According to the vendor, the turnkey system fits into existing workflows without necessitating the reconfiguration of floors or changes in shelving. The robots integrate with warehouse-management systems and enterprise resource planning applications. An inVia Robotics Grabit robot can lift items up to 30 pounds and 24 inches wide. It can also reach up to eight feet and work for 10 hours on a single battery charge. Once a product is picked, a Grabit can offload the item to its companion, Transit, which can accumulate orders and transfer them to an awaiting box for shipment. InVia's Robotics Operation Center alerts users to any issues that need to be addressed.
