LocusWILMINGTON, Massachusetts – Locus Robotics has unveiled its new Locus Rapid Assessment & Design Service, or RAD.

The RAD program enables prospects and customers to quickly evaluate the productivity benefits and return on investment (ROI) of deploying Locus’s collaborative robotics solution, ensuring that businesses are ready to meet high demand in the post-pandemic economy.

“The move to online commerce is happening faster than ever before. Now is the right time for third-party fulfillment (3PL), retail, industrial, and healthcare companies to prepare for the volume surge by deploying new technology solutions to maximize their fulfillment efficiency and productivity,” said Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics.

“The Locus Robotics RAD Service is done while maintaining social distancing to quickly give customers and prospective partners insight into how our solution will improve warehouse productivity to meet growing fulfillment demand as we emerge from the current pandemic.”

The Locus RAD program helps the industry by simplifying and speeding up the planning and implementation process for evaluating and adding AMR automation.

Locus RAD offers insights into the ROI, benefits, and suitability of deploying the Locus collaborative robotics solution through three simple steps:

  1. Data Collection: Locus gathers historical customer data about the facility
  2. Proposal Development: Locus designs a complete Concept of Operations, including ROI, program timelines, and key performance metrics
  3. Project Plan Review: Locus develops a comprehensive plan for fast implementation

In one week, Locus can deliver a detailed report and recommendations. The vast majority of the Locus RAD plan can be executed without the need to visit the customer facility so that it will conform to strict access policies in effect during the pandemic quarantine.

The Locus RAD service is available now to a wide range of fulfillment and distribution organizations worldwide.
