Avoid chaos with AI and robotics

One factor in ensuring that campaigns like Black Friday run smoothly is the modernization of inventory management. The existing processes and tools are not designed for the current situation. They often do not have enough flexibility and reaction time to deal with the unplanned delivery situation and the surge in demand.

The solution is to automate fulfillment and inventory management using artificial intelligence software (AI) and robotics, such as those offered by Greyorange. Through the use of interconnected AI at every point in the supply chain, the customer can rely on the product availability shown in the shop and is immune to subsequent disappointments, including with regard to the specified delivery times. Goods in the warehouse can be moved between individual stations more quickly and without a break. In addition, all decisions and processes are controlled in real time, based on millions of data points.

If retailers optimize their inventory management through robotics and AI software, they can continue to react reliably. They can also keep delivery promises made with regard to speed – a competitive factor of great importance. Last but not least, such automation solutions take the strain off employees in the warehouse.
