Returns on investment for the Baseline ROI Leadership Awards handily topped 1,000%, courtesy of the Internet.


Company SkinCeuticals

Annual Return 1,184.6%

Project: The maker of skin-care products wanted to revamp its shipping processes and improve "pick accuracy"—the process of picking products off warehouse shelves. SkinCeutical's solution: Install a product-tracking system that includes radio-frequency scanners to speed order picking. ClearOrbit's Gemini Simplified Interface Suite software works with SkinCeutical's Oracle database to provide a single repository for all shipping data. The Garland, Texas, company (soon to be acquired by L'Oreal) was able to double its shipping efficiency while cutting warehouse space needs in half.

Benefits: SkinCeuticals doubled its shipping efficiency, reduced required warehouse space by 50% and tripled its order processing capacity.
