Case Study: Warehouse Automation ROI

Ian Smith

Hot off the press is our first case study, which analyzes the impact that Ware's inventory automation system makes on two world-class distribution centers. The savings and overall efficiency gains are drastic and highlight how global organizations who still rely on human-based inventory management today are stuck in the past.

An excerpt from the preface:

To put it simply, 'the supply chain' is big. A globalized, multi-trillion dollar industry that has begun to embrace automation, robotics, and AI in earnest, starting in 2019. And it's the perfect time—but I'm guessing you already knew that.

No matter how big the industry is today, the world still seems small. New viruses, like COVID-19, can spread across the entire planet in a matter of months. Supply chain resilience is a real thing, not just a phrase invented by your corporate innovation department—and it's being tested to the brink.

The high-tech solutions that we've been piloting and reading about are no longer science projects. They've matured and are providing real value to stakeholders everywhere. They're built for companies big and small. Large enterprises are adopting new technology at a steadily increasing rate, with certain ones even brandishing themes plastered on walls inside their facilities, "2020: Our Year of Automation & Innovation"—they're company-wide mandates, planting a proverbial stake in the ground to not be left behind, to not be disrupted, and continue to adopt new solutions which will help them operate more efficiently, and be more resilient. This is one of the reasons we started Ware.

Our mission is to help our customers, who make up the global supply chain, operate more efficiently—to help them integrate cutting-edge automation technology, backed by robotics and artificial intelligence, in the simplest way possible. And in case you think that's just hyperbole, we've actually modeled parts of our software for scheduling drone flights after seamless consumer products, like Roomba.

The robots and software we all work with in our jobs should run automatically in the background—conforming to the nuances of our unique operation, not the other way around. We call it 'zen-like automation', and while we like to consider our product as easy-to-use as a robot vacuum cleaner, we promise the results and ROI you gain will be even more impressive.
