24 Mar Top 25 Pick Rates: February 2020
We certainly don’t need to tell anyone that our industry has changed in the last week. Unless you’ve been locked up as a contestant on the reality show Big Brother, our country and industry has some challenges to overcome. Because it may be a while before things return to normal, we will temporarily suspend publishing the Top 25 pick rates.
We remain positive this will be a short term problem. The steps being taken to stop the spread of the virus are unprecedented. If we all do our part and keep an optimistic view, we will get through this and be better as a result.
We are here to help. If you need any help in training new employees due to layoffs, need to upgrade your version of LightSpeed or want to take advantage of the down time and reorganize your warehouse we can help. Our support team is temporarily grounded but we are fully staffed. They are standing by to assist any way they can.
We are taking advantage of this down time by putting new procedures in place that will improve your experience with LightSpeed. Our Development department is working hard to complete some exciting new feature requests that will make our customers even more efficient.
We are choosing to stay positive, focus on the things that we can control, help our customers and be ready for the biggest economic rebound in the history of our country.

*The pick rates published here are determined by dividing the total number of pieces picked for the month by the total amount of time a customer was logged into LightSpeed. We measure two types of time – active and idle time. The two numbers added together make up Clock Time (or Total Time).
There are several things that we cannot see in measuring these pick rates. The biggest one is the number of employees being used during active picking. A company with 10 people on their line is going to pick faster than a company with 3 people on their line.
Total Clock PPH is the most accurate way to measure total warehouse efficiency if you’re going to use one metric. It does combines active and idle time but there are legitimate reasons for idle time – stocking shelves, emptying trash, breaking down cardboard, cleaning the bathroom, putting up an incoming vendor order and the list goes on.
