What is a Systems Integrator?

A systems integrator will collaboratively work with you to design and implement solutions to optimize the efficiency and productivity of your operation and ensure a cost-effective solution to your material handling needs. From design and implementation to installation and service, systems integrators will work with you consultatively through every phase of your project to assure a turn-key, on-time delivered system.

What is an Automated Storage and Retrieval System (AS/RS)

Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (also referred to as ASRS systems) is a combination of equipment and controls that handle, store and retrieve materials as needed with precision, accuracy and speed. Systems vary from smaller automated systems to larger computer controlled storage/retrieval systems totally integrated into a manufacturing and/or distribution process.

They typically replace large areas of shelving to save floor space, improve safety and increase productivity. They also allow users to easily and quickly retrieve items when needed. Several companies manufacture a wide variety of self-contained, goods-to-person, automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS). The technologies handle different volumes, types and velocities of non-palletized inventory at variable speeds to accommodate varying throughput demands. When considering the options, keep in mind both the storage density your facility needs as well as your throughput goals. 

Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems also have a laundry list of alternative names such as dynamic storage systems, high density storage and retrieval systems and goods-to-person picking technology.
