Preparing for both upcoming obstacles and scaling needs keeps our customers agile and pivot-ready when circumstances change.”
- Multiagent orchestration platforms act like intelligent middleware that integrate and orchestrate work between various business applications, heterogenous fleets of operational robots, and other automated agents like doors or elevators within the four walls of a warehouse or distribution center operation.
- Companies will need an orchestration capability that can assign work to the right robots based on near-real-time information and the characteristics of the activity according to Gartner's research in their 2023 predictions article.
- A recent Gartner report provides a detailed analysis of the future needs of end-users and supply chain organizations may be affected by not investing in emerging technologies in the future. They have also predicted that by 2026 over 50% of companies deploying intralogistics robots in the warehouse will have a multiagent orchestration platform.
- GreyOrange recently announced an open API (application programming interface) to GreyMatter that enables any certified vendor’s robotic solution to seamlessly connect to the fulfillment orchestration platform, giving customers the freedom to choose the technology that best fits their warehouse environment.
