Functionality Delivers ROI According to Warehouse Automation Expert at viastore Systems

viastore Systems’ customer service manager, Adam Smelker recently discussed the importance of functionality in implementing automation. Smelker addressed how material handling automation installation does not always have to be an enormous undertaking—in both size and budget—in order to deliver a solid return on investment (ROI). Rather, it is the functionality and flexibility of the installed equipment that can deliver the biggest impact when automating your warehouse.

Smelker noted, “The key lies in first determining what configuration of warehouse automation technology will address the unique challenges of your specific operation, whether your goals are labor savings, space savings, throughput and flexibility gains, or reduced maintenance and supervision. Understanding the needs of your warehouse, the capabilities of the equipment, and the adaptability of the system’s design can address a variety of different handling objectives.”
