GREENE, N.Y., January 14, 2020 — The Raymond Corporation was named to Food Logistics’ 2019 FL100+ list, highlighting Top Software and Technology Providers. Raymond makes this year’s list for its expanded iWAREHOUSE® intelligent solutions platform system that helps the food and beverage industry address a number of challenges including the skills and labor gap and increasing consumer demands for obtaining products faster.
In response to the industry’s skills and labor gap, Raymond expanded its capabilities of the iWAREHOUSE fleet management and warehouse optimization system to encompass the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 platform, helping customers manage warehouse and staffing needs. The iWAREHOUSE solutions have integrated offerings in telematics, automated vehicles, labor management, location tracking, virtual reality education and energy solutions.
“Telematics data is crucial for any warehouse, plant or facility because it can be used to enhance productivity and identify pain points within the workforce or operation,” said John Rosenberger, director of iWAREHOUSE GATEWAY™ and Global Telematics at The Raymond Corporation. “With electronic checklists, load sensing, task selection and battery monitoring, the iWAREHOUSE platform has an extensive list of items that can assist operators in their daily tasks, eliminating unnecessary downtime.”
The iWAREHOUSE platform can be used with existing mixed fleets and vehicles, no matter the brand, to provide a comprehensive view of customers’ warehouse equipment. Additionally, iWAREHOUSE is scalable, helping warehouses meet their basic needs for telematics and current technological innovations, such as virtual reality (VR) and IoT, can help engage current and potential talent.
