Raymond provides two new systems
for optimizing warehouse efficiency
Feb 14, 2013 7:00 AM
The Raymond Corporation introduces iWAREHOUSE Essential and iWAREHOUSE Enterprise—two new systems that combine fleet efficiency, warehouse optimization, and professional services.
iWAREHOUSE Essential provides access control and compliance, and it monitors and collects lift truck and operator data in real time, allowing warehouse managers to increase visibility of assets and labor. iWAREHOUSE Enterprise turns collected asset and labor information into actionable data that help warehouse managers identify opportunities for fleet and warehouse optimization. The system integrates with select labor management systems (LMSs) to help increase productivity and reduce operating costs, and can be used by Raymond’s consultants to enhance optimization decisions.
Complete with a variety of data-tracking modules, iWAREHOUSE Essential provides increased warehouse and lift truck fleet visibility. Drawing real-time, accurate information from the operating systems of lift trucks, it enables warehouse managers to track important information and identify ways to improve operator and lift truck performance. Its basic configuration allows for control, monitoring, and tracking of lift truck and fleet usage. It also automates vehicle access and provides an electronic operator checklist that is recorded and stored for OSHA compliance.
Through iWAREHOUSE Essential, lift truck operator accountability is enhanced due to the system’s ability to detect and report vehicle and driver information—in real time—during operator use and where and when impacts occur. It also contributes to overall increased visibility by monitoring maintenance and diagnostics alerts, tracking maintenance parts and labor, and consolidating fiscal billing.
iWAREHOUSE Enterprise can manage and report truck, fleet, and operator data to enhance fleet optimization, as well as provide data and analysis for warehouse optimization. Unique to this system, integration with select LMSs can provide greater warehouse visibility, increase asset utilization, and provide information to audit labor standards to help increase employee productivity. It also offers tailored consulting services through trained Raymond professionals who analyze data and help identify opportunities to increase productivity and decrease operating costs.
