Click & Go is the new marketing name for Bosch’s latest iteration and family of L-Boxx integrated storage solutions. Christian Heine spoke about Bosch’s process of observing the workplace and noting areas of feedback from real world users who could use more productivity. As an example, they observed and interviewed what they referred to as “mobile pros” and found that only around 31% of their day is productive (billable). The rest of the day is time spent buying supplies, driving, searching for tools, etc.
At this year’s 2010 Global Leadership Tour, Don Briner, who works in Bosch’s Tool Organization and Storage department, gave us a nice preview of their upcoming adaptation of Sortimo’s L-Boxx tool storage system. The new products seem to compete directly with Festool’s Systainers (though Bosch was careful not to directly address this in their presentation). The L-Boxx obviously targets mobile work, but its simplification of the transport and storage of power tools, accessories and consumables makes it appealing to just about everyone.
