GREENE, N.Y., April 29, 2019 — To address ever-evolving warehouse needs and challenges, The Raymond Corporation has expanded its award-winning telematics solution, iWAREHOUSE®, to encompass an Internet of Things (IoT) industry platform to manage all warehouse aspects. Attendees of the Warehouse Education and Research Council (WERC) Annual Conference 2019, April 28 to May 1, can see the iWAREHOUSE platform and Raymond’s additional intralogistics solutions on display and meet with industry experts.
“iWAREHOUSE is no longer just our telematics solution — it is an entire IoT-Industry 4.0 platform complete with integrated offerings in automated vehicles, labor management, equipment tracking, virtual reality education and energy solutions,” said Michael Field, CEO, The Raymond Corporation. “This suite of intralogistics solutions was created to help optimize the throughput of the warehouse, enable the workforce to be more productive and push innovation across all aspects of the warehouse to ensure that we are offering comprehensive end-to-end solutions.”
