Lucas Systems has introduced Jennifer FoodSelect, a voice-directed solution designed especially for foodservice and grocery distribution centers. Jennifer FoodSelect supports GS1 data standards for product traceability and provides flexible voice- or scan-based data capture for lot numbers, catchweights, or date codes using any industry-standard voice capable mobile computer.
This new Jennifer solution provides voice-directed order selection including two-stage planned inventory retrieval (PIR) picking and single- and dual-pallet case picking. For foodservice DCs, Jennifer FoodSelect includes on-demand case label printing, which Lucas Systems says eliminates selector idle time, reduces paper handling, and adds points to individual productivity rates.
Jennifer FoodSelect also provides voice-directed truck loading and generates accurate load maps to improve service and efficiency for truck drivers and customers.
Lucas Systems promises that Jennifer FoodSelect can bring customers double-digit improvements in selector productivity and accuracy. The new system offers quality control/audit tools and includes advanced management tools with the Engage Management Services Console. The integrated quality control/audit module allows managers to better prioritize audits and focus scarce quality control resources on the orders that need to be checked. Engage MSC includes route planning and management, productivity and process tracking, and system configuration tools in a web environment.
