Wagner Logistics installs software to speed up picking process
Wagner Logistics has implemented inVia Robotics Software new PickMate Tool to guide employees through its warehouses
Wagner Logistics has implemented inVia's AI-driven automation software in its Edgerton, Kansas warehouse. Central to this is inVia's new inVia PickMate tool which directs workers 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.
The ppicking software is supported by inVia Logic, which 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. They claim it doubled productivity over manual processes oon average.
"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."
"We wanted to upgrade our processes to keep a competitive edge. Our existing warehouse software fell short of the accuracy and productivity goals we want to achieve," said Kyle VanGoethem, director of solutions at Wagner. "We wanted smart technology that could meet our goals, grow with our business and integrate seamlessly into the warehouse. inVia checked every box."
