Kiva Systems makes Fast Company list of innovative companies
Kiva Systems, a developer of mobile-robotic solutions that automate eCommerce order fulfillment and warehouse operations, was ranked No. 23 in Fast Company Magazine’s recent list of the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies.
Kiva was honored for ‘turning squat robots into e-commerce giants’.
Kiva’s innovative approach to warehouse automation uses fleets of robotic drive units that bring inventory on mobile shelves directly to workers, allowing easy and efficient access to all inventory items at all times. Elimination of operator walking and waiting enables worker productivity that is two- to four-times higher than with other automated systems. What’s more, because all the system components are mobile and modular, a Kiva solution can transform an empty warehouse into a fully automated distribution center in a matter of weeks.
