Extraordinary Associate of the Month December 2015: Stacy Schnathorst
By West Music Company

Stacy Schnathorst was designated as Project Manager for the coordination and project oversight of the Navision - MODULA - Vertical Lifts (VLMs) for the Fulfillment Center. Stacy developed a detailed project plan and provided oversight of inventory data and development of test case scenarios for IT integration and resource planning for the VLM project. Stacy collaborated with the Sikich IT team, their engineers and West Music’s IT personnel to ensure integration requirements were well understood by all parties. He coordinated and led all slotting activities along with re-classing of over 3,500 SKUs during one of West Music’s busiest months with ZERO disruption to the customer. After installation, Stacy coordinated testing and training materials along with issue resolution management to ensure a successful implementation.

Stacy did an outstanding job of project oversight through all stages of installation. The VLMs are working beautifully. According to Kevin Futrell of Sikich, our loading success rate was 99%. That means that of every 100 items we attempted to load, 99 fit in the assigned VLM compartment size. This is the highest success rate Sikich has experienced in six years of installing VLMs.

Outstanding job, Stacy!

- As told by Mike Riley, Fulfillment Director of Operations/Vice President
