Seegrid, a provider of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) for material handling, has launched Fleet Geek, a cloud-based analytics solution that provides “a holistic, data-driven view of material flow”.
The company says it provides Seegrid’s customer base – prominent global brands in manufacturing, warehousing, and logistics – with “comprehensive, actionable insights into Seegrid Palion AMR performance across their entire network of facilities”.
Fleet Geek tracks and illustrates material flow trends, empowering users with critical insights to optimize workflows, increase utilization, quantify the value of automation, and scale automation initiatives across the enterprise.
The release follows the company’s recent unveiling of two new autonomous mobile robots: the company’s first autonomous lift truck, Palion Lift, and the newly enhanced Palion Pallet Truck.
Fleet Geek joins Supervisor, the company’s fleet management software, as part of Seegrid’s Fleet Central enterprise software platform.
Jim Rock, Seegrid’s CEO, says: “Seegrid is not only a robotics company, but also a data analytics company.
“Data-driven businesses are best positioned to keep up with fluctuating demands. Fleet Geek provides our customers with intuitive data visualizations and on-demand reporting to make well informed decisions about their unique workflows to scale their success.
“We’re committed to continue providing solutions that help our customers maximize the value of automated material flow.”
Seegrid Palion AMRs work in unison among human coworkers, autonomously and safely moving billions of pounds of material each month in highly complex environments.
Fleet Geek increases visibility by showing live project status views of each Seegrid Palion AMR across the company’s entire network of facilities.
Dashboard views help companies ensure their entire Palion AMR fleet is running effectively across all facilities, shifts, and business applications – meeting key performance indicators while delivering information to quantify the success of the automation investment.
Jeff Christensen, Seegrid’s VP of product, says: “Industry leaders across the supply chain are not asking ‘if’ or ‘when’ to automate material flow – but rather, how to ensure their automation investments are delivering maximum impact, and how to replicate that success across the enterprise.”
