John Hayes, Director of Sales at BALYO, a technological leader in the design and development of innovative robotic solutions for material handling trucks, was a recent guest on Quality Digest Live podcast. Dirk Dusharme, host of Quality Digest Live and Hayes discussed when warehouses or distribution centers fail to automate, the consequences are serious including reduction in capacity and increased costs.

Hayes shared, “I see now are kids coming out of school, don’t want to drive forklifts; they absolutely don’t. The ability to work behind a computer to write code, to program AGVs, or even the extension, where maybe they’re sitting in an office driving a forklift, where you know, there’s nobody on them anymore. They’re driving from their office. Things are definitely changing.”
For more than twenty years Hayes has been evaluating, designing, developing, and implementing innovative technology solutions, with a particular focus in the automated guided vehicle (AGV) and automated mobile robots (AMR) space.
Quality Digest magazine and Quality Digest Live presents all facets of quality, including metrology, Six Sigma, lean, inspection, testing, SPC, software, and international standards. Quality Digest offers more editorial coverage of these standards than any other quality magazine or website.
Pascal Rialland, CEO of BALYO and leader in the design and development of innovative robotic solutions for material handling trucks, shared that BALYO considerably strengthened commercial development prospects. The company is counting on an enhanced technological platform which reduces sales cycles and benefiting from the ramp-up of direct sales to complement existing indirect sales channels. The direct sales channel is now fully operational in the USA.
BALYO transforms standard forklift trucks into standalone intelligent robots thanks to its breakthrough proprietary Driven by Balyo™ technology. The geoguidance navigation system developed by BALYO allows vehicles equipped with the system to locate their position in real-time and navigate autonomously inside buildings/warehouses. Within the automated handling vehicle market, BALYO’s 2021 outlook includes the acceleration of profitable growth after the successful implementation of a more efficient and autonomous commercial strategy. BALYO will pursue efforts to accelerate sales in 2021, including the addition of John Hayes, a well-respected and experienced industry thought-leader, as Director of US Sales to grow North American business development. The anchoring of new operational drivers, commercial partnerships forged with integrators, and commercial autonomy through technological developments will uniquely position BALYO in 2021 and beyond.
