4SIGHT Supply Chain Group and Parts Town to Present AutoStore Integration Success at HighJump Elevate 2018

The 4SIGHT-Parts Town case study will showcase how integrating HighJump Warehouse Advantage with the AutoStore goods-to-person system paved the way for quadrupled picking speed
Mar 6, 2018

4SIGHT Supply Chain Group, a leading supply chain consulting, engineering, and IT services provider, announced today that its work with Parts Town has led to a successful integration between HighJump® Warehouse Advantage and the AutoStore® goods-to-person technology. Parts Town, a distributor of genuine OEM restaurant equipment parts, will share its unique story alongside 4SIGHT during HighJump’s annual user conference, Elevate, March 11-14 in Dallas. 4SIGHT is a HighJump Elevate Gold Sponsor and a strategic implementation partner.

4SIGHT’s Scott Halvorson and Parts Town’s Kenny William will present the session, “Quadruple the Speed, Half the Space: How Parts Town and 4SIGHT Made It Happen with AutoStore,” Tuesday, March 13, from 10:20-11:10 a.m. CST. Their discussion will give attendees a view into the Parts Town project, which included moving to a new warehouse and building the space-saving AutoStore infrastructure with Bastian Solutions. Parts Town partnered with 4SIGHT to develop the integration between the HighJump warehouse management system (WMS) and Bastian Solutions’ Exacta warehouse control system, which interfaces with AutoStore.

With their integrated solution, Parts Town has achieved impressive results, most notably the ability to pick products at four times the previous rate, using only 2 percent of the warehouse floor space. Parts Town’s AutoStore configuration holds approximately 27,000 SKUs in 15,100 bins. It uses 21 robots and six ports—four for picking and two for put-away.

“We brought together best-in-class technical partners to bring our AutoStore vision to life, and the results speak for themselves,” said William, Director of Process Improvement for Parts Town. “I believe our proven success with 4SIGHT is the start of a long-term partnership. We continue to leverage their considerable expertise as we fine-tune our distribution operation.”

“4SIGHT and Parts Town charted a new technology course by collaborating on something that hadn’t been done before: designing the integration between the HighJump WMS and the Exacta interface for AutoStore,” said Halvorson, Senior Director of 4SIGHT's HighJump Practice. “Our success at Parts Town represents our ongoing focus on helping clients use advanced technology to transform their supply chains to meet increasing customer demands.”

4SIGHT and HighJump have worked closely to enable HighJump customers to transform their supply chains through the combination of adaptable software and best practice-based consulting services.

“Empowering our partners and customers with highly adaptable warehouse technology, creative solutions, and expert services to thrive in today’s market is core to HighJump’s values,” said Bill Ryan, senior vice president of operations at HighJump. “4SIGHT and Parts Town presenting their success at HighJump Elevate exemplifies our dedication to listening to and understanding the unique needs of our customers, enabling them to excel today and in the future.”
