An intelligent enterprise is one that integrates business processes with data to measure and improve performance of business operations. With the increasing maturity of Internet of Things technologies, companies can collect and leverage data like never before.

Let us take you through a day in the life of NI Corporation (a multinational conglomerate) employees in and around warehouse processes – from the warehouse picker, to the warehouse manager, to the CEO, and everything in-between – as they execute, improve, and optimize warehousing operations. We will show you how technologies are leveraged to improve safety, performance, and decision-making. While it could take you years to implement all the technologies applied on this day, we want to inspire you to embark on the journey of developing your company into an intelligent enterprise.

What you will get out of this.

Learn how different roles in an Industry 4.0 warehouse leverage IoT technologies to carry out their duties.

  • How John, the warehouse picker, is able to handle urgent orders on-the-fly without interrupting his pick-path.
  • How Paula, the forklift operator, is able to work safer and more efficiently.
  • How Sarah, the inventory manager, ensures the proper handling of stock in the warehouse.
