GreyOrange, a global software and mobile robotics provider, recently announced the latest release of its Fulfillment Operating System, which integrates GreyMatter software with the company’s series of mobile robots.
GreyOrange integrates software and robots built together specifically to improve order fulfillment throughput, scale, accuracy and economics. This release embodies capabilities that optimize fulfillment for companies with omnichannel and e-commerce needs. It also increases store efficiency by packing replenishment orders according to individual store layouts and preferences.
GreyMatter intelligence is incorporated as a learning layer in the Ranger robots so that as they operate, they can adapt to what is happening within the distribution center and externally, as order patterns and fulfillment expectations fluctuate. The robots communicate with each other and with the GreyMatter central system so it can continuously recalculate order fulfillment priorities and inventory movement patterns based on real-time factors such as order fulfillment commitments, actual fulfillment speeds, available resources and time remaining in dispatch windows.
“Many companies are struggling to keep up with expectations for same-day and next-day delivery along with store replenishment runs that are required two to three times per week or even daily,” said Samay Kohli, Chief Executive Officer for GreyOrange. “They are trying to meet modern fulfillment demands using software and hardware built for a time before Amazon changed the game for everyone by accelerating collective expectations. The idea that software and robots built together using the same intelligence is required in a modern Fulfillment Operating System is unique to GreyOrange, and represents the only solution built specifically to address modern fulfillment challenges.”
Many of the enhancements in GreyMatter are centered on data pattern intelligence and the ability of mobile robots to operate at scale across a distribution center, including retrieving and placing inventory racks on multiple floors or mezzanines using elevator access. Together, GreyMatter and Ranger robots comprise a Fulfillment Operating System designed for fast-paced, high-volume and high-product-variety operations.
