On this episode I was joined by Keith Moore of Autoscheduler. Keith is the Chief Product Officer at Autoscheduler where they focus on intelligent warehouse orchestration. We discuss how Autoscheduler got its start, what it does and how it will help companies grow into the future.
- Autoscheduler is intelligent warehouse orchestration or as Keith says for now it is a warehouse optimization resource until they can come up with a better name or acronym. But the name or acronym doesn’t matter as long as it can perform and provide value which it most certainly does. Originally developed for Proctor & Gamble to help properly schedule all of their work loads between multiple different shifts, Autoscheduler has now grown into a well developed solution that is available to all companies. Its main purpose is to help take all of the different outputs that each system an operation can be using creates and match them up to ensure that work is getting scheduled at the proper times and the times that make sense.
- As companies start to add on multiple systems through growth there are often many times where it is difficult to get the information from one system to sync up with another. It has often been a tedious task or one that involves some heavy customization by the company. Through Autoscheduler the systems are now able to align and communicate more efficiently reducing the tedious tasks that existed before. As Keith explains, by simply checking boxes within the platform of how you want tasks to be done it will schedule all tasks to be done that way for the length of time desired. This greatly reduces wasted time within the operation as it will take into account where things need to be as well to have the best flow.
- With more technologies being introduced to our world every day, more systems are being introduced as well to support the technology and also generate the data needed to drive theses technologies. The solution that Autoscheduler provides will help companies handle these growth phases as it will ensure that everything continues to flow together. Additionally, Keith mentions how they are looking at their technology in the way that everyday consumers look at their technology which allows for quick and seamless updates as well as very fast implementations which is more of what someone would expect. It will be interesting to see how they develop into the future.
