Press Release


Optricity's software solutions for warehousing professionals highlighted for addressing unique obstacles in Supply & Demand Chain Executive's SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain Projects

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – June 17, 2020 – Optricity's work to strengthen communities through the power of advanced technology has been recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive for a 10th consecutive year. Having been implemented within hundreds of distribution centers around the world, Optricity is best known for its OptiSlot DC™ (OptiSlot) Software which supports slotting and profiling objectives using patented processes and optimization algorithm underpinnings to address complex problems while providing the flexibility to address real world challenges.

While many may be aware of benefits that slotting optimization can offer warehousing operations (e.g. improved space utilization, improved picking efficiency, replenishment reductions, travel reductions, etc.) one of the elements that sets Optricity's solutions apart is the team of software and industrial engineers, along with industry thought leaders, who collaborate to offer creative uses and techniques that can address unforeseen disruption to daily operations, as exemplified in recent months to combat effects of the global pandemic.

Recently, Optricity has been connecting with clients individually to offer guidance and strategies to help warehousing operations adjust to variations and solidify effectiveness.

“More than ever we’re finding new ways to solve complex problems with advanced software capabilities. During unprecedented demand fluctuations this year, our clients have leveraged the analytics and visibility of OptiSlot for timely decision making," said John Riccio, Senior Director of Engineering at Optricity. "Whether it be supply chains delivering essential products quickly and safely during peak demand; or sustainable slotting for improved efficiency during a lull, we have seen all clients benefit from our technology and domain expertise.”

A selection of the techniques deployed to support clients through the health concerns and precautions that needed to be implemented for workplace safety, as well as how to address unprecedented shortages and demand fluctuations presented by Covid-19, were recently covered during  Solutions @ WERC webinar, Unprecedented Times Call for Extraordinary Responses.
