.
LocusBots automatically learn the most efficient travel routes through your warehouse, to dramatically improve worker efficiency and productivity 2x to 5x over traditional cart picking. Our zone-based system allows for hands-free picking, while virtually eliminating errors.
LocusBot’s flexible design allows it to be configured to meet a wide range of tote and multi-bin picking needs, matching virtually any fulfillment requirement. Its lightweight design allows them to safely operate closely alongside workers and even in mezzanine configurations. Worker training is as simple as pick, touch, and go using LocusBot’s user-friendly, easy to read, touch pad-based user interface. It automatically detects a wide range of workers’ languages to speed workflow and minimize errors, changing instantly as it interacts with each worker. The on-board, integrated scanner confirms the correct item and ensures near 100% accuracy for both pick and put operations.
Easy WMS integration with infinite scalability
LocusServer™ makes it easy to integrate with your warehouse management or warehouse control system.
Using available APIs and simple, custom integrations, LocusServer seamlessly connects to all WMS systems such as Manhattan, JDA, High Jump, and UPP.
LocusServer links directly to each LocusBot via a secure wi-fi link, instantly transmitting complete warehouse inventory status and item locations, and coordinating efficient travel paths for each LocusBot to dramatically speed and maximize productivity and throughput.
The entire system is infinitely scalable, letting you easily respond to peak periods and volume increases by simply adding more LocusBots. LocusServer receives orders directly from your WMS and, once completed, instantly transmitting confirmations and performance data back to the system in real-time. LocusServer compiles up-to-date performance and optimization information of what’s happening in the warehouse, instantly sharing it with all newly-deployed robots, ensuring consistency, improving pick rates, and order accuracy.
Insightful, real-time reporting of your warehouse operations and worker productivity.
LocusView helps you stay on top of the key metrics that make your operation flow. Fully integrated with your WMS system, LocusView lets you easily monitor a wide range of metrics such as Units per Hour, Picks per Hour, LocusBot productivity, worker productivity, and more. You’ll get near real-time insight into what’s happening in your warehouse.
LocusView lets you see daily, weekly, monthly, and annual views of your performance. Reports can be downloaded and shared with management, helping maximize the overall efficiency.
The versatile mobile app that connects you to your operations
LocusManager™ is the powerful and intuitive mobile app that gives you control of your operation’s automated fulfillment productivity, from the warehouse floor or across the country.
Easily manage your operations and workflow, instantly assigning LocusBots to maximize your volume and staffing needs. You get real-time, up-to-date performance insight and activity reporting from wherever you need to work, and at any time of the day.
You’ll be able to see where your LocusBots are operating, monitor throughput performance, charging status, and more, helping you to quickly anticipate and respond to changes in order volume and demand. LocusManager gives you the flexibility and control you need to get the most out of your fulfillment programs.
LocusManager is designed to work with with all popular mobile platforms.
