Why Modula Vertical Lift Modules are the Smart Storage Solution for Automotive Dealership’s Parts Departments?
Modula’s high-density automated vertical storage systems are proving to do more than save valuable floor space in automotive dealership’s parts departments.
Automotive dealerships that have implemented automated vertical storage systems (vertical lift modules or vertical carousels) within their parts departments have dramatically increased their parts storage capacity, saving approximately 85% of valuable floor space compared to traditional static storage methods. Moreover they have also established far better control of their inventory, greatly improved picking accuracy and significantly reduced the time required to get parts to sales persons and service technicians. The result is more service jobs possible per day as well as more satisfied parts customers.
Another benefit of the implementation of automated vertical storage systems is the greatly increased operator productivity. Vertical lift modules automatically deliver parts to the picker at an ergonomic height, rather than having the picker go and locate the parts within long aisles of shelving and cabinets. Walking time for parts retrieval is reduced up to 70%, when compared to static shelving.
An automotive dealership’s parts department is definitely a perfect candidate for these innovative automated storage systems, to achieve:
- Recovery of Floor Space – Reduce existing parts storage areas by approximately 85%, while being able to store more parts, add more service bays, have a larger showroom, offices, or an area for accessories sales displays.
- Increased Operator Productivity– Faster processing of sales and service orders.
- Improved Picking & Inventory Accuracy – Achieve inventory accuracy rates up to 99.9% and having improved parts security.
