What Customers Are Saying
The following are samples from customer successes with Slot3D™:
|Trommer and Associates
"As the principal at Trommer and Associates, I selected Slot3D
Software as our tool of choice for warehouse planning and analysis.
The use of Slot3D has allowed us to extend the value we provide
for our clients and take our facility planning services to an even
higher level. The economic based algorithms of Slot3D,
combined with the embedded AutoCAD software, allow for graphic
and information modeling of floor plans and equipment. This
powerful combination provides the assurance that operating costs
have been optimized with the least amount of capital investment.
The Slot3D models we have created for various Distribution Centers,
using the client’s operating data and business rules, have
allowed us to create better results over traditional methods. All
Distribution Systems can benefit from Slotting Optimization but
Slot3D helps with both the reduction of operating costs and the
capital required for space and equipment."

|UPS (United Parcel Service)
"IDS’s Slot3D software is a tool
we use to assist our customers to improve their warehouse operations.
It is a powerful application that shows a rapid ROI for warehouse
design projects and continuous re-slotting needs. The built-in
AutoCAD and report generation capabilities allow for presentations
to be created, meeting the needs and expectations of customers
who prefer either visual or number based analysis."

"Slot3D provides many benefits through its ability to cost
optimize improvements in an existing facility or in the planning
process for new facilities. In our case, Slot3D removed the operational
biases from the decision making process. It allowed us to quickly
make the correct decisions to take cost out of our operations with
the full support and confidence of our warehouse teams that the
cost savings would materialize. We have used Slot3D to drive cost
savings across multiple facilities and in many cases we have significantly
exceeded our original savings targets. Our business confidence
in the achievable results has allowed us to remove all labor savings
prior to physically re-slotting a facility, as the labor dollars
are justified during development and easily captured. I would
recommend Slot3D for anyone who has the goal of quickly reducing
warehouse costs with the full buy-in and support of their operations

|Big Rock Sports
"I had a very specific purpose in mind for the use of Slot3D
when I started my search for a slotting optimization tool. I
was in the process of consolidating two existing warehouses into
one new facility. The design work for the new facility had been
completed with the aid of a consultant along with the specifications
for new equipment purchases. Since the opportunity to build and
equip a new facility doesn’t happen that often,
it was imperative that we get it done absolutely right at the
outset. This is why I wanted a way to verify that we had
the correct design and were equipped properly to support our
distribution requirements. Slot3D proved to be the tool
we needed. It helped us analyze the design and correct several
things that otherwise would have been costly mistakes that we
would be living with for a long time. It is my opinion that anyone
who is involved in the design of a new warehouse or even a re-design
of an existing facility would benefit from having their design
verified using Slot3D."

"At WOW Logistics we pride ourselves on providing superior
service at the least possible cost to our clients. Our services
are very dynamic by nature because the product mix changes frequently.
This creates the need to re-optimize our storage locations in
order to maintain the least cost for storage and order fulfillment.
We chose Slot3D as our optimization tool because it is economic
based and provides the ability to model our operations in a way
that we can quickly adjust to changes and maintain control of
Sherry Janssen, Vice President of Engineering
|National Storage & Conveyor Systems
"From the perspective of a Warehouse Design Professional,
Slot3D is a planning tool that can achieve optimal placement
of products within warehousing and distribution environments.
We have used Slot3D to model cost savings in a number of different
ways for Clients in diverse businesses. Slot3D allows scenarios
to be developed which provide a basis for product placement analysis.
When properly applied, Slot3D provides an overview of the physical
warehouse space, inventory characteristics, and the associated
rules for how inventory should optimally be stored and picked.
When prudently analyzed, the results provided by Slot3D can guide
the Warehouse Design Professional with the selection of storage
systems. The software identifies cost saving opportunities which
would otherwise be over-looked. Our Slot3D software will definitely
augment all our other optimization capabilities. We have proven
to ourselves that this value added tool can reduce our clients
operating costs and streamline their distribution practices.

|Sure Winner Foods
"Changes in product demand, seasonality, and a continuous stream of new products made the need for quick location assignments/reassignments top precedence. Additionally, with the rigid constraints of freezer walls, utilization of space is a high priority. Slot3D combined multiple challenges to achieve a customized recommendation of SKU storage locations."
