OVERVIEW

Reducing order fulfillment and inventory replenishment time in warehouses is imperative for businesses today to gain a competitive advantage. The GreyOrange Butler is an advanced robotic goods-to-person technology for automated inventory storage (putaway) and replenishment, picking and combining orders in fulfillment and distribution centres. The system seamlessly adapts to changing inventory profiles, demand patterns and peaks. Modular system architecture ensures bi-directional scalability to increase storage volume or fulfillment throughput independently, by adding more storage racks or robots, as needed.
