“We’re honored to receive this recognition and award for our technology that is solving the pressing issues warehouse employees and businesses face every day. We recognize that eCommerce demand is continuing to rise and warehouse workers are still facing immense pressure to fulfill orders quickly. Our mission is to create an environment where people can do fulfilling work and we are committed to improving the technological offerings that our customers require.” – Lior Elazary, CEO and Co-Founder of inVia Robotics.

The award recognized especially inVia PickerWall, which demonstrates inVia’s unique workflow that removes interdependencies between robots and people and boosts productivity rates, at a time when warehouse labor is difficult to find. The inVia PickerWall helps companies manage higher order volumes without adding workers, generating 10X productivity for eCommerce warehouses. inVia PickerWall leverages the strengths of both people and robots. Robots work nonstop doing repetitive tasks like picking while people can do sortation and work on a variety of tasks. Workers enjoy more stimulating working conditions and businesses enjoy consistently meeting service level agreements without a loss of productivity.

Frost & Sullivan cited inVia Picker robots for solving one of the most challenging problems in eCommerce: quick and easy access to a wide variety of SKUs. The autonomous robots reduce worker travel across the facility to retrieve inventory and deliver it to the packing station. Additionally, inVia Pickers are mobile and can be moved to different zones or locations.

The Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies globally for outstanding achievement and superior performance in leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development.
