High Quality Lifestyle Eyewear Ski goggles and Helmets

One year ago, Smith Optics a division of the Italian eyewear giant Safilo who specialize in High-Fashion Lifestyle markets needed to improve their U.S. distribution, inventory and warehouse operation. With the help of Royal 4 Systems and HOJ Engineering, Smith Optics was able to accomplish all of these objectives in under 4 months. Since going live in July of 2011, Smith Optics has increased efficiencies in all departments and improved their overall distribution operations.

Distribution Industry Challenges Smith Optics was moving into a larger facility to handle the increase in business and new product lines. Their unique mix of distribution models included large orders to big box retail, smaller orders to boutique stores and very small internet orders. The solution would require a flexible and configurable solution - WISE by R4. Royal 4 helped Smith Optics to identify process flow improvements and existing constraints.

Proposed Cost Effective Solution With Royal 4’s configurable "Rules Based" suite of supply chain software they were able to deploy the HOJ Engineered High Speed Velocity Pick. Smith Optics now manages their distribution operations with the optimal combination automated processes to enable the highest level of productivity and customer service.

"With WISE we broke a single day shipping record the first week in operation followed by breaking a single month record with outbound orders the second month in operation" says Scott Patten, Plant Manager of Smith optics in Salt Lake City. Going Live in our peak season was a challenge only made possible because of the dedicated R4 staff and the great people here at Smith Optics.
