Why Modula Vertical Lift Modules Are the Smart Storage Solution for Automotive Dealership Parts Departments?
Modula’s high-density automated vertical storage systems are proving to do more than save valuable floor space in automotive dealership parts departments. These innovative storage systems allow for less use of floor space. This leaves more room for extra service bays and other revenue-generating workstations.
Automotive dealerships that have implemented automated vertical storage systems (vertical lift modules or vertical carousels) within their parts departments have dramatically increased their parts storage capacity, saving over 85% of valuable floor space compared to traditional static storage methods. These dealerships have also established far better control of their inventory. Greatly improve picking accuracy and significantly reduce the time required to get parts to sales and service technicians. The result is more service jobs possible per day as well as more satisfied customers with the implementation of just a single Modula vertical lift.
Increased operator productivity is another great benefit of automated vertical storage systems. Vertical lift modules (VLM) automatically deliver parts to the picker at an ergonomic height, rather than having the picker go and locate the parts within long aisles of shelving and cabinets. Walking time for parts retrieval is reduced up to 70% when compared to static shelving.
These innovative automated storage systems create a perfect fit for automotive dealerships & parts departments to achieve:
- Recovery of Floor Space – Reduce existing parts storage areas by approximately 85%. Store more parts, add more service bays, have a larger showroom, offices, or an area for accessories sales displays.
- Increased Operator Productivity – Faster processing of sales and service orders.
- Improved Picking & Inventory Accuracy – Achieve inventory accuracy rates up to 99.9% and having improved parts security.
