Whether you are a big fan of automation or not, it’s here and it is pretty cool. Below is a press release from inVia Robotics where they talk about a new partnership with Wagner Logistics.
inVia Robotics, the provider of the next generation of warehouse automation solutions for e-commerce, today announced Wagner Logistics has implemented inVia’s AI-driven automation software in its Edgerton, Kansas warehouse. inVia’s software includes the newly introduced inVia PickMate tool which increases warehouse workers’ productivity and accuracy by directing them to the most efficient route through the warehouse to take products from inventory to pack out. In the coming months, Wagner plans to deploy inVia Picker robots to work in tandem with its warehouse workers to further automate its order fulfillment process.
A key component of inVia’s automation software is inVia Logic. It employs AI to map a customer’s warehouse and calculate the most efficient paths for moving goods through the fulfillment process, from replenishment to picking to put back. inVia PickMate is a simple user interface that directs warehouse workers to follow these paths and pick accurate products to order bins, generally doubling productivity over manual processes.
“inVia’s system will double Wagner’s warehouse workers’ productivity with the introduction of PickMate and then quadruple productivity with the addition of Picker robots,” said Lior Elazary, chief executive officer and co-founder of inVia Robotics. “Scalability is critical in warehouse automation and we are excited to be able to offer incremental efficiency with the implementation of our software followed by our robots.”
When Wagner adds inVia Picker robots to its warehouse in the coming months, inVia’s software will continually adapt to provide optimized pick paths for both workers and robots, without the need for additional integration with Wagner’s Warehouse Management System.
