GREYORANGE WAS FOUNDED ON THIS FUNDAMENTAL TRUTH:
YOU CAN’T MEET MODERN FULFILLMENT DEMANDS WITH TECHNOLOGY BUILT FOR A PREVIOUS ERA, BEFORE AMAZON CHANGED EVERYONE’S EXPECTATIONS FOR IMMEDIACY.
3 TECHNOLOGIES ARE FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING THE NATURE OF HOW THINGS WORK: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, MACHINE LEARNING AND ROBOTICS.
GREYORANGE COMBINES ALL 3 TO SHAPE THE FUTURE OF FULFILLMENT IN REAL TIME.
What Samay and Akash understood that others didn’t is that tacking robots onto software built for earlier times improves fulfillment performance some…but not nearly enough. After all, those robots are simply hardware appendages limited by the capabilities of the software systems to which they interface.
Instead, GreyOrange delivers a fundamentally new Fulfillment Operating System: One driven by an AI-enabled software brain we call GreyMatter that integrates robots rather than merely interfacing to them. Robots leverage GreyMatter software built into their core to communicate with other robots and with the central system, creating continuous feedback between the algorithms in the software brain and the real-time operations on the floor. In this way, prescribed operations are continuously informed by alternate real-time options to ensure GreyMatter’s always-solving intelligence calculates each “best decision” moment to moment.
Beyond Yesterday’s Constructs
GreyMatter delivers what other systems can’t because it contemplates people and robots working together and is built on a language designed for capabilities fulfillment demands:
- PERSISTENCE to keep connections up and data flowing when communication points are in motion
- MOBILE-SPATIAL AWARENESS so robots, people and inventory can move around efficiently without getting in each other’s way
- DECISIONING that launches multiple scenarios simultaneously to consider lots of options in real-time to arrive at the best choice in each moment
- FUTURE FLUID LOGIC that leverages Artificial Intelligence and real-time data together to break free of hard coded Standard Operating Procedures. This fluidity underlies charting the best course when the planning premise is “it depends” and enables adjusting what was planned to accommodate what is happening.
Integrating robots and AI-enabled software built on a language designed for fluidity and real-time decisioning directly addresses the most pressing fulfillment needs. Tight labor markets combined with escalating SKU volumes and accelerated shipping times demand moving past traditional technology to leverage a solution designed to fulfill the future in real time.
