In most warehouse environments there is not a single order methodology or SKU profile that suits one picking solution to absolute perfection.   Added to that complexity, typically a large number of SKU’s (mostly craft beers that account for significantly less volume) will account for the vast majority of picking activities. The modern warehouse is faced with managing a wide range of SKUs and volume fluctuations, hence, the need for the Cirrus Automated Case Picking System.
Given the complex and dynamic environment of today’s warehouse and distribution centers, rarely does a “one size fits all approach work.”  Using the same picking tool for every SKU regardless of volume or order frequency can be extremely inefficient.  That is why the Cirrus Automated Case Picking System offers distributors the flexibility to automatically pick a certain range of SKU’s that will provide a stronger and faster Return on Investment.

Features of the Cirrus Automated Case Picking System:

  • Multi-level pick modules including Pick to Light or Voice systems as well as Conveyors & Sorters
  • Includes User Acceptance Testing (UAT)
  • Includes the most current commercially released software version of Cirrus Tech WCS (can integrate into any RAS)
  • Includes customized integration between any RAS or proprietary system

Benefits of the Cirrus Automated Case Picking System

  • Ability to handle thousands of SKUs efficiently
  • Reduces labor costs by using less employees, plus no need for 2nd shift
  • Flexible to accommodate SKU expansion
  • 2-3 year ROI

With the gravity-feed conveyor of the Cirrus Tech Crane System, it's just first in, first out...So it just eliminates all of the touching for about 70% of your product.

In terms of receiving, I don't have to carry a pallet 100 feet, 200 feet.  It's just 20 feet away to getting input into our Cirrus Tech Crane System and I can input between three and four trailers at a time.

With Cirrus Tech we will receive product and put it in a rack location - it's in the system with one touch.  The next time we touch it is for order building, and so we plan to take a minimum of four touches out of the process.  That's where the efficiency is.

By choosing “The Crane” ASRS System from Cirrus Tech, we will gain efficiencies through our entire warehouse; how we receive, rotate and shuffle back stock, cycle count and replenish pick locations. The real surprise will be the efficiencies gained on the load building side. Cirrus Tech’s “Crane” and voice solutions will help us in all areas of the warehouse.

The Cirrus Tech Crane System provided our company an opportunity to consolidate an entire warehouse (Norfolk, NE) into the existing warehouse here in Fremont, NE.  It will incorporate 5 years of growth while providing less than a 5 year ROI with the efficiencies of the system.

My picking with the Cirrus Tech Directed Picking solution is at least 3 times faster and more accurate than when our employees picked orders manually using a sheet of paper.

The Cirrus Tech Crane System not only saved us from doing a costly expansion, it also helped us organize our warehouse in a manner that put efficiencies in places that we would have never realized by building a new warehouse.

A major advantage of the Cirrus WMS is being able to know where all of the SKU’s are at any given time.  This is especially helpful during crunch times when that rarely requested item would otherwise have to be hunted down in the warehouse.  Now, the system instantaneously tells us where to find it.
