CIRRUS TECH ANNOUNCES THE SIGNING OF EAGLE ROCK DISTRIBUTING COMPANY IN STONE MOUNTAIN, GA AS A NEW CUSTOMER
Cirrus Tech, Inc. announces the signing of Eagle Rock Distributing Company in Stone Mountain, GA as a new customer. Eagle Rock Distributing has operations in Stone Mountain and Dalton, GA and is a distributor of Anheuser-Busch products, Craft Beers, Wines, Spirits and other innovative beverage brands. Cirrus Tech, Inc. will be providing Eagle Rock Distributing Company with a Warehouse Management Solution to fill in the last piece of what will be a “best-in-class” warehouse from top to bottom! Cirrus’ WMS will bridge the gap between Eagle Rock’s automated case picking system and their RAS providing them full visibility into their warehouse. Providing the unique ability to bridge that gap is the reason Eagle Rock Distributing chose Cirrus Tech, Inc. Cirrus’ ability to customize solutions to fit the varying needs of it’s customers is one of the many things that sets Cirrus apart from other WMS and Warehouse solutions providers.
The Cirrus Crane System will increase our available pallet storage significantly. When we take into account the organization and many efficiencies the system will bring, this will be a real game changer for us in our warehouse.
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.
