Autonomous inventory drones are changing the way businesses manage logistics and supply-chain metrics by optimizing aerial inventory scans. California-based FlytBase has launched a new innovation in this growing field with the FlytWare Solution Partner program.
Deploying autonomous drones, the FlytWare solution replaces manual inventory cycle counts for large warehouse or distribution centers, saving time and money with intelligent, automation software working behind the scenes.
By using autonomous inventory drones, companies can also mitigate COVID-19 health risks for warehouse workers who would otherwise have to work close together with manual scans.
“The Solution Partner program provides partners the ability to demonstrate inventory automation leadership, and thus differentiate themselves from in a competitive industry,” a FlytBase spokesperson said. “With access to market and customer insights, the FlytWare solution roadmap, marketing collateral, product training, and return-on-investment calculators, Solution Partners can rapidly climb the ‘drone learning curve.’ They can access multiple revenue streams across the journey of aerial inventory adoption, from lead generation to post-deployment maintenance and support.”
FlytWare set out to solve supply-chain challenges of indoor autonomous navigation, automatic barcode scanning and reliable, affordable hardware. The drone-centered solution can be configured across a variety of storage layouts, operated via user-friendly dashboard and integrated with API-enabled warehouse-management systems. “The operational success of FlytWare is driven by continuously refining the solution in close partnership with warehouse inventory and IT teams.”
“The importance of B2B partnerships has only increased amidst the ongoing pandemic. Restrictions on travel, e-commerce and human involvement have highlighted the importance of remote collaboration and automation,” FlytBase CEO Nitin Gupta said concerning autonomous inventory drones.
“Since last year, we have worked closely with not only our enterprise customers but also members of the warehouse inventory ecosystem such as WMS vendors, supply chain consultants, inventory service providers, pallet suppliers and so on. These interactions clearly highlighted the need to help our customers navigate the journey of automation in their inventory search, count, and audit processes. We now wish to accelerate our FlytWare partnership activity, across countries, and across the customer life cycle.”
