Ode to holiday fulfillment

T’was the holiday peak season and all through the DC
Not a system was dormant, nor any employee
 
Pickers stay vigilant, filling all the right orders
Ensuring no errors even reach the sorter
 
Value-added services provide a special touch
Gift wrap and cards come through in the clutch
 
Processes work in a fulfillment symphony
But warehouses this season rarely run so simply…
 
From the e-commerce platform arose such a clatter
Supervisors check dashboards to see what’s the matter
 
Massive rush orders that must go out tonight
Cue automation and software to make things right!
 
Orders fly from storage with reason and rhyme
While business intelligence reports in real time
 
Now conveyor! Now sorters! AS/RS, to boot!
On voice, lights and software, direct all the loot!
 
Then holiday dreams take off in the night
Accuracy is a must - the wrong gift causes fright
 
As gifts are unwrapped and smiles appear
Don’t forget what started this wave of good cheer
 
Through generosity and engineering aspiration
The spirit of giving spreads across the nation
 
Happy holidays from Intelligrated!

 

Intelligrated named to 2014 Deloitte Cincinnati USA 100

The Deloitte Cincinnati USA 100 program salutes the outstanding achievements of the area’s privately-owned businesses, recognizing the top 100 private companies based on revenue. Intelligrated made the list for the 8th straight year, ranking 21 out of the 100 companies selected.

Deloitte begins compiling the list in the summer, surveying nearly 650 firms for sales revenue and other data. Along with the 100-company list, Deloitte and the Cincinnati Enquirer publish trends and highlights based on results from the surveys. Their findings include:

  • More than 70 percent responded with reducing corporate tax rates as what the federal government can do to help mid-sized businesses grow in 2015.
  • Nearly half of the companies surveyed said they are likely or very likely to acquire another company in the coming year.

The Deloitte list is the latest Ohio business accolade for Intelligrated in 2014. The company made the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Top 100 Workplaces list as a top large workplace in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. The Cincinnati Business Courier recognized Intelligrated as an engineering finalist for its Innovation Awards and as a finalist for its Fast 55 program, which ranks the fastest-growing private companies in Greater Cincinnati. The Ohio Cooperative Education Association also honored Intelligrated with a Distinguished Employer Award, recognizing the vital role of companies who provide employment and learning opportunities for co-op students.

In the material handling and logistics industry, Intelligrated placed in Modern Materials Handling’s ranking of the top 20 worldwide materials handling system suppliers, the only U.S.-based company in the top 15. Further honors in the industry include recognition as a Top 100 Logistics IT provider by Inbound Logistics and inclusion in the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100.

Intelligrated has grown to more than 2,600 associates worldwide and expects further growth to close 2014. The company continues to develop its presence within the United States and abroad, opening a new southwest regional operation in Texas and expanding its offices in China, Brazil and Canada.
