KEOGH Consulting now offers OptiSlot™ implementation services
KEOGH uses advanced slotting software to reconfigure FedEx office distribution center
KEOGH Consulting, a supply chain logistics consulting firm, announces it has achieved certification from Optricity to implement OptiSlot™ warehouse slotting software.  KEOGH's professional practice focuses on the planning, design, and implementation of integrated material handling and information management systems for manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution companies.  Optricity, led by the inventors of the industry's first product slotting software, has developed OptiSlot as a best of breed, independent slotting solution. 

KEOGH recently completed a facility reconfiguration project for FedEx Office (formerly FedEx Kinko's).  Utilizing the OptiSlot slotting software tool, KEOGH identified the ideal rack configuration and determined the optimum placement of retail items in the appropriate fixture type, with items grouped by product family.  Additionally, items were slotted by 'golden zone' (most frequent pick in the most ergonomic pick slots) within each product family.  The expected replenishment and picking productivity increase for these improvements is 10-15%.
