“Today’s multichannel retail and consumer demands require fulfillment operations to deliver orders faster and more efficiently than ever before,” said Greg Cronin, executive vice president of Intelligrated. “The acquisition of Knighted enhances Intelligrated’s ability to deliver modular solutions that are not only easy to implement and upgrade, but are also capable of making decisions at the speed of automation, increasing distribution and fulfillment capacity and lowering supply chain costs.”
