GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN – May 2, 2016 – Dematic, a leading global supplier of integrated automated technology, software and services to optimize the supply chain, today announces the latest release of its real-time software automation platform, Dematic iQ 2.1 for grocery retailers. This new version contains cost saving features and advanced algorithms that improve order picking as well as pallet and roll container building.

Dematic iQ has always helped solve the labor, transportation and productivity challenges that the grocery industry faces every day. Today, Dematic is making it faster, simpler and less expensive for grocery retailers to get product onto store shelves.

“With Dematic iQ, we are providing the grocery distribution market a complete platform that supports and integrates operations from voice and manual processes to fully-automated, aisle-ready store replenishment,” stated Miguel Pinilla, Dematic Vice President of Global Logistics Solutions. “Our software provides sophisticated sequencing and packaging optimization, not only reducing warehouse and logistics costs, but also improving inventory turns."

Enhanced load cubing algorithms reduce transportation costs by maximizing the number of cases on pallets and roll containers. The advanced multi-criteria optimization also works to eliminate product damage and load instability.

Dematic iQ 2.1 improves efficiency of split-case picking for small items like health and beauty products. The software incorporates advanced goods-to-person picking strategies using patent-pending inter-aisle transfer technology that reduces fulfillment costs. The results are lean goods-to-person solutions that require less capital-intensive equipment, improve order cycle times and reduce overall order fulfillment cost.
