OrderWise welcomed over 200 delegates to its annual client expo and unveiled its latest robotics technology.
The all-day event, held at the EPIC Centre at the Lincolnshire Showground, was an opportunity for clients and selected partners to find out about the latest developments in the OrderWise software, as well as attend a series of useful business talks.
David Hallam, CEO of OrderWise, said: “This is only our second business expo and I am delighted that the event was so well attended – visitors travelled from all over the country from Cornwall to Scotland, and some clients even flew in from Ireland! It was important to us that we provided our clients with a showcase of the latest OrderWise innovations, as well as useful tips to help clients grow their businesses.
“Our new warehouse robotics were out in full force and clients were able to see exactly how these operate in our warehouse demonstration zone. Seeing the technology brought to life really highlights the benefits, delivering stock directly to the pickers so businesses can achieve faster fulfilment at a much lower cost.”
The OrderWise warehouse robots are due to be launched later this year with A Perry, an OrderWise client since 2012.
Guy Perry, Director at A Perry, said: “The OrderWise software has been instrumental in streamlining all our business operations, from sales to stock management. The next logical step for us is to move to a warehouse robotics solution in order for us to remain competitive.
“Our warehouse is being prepped as we speak, and we are excited to benefit from the technology – not only will it give us a cost saving of approximately £154,000 per year but it will also maximise efficiency and allow us to keep up with customer demand.”
Delegates were able to hear from guest speakers such as The Wilson Organisation on the importance of insuring your business, Parcel Hub on the rise of the customer review culture and Shooting Star which offered advice on SEO and a digital marketing strategy.
Yesterday’s event follows a successful start to the year for the company after making the Digital Leaders 100 list and being shortlisted in the National Technology Awards for its robotics solution. The company’s robotics software also won in the Innovation in Manufacturing category at the Lincolnshire Technology and Innovation Awards last month.
