Some current Alpaca automation customers started at a lower starting point of 60 to 80 packs, with the intention to aggressively scale their DAA business. This is common where staff and space restrictions limit the ability to grow.

Other Alpaca customers implemented at a higher starting point, where their goal was to improve overall operational and workflow efficiency aiming to reduce the DAA workspace and drive DAA volumes to new heights.
