New York-based SaaS warehouse management software and robotics company Jasci Software has announced its patent pending Alida autonomous labour intelligent dynamic assignment system.

Alida manages staff and robots interactively to decrease dependency on labour while increasing speed, efficiency and accuracy. It automates decisions by orchestrating tasks for staff and robots throughout the warehouse from inbound to outbound in real time.

“This is a major challenge for all logistics facilities across the globe to achieve better results,” said Daniel Napoli, CTO at Jasci Software. “Alida eliminates the science projects that many companies will experience trying to deploy next generation robotic technology.”

Charlie Armstrong, Jasci partner and former VP of supply chain for the Home Depot, added: “With over four million robots estimated to be deployed in over 50% of all warehouses by 2025, Alida bridges the gap to making them work seamlessly.”

Jasci’s SaaS platform is powered by SmartTask, a patented intelligent workflow technology that makes it easier to adapt changes, optimise and implement. SmartTask smartly optimises process and prioritises tasks to orchestrate people, inventory, orders, robotics and material handling in real time.

Alida leverages the workflow technology, making it easier to deploy robotics without custom coding projects. With over 650 SmartTask workflows out of the box, users can leverage these workflows with staff and robots interchangeably.

“Making it easier to run logistics operations and providing our customers with the competitive edge is our number-one focus,” said Craig Wilensky, CEO of Jasci Software. “When customers invest in Jasci, it’s our responsibility to provide best in class technology to help them grow and compete. Our R&D in Alida and recent acquisition of NextShift Robotics are examples of that commitment.”

Jasci’s multi-tenant, multi-location and multi-lingual platform in 80 languages can be deployed globally.
