inVia Robotics Wins 2022 Goods-to-Person Robotics Award for Technology Innovation from Frost & Sullivan
Leading eCommerce Logistics Automation Company Recognized for Providing Innovative Solutions to Supply Chain Challenges
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA., June 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — inVia Robotics –– a leader in e-commerce fulfillment automation systems –– received this year’s Best Practices Technology Innovation Leadership Award in the North American Human Goods Robotics Market by Frost & Sullivan , a leading third-party research and consulting firm.
inVia’s true robotics-as-a-service (RaaS) model beat out category competitors because it offers retailers and 3PLs a flexible, cost-effective solution that dramatically increases the productivity of existing facilities. The RaaS system allows customers to pay for the productivity of inVia robots and software over competitors who rent or sell robots. The subscription service covers all system updates and includes 24/7 monitoring and support through inVia’s Robotics Operation Center (ROC). A team of robotics experts is dedicated to each client to oversee runtime operations and troubleshoot issues, often solving them before they are even visible. This model democratizes automation, making it available as an operating expense for businesses of all sizes, compared to traditional equipment that was expensive and capital-intensive.
“We are honored to receive this recognition and award for our technology that solves pressing issues that warehouse workers and businesses face every day,” said Lior Elazary, CEO and co-founder of inVia. “We recognize that the demand for e-commerce continues to grow and that warehouse workers still face immense pressure to fulfill orders quickly. Our mission is deeply rooted in creating an environment where people can do fulfilling work and to make that happen, we are committed to improving the technology offerings our customers need.”
“Frost & Sullivan applauds inVia for maximizing worker productivity and providing e-commerce organizations with an accessible entry point to introduce autonomous mobile robots and the PickerWall into their businesses,” said Sankara Narayanan, Chief Industry Officer at Frost & Sullivan. “The company’s RaaS model, ROC and rapid deployment further enhance its customer value proposition.”
The inVia PickerWall was one of the key differentiators to receive the award, as it demonstrates inVia’s unique workflow that removes interdependencies between robots and people and subsequently unleashes productivity rates, at a time when warehouse labor is hard to hire. The inVia PickerWall helps businesses handle higher order volumes without having to increase manpower, enabling e-commerce warehouses to be 10 times more productive. Most importantly, inVia PickerWall harnesses the strengths of people and robots. Robots work non-stop performing repetitive tasks like moving and picking. People are allowed to perform higher order tasks like sorting and work on a variety of tasks in bursts. Workers benefit from more stimulating working conditions and companies consistently meet Service Level Agreements (SLAs) without a drop in productivity.
inVia Picker robots have also been recognized by Frost & Sullivan as solving one of the toughest problems in the e-commerce space; quick and easy access to a wide variety of Stock Keeping Units (SKUs). E-commerce warehouses are often 250,000 square feet, comparable to three football fields – and can have 100,000 SKUs spread across the warehouse. The robots are completely autonomous and eliminate the need for people to walk through the facility to pick up inventory and deliver it to the packing station. In addition, inVia Pickers are mobile, unlike traditional shuttle systems, and can be moved to work in different areas or other locations. This eliminates the need for facility re-engineering, allowing inVia to adapt to different environments.
The Frost & Sullivan Best Practice Awards recognize companies around the world for outstanding achievement and superior performance in leadership, technology innovation, customer service and strategic product development. inVia was recognized for its commitment to innovation, creativity and diversity of applications that meet the ever-changing needs of customers.
