CINCINNATI, OH | Intelligrated, a provider of automated material handling solutions, reports the successful acquisition of Knighted, a developer of supply chain software solutions headquartered in Ossining, NY. The acquisition is a strategic component of Intelligrated’s mission to deliver innovative solutions that increase fulfillment velocity for e-commerce, multichannel retail, 3PL, wholesale, consumer products, and food and beverage industries.
Knighted products include warehouse management software, warehouse control software, and labor management software. The solutions are said to be an ideal complement to Intelligrated’s portfolio of automated material handling systems, warehouse control systems and order fulfillment software.
“Today’s multichannel retail and consumer demands require fulfillment operations to deliver orders faster and more efficiently than ever before,” says Greg Cronin, executive VP 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.”
Through real-time views into processes, equipment, inventory, and labor information, Knighted’s suite of solutions, now available through Intelligrated, reportedly enable warehouse and distribution centers to streamline operations, improve productivity and maximize the value of labor, automation, and supervisory control.
Knighted will continue to operate independently under the Intelligrated umbrella. Over the coming months, Intelligrated and Knighted will integrate select administrative operations and combine software development resources.
