Case Study: How Medical Supply Company Quickly Doubled Output with AMRs

Modern Materials Handling Magazines with Vector

NorthShore Care Supply, a leading supplier of critical medical supply equipment, needed to quickly increase productivity due to growing demand and recent COVID-related order spikes. They required a solution that could be rapidly deployed by their valued workforce without major distributions to their facility or workflow.

NorthShore turned to top-tier systems integrator The Numina Group and Waypoint Robotics to develop an easy to use system that could be scaled as NorthShore continues to grow. The resulting system – Numina’s Real-Time Distribution Software (RDS™) Voice Picking Suite directing workers and Waypoint’s Vector AMRs pulling custom carts- was quickly adopted by Northshore workers and has more than delivered on substantially improving output for NorthShore in a relatively short period of time.

This success story caught the attention of Bob Trebilcock, industry veteran and Editorial Director of  Modern Materials Handling (MMH), a leading supply chain publication.  In his cover story, Bob beautifully outlines the project details and timeline while showing how the value of boosting productivity goes beyond just increased sales. The system is helping NorthShore fulfill its promise of same day shipment of critical medical supplies to customers in need while NorthShore workers get more done with more energy left at the end of each day.

See first-hand how it all came together in Bob’s exclusive webinar & roundtable interview with Adam Greenberg President of NorthShore Care Supply, Jason Walker CEO Waypoint Robotics & Dan Hanrahan, CEO Numina Group . Free to register!
