If your business requires handling high volume of products ranging from lightweight items to larger products, Sortation Systems could help you eliminate the hard physical labor of sorting and moving. These systems offer a rapid return on investment due to decreased labor costs and increased accuracy when utilized to automate order fulfilment returns processing, loose receipts, or pin code sorting. As manufacturing, distribution, FMCG, transport and logistics organizations across the globe are striving to adopt new systems and technologies, sortation systems form an integral part in driving overall operations efficiency.
India is also witnessing rapid advancements in implementing technology and systems upgrades across the industry. In order to keep up with the customer demands, automotive, distribution, FMCG, and retail companies are implementing solutions such as sortation systems to help them reduce manual errors and improve operational efficiencies.

We offer the following Sortation Systems to our customers:
Our Solution Methodology consists of the following phases:
Business and Operations Evaluation : This is the first step in our automation projects which forms the baseline of the engagement. During this phase, we perform a detailed analysis of your operations and technology/automation requirements
Solution Design and Proposal : Based on the initial analysis, we develop customized solutions with different options and propose the design to our customers. During this phase, we revise the design and proposed solution until the final agreement
Systems Engineering : During this phase, the proposed solution is engineered to meet the customer requirements. This includes layout designing using Systematic Layout Planning Methodology (SLP), simulation models to test different machine and manpower configurations, flow analysis based on multiple storage options
Procurement : Sourcing of machines and technological infrastructure takes place during this phase
Installation : Our teams work together to install all the equipment and supporting systems and ensure that the agreed upon design is at par with the final assembly
Ongoing Support : We provide continuous support and if required, deploy a full-time team of experts on site for a certain period of time depending upon the customer requirements. In case of "Design, Build, and Operate" engagements, we operate the facility for a pre-decided time period and then handover the operations to the customer in a phased manner
