Trevor Blumenau, founder and CEO of Voodoo Robotics, a warehouse automation solutions provider, discussed the innovative ways businesses are emerging where technology is not the focus ─ but it plays a central role in customer fulfillment. In the recently issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive, Blumenau shared the purchase of Whole Foods Market by Amazon was a brilliant move.
“It’s not simply Amazon moving into the food business, but rather Jeff Bezos understands it’s about quality. A customer who goes online to purchase a banana wants the finest bananas, so Bezos chooses the brand with the best reputation in food quality,” says Blumenau. “There are many types of innovative business models that are not necessarily technology-driven but will have an important impact on distribution channels for e-commerce and m-commerce,” explained Blumenau.
Supply & Demand Chain Executive is the only magazine and website covering the entire end-to-end global supply chain in every vertical, in a solutions-based format.

About Voodoo Robotics:
Voodoo Robotics, (https://voodoorobotics.com/starter-kit/) the leading innovator in picking warehouse automation, provides cost-effective technology for warehouse inventory management and order fulfillment solutions. With engineering and robotic expertise, the Texas-based pioneer brings the next wave of state-of-the-art automation to material handling industries.
Voodoo offers a unique lease-based Pick-to-Light system designed to modernize warehouse operations by leveraging the latest IIoT (Industrial Internet-of-Things) technology. The picking hardware integrates effortlessly with existing WMS (Warehouse Management Systems), or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems allowing distribution centers, warehouses, and 3PLs (third party logistics) to scale operations, only paying for the lights needed each month. This revolutionary approach to leasing Pick-to-Light devices on a month-to-month, pay-as-you-go basis avoids long-term commitments and costly up-front fees.
A companion product, SKU-Keeper Inventory Management, is designed for warehouses that do not have an existing WMS or ERP system. Emphasizing simplicity and easy-of-use, the cloud software is also leased on a low-cost, low-risk month-to-month basis.
The company also provides smart, ROI (return-on-investment) driven Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) with an innovative 3D user interface, compatible with Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari. The robotic systems are designed, simulated and run, all using a Warehouse Descriptive Language (WDL), a concept invented by the company.
All of Voodoo Robotics products are patented or patent-pending. Currently the company is attracting best-practice, lean manufacturing focused, systems integrators throughout North America. The company is a proud member of MHI. Follow Voodoo Robotics on Twitter at @VoodooRobotics.
