Welcome to the age of immediacy
Your fulfillment operation is already feeling the impact
In addition to customer-driven choices in the thousands, multiple channels and destinations, unlimited buyers and hundreds of form factors, now you must execute on all of it in time windows never before imagined.
Buyers, whether a business replenishing retail inventory or a consumer receiving doorstep delivery—increasingly view next day/same day—even multi-hour delivery–beyond a preferred choice…to them it’s fast becoming an expected standard.
Delivering satisfaction to today’s savvy buyers requires deeper, smarter, faster technology.
The GreyMatter™ Fulfillment Operating System uses advanced fulfillment science to instantaneously evaluate order data and compose best decisions in real time to efficiently orchestrate people, processes and robots. The result is a fast, agile and precisely tuned operation equipped to perpetually meet the what-when-where expectations of the market you serve.
The GreyMatter™ FOS rapidly responds to real time exceptions and events, prescribes actions, and orchestrates integrated and frictionless performance across every node
of your operation.
The always-solving Fulfillment Operating System engineered for modern commerce
The GreyMatter fulfillment operating system continuously solves to drive optimal decisions, efficient orchestration and rapid execution across the entire fulfillment operation–so you’re ready in real time for whatever the market has in store.
Because GreyMatter automatically grows smarter, your fulfillment process continuously gets better
GreyMatter is the only fulfillment solution designed to deliver progressive performance with every execution cycle.
As advanced Ai seamlessly integrates software, smart robots and people—the system instantaneously models best decisions to drive optimal workflows and execution using machine learning and adaptive learning.
GreyMatter perpetually stores high performing outcomes, factors and resources calibration of ‘what works best’.
As every new scenario, with its level of character and complexity is instantaneously assessed in real time, high outcome formula histories are called up, tested, applied, rejected or fluidly calibrated for best fit and highest probable accuracy, efficiency and speed.
This dynamic knowledge base of data-driven information and best case workflows accelerates and optimizes every future decision and scenario to deliver perpetually improving fulfillment operations.
The Ranger™ series of intelligent fulfillment robots
Ranger robots are developed in integration with GreyMatter AI software to flexibly respond, intelligently adapt and mobilize faster, frictionless fulfillment.
Built to Last and Learn
The Ranger series of intelligent robots are built together with our GreyMatter AI-driven software to form the GreyOrange Fulfillment Operating System. A real-time feedback loop between GreyMatter and Ranger robots continuously shapes decisions and performance.
Unlike robots that operate as system attachments, Ranger robots incorporate GreyMatter intelligence as a learning layer that guides them to adapt to real-time events happening within the distribution center and externally as orders fluctuate and you adjust your fulfillment priorities.
Performance & Efficiency
Lower Total Cost Over Time
Always-solving intelligence optimizes performance in peak periods and every day
Real-time data flow between GreyMatter and Ranger robots feeds always-solving algorithms to calculate and recalibrate each next-best decision, whether you’re prioritizing to deliver peak demand fulfillment or managing every-day fulfillment payoffs and tradeoffs.
Together, GreyMatter and Ranger Robots Are the Brains and Muscle of the GreyOrange Fulfillment Operating System
Ranger robots communicate with each other and with GreyMatter to continuously recalculate and orchestrate fulfillment priorities and inventory movement patterns based on real-time factors. As order promise dates, inventory positions, store replenishment requests, available workers and robots, actual fulfillment pace and time remaining in dispatch windows fluctuate, the system adapts to ensure you meet your top priorities and Service Level Agreements.
In today’s age of immediacy, the buyer is at the wheel. Meeting their rising expectations for choice and speed is the real world challenge facing fulfillment. At GreyOrange we recognize speed-to-fulfill is at the heart of accelerating overall ‘click-to door’ time and the satisfaction it delivers—a challenge that can’t be met with fixed infrastructure and rigid automation built for a previous era.
Improves speed & accuracy
Ranger™ GTP is an advanced autonomous mobile robot that uses robotic goods-to-person technology for automated put-away, inventory storage, replenishment and order picking in fulfillment and distribution centers.
Developed in concert with GreyMatter™ AI software and purpose-engineered for speed and versatility, Ranger GTP continuously data-shares with GreyMatter while working in collaborative performance with other robots and the human workforce.
The Ranger GTP automation system adapts seamlessly 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.
From reducing travel time by 5x that of human workers, to reconfiguring mobile stock units (MSUs), and working in tandem with other GTPs and Ranger Pick, the result is fluid, dynamic optimization.
Automating and streamlining DC interzone mobility
Automating and Streamlining DC Interzone Transport
The Ranger IL (Intralogistics) robot is an intelligent, versatile Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) engineered to move a diverse range of inventory payloads – on pallets, racks, cages or trolleys – among zones in a warehouse. By automating material transportation, distribution centers can optimize productivity, focus workers on higher-value activities, and schedule deliveries more effectively to reduce material bottlenecks.
Simple, ready-to-run implementation and the ability to adapt workflows in real time to accommodate shifts in delivery volumes or orders enable Ranger IL to generate a rapid return-on-investment through increased productivity, reduced material damage and saved time, cost and labor.
GreyMatter intelligence assesses DC performance in real time and orchestrates how and when Ranger IL transports inventory among zones, dynamically adjusting to protect SLAs, avoid bottlenecks, heighten throughput and protect the safety of people and materials.
Ranger IL uses advanced Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) navigation along with GreyMatter mobile-spatial intelligence to operate in accident-free collaboration with other robots, automated infrastructure, people and inventory. The robot’s patented vertical motion Lift Deck™ enables it to handle additional forklift tasks and greatly reduce pallet and trolley damage through smooth vertical storing.
Scale and locate conveying and sorting robots as demand requires
Modern fulfillment can’t afford the restrictions of rigid sortation systems you need to size today based on predictions for the shape and pace of your business years in the future. Once locked-in, these systems can’t flexibly adapt and scale with demand patterns and business changes.
Ranger MOBILE SORT can augment or even replace rigid systems to deliver scalable and portable conveying and sorting as you need it, where you need it, especially when handling peaks. Capable of operating in footprints where rigid systems won’t fit, Ranger MOBILE SORT helps you optimize current facilities, plus can easily relocate to other facilities as you grow.
