Sean has worked closely with a variety of customers and was instrumental in bringing together different solutions into one cohesive offering.

“Swisslog’s portfolio is well positioned for growth in the Americas. We see the most potential for this growth and customer value in three main areas. First is our integrated solutions, including robot-based applications like our ACPaQ mixed case palletizer. Second is standardized ASRS applications, including our CarryPick order picking solution and AutoStore. Third is intelligent software, such as our SynQ management software,” said Sean. “I’m excited to support our customers with the advanced automation solutions and software they need to keep their supply chains running efficiently.”

Sean sees SynQ management software as vital to the company’s continued success and growth. SynQ not only optimizes the flow of the equipment to increase efficiency and accuracy of the operation, it also orchestrates the operation of multiple systems. SynQ is equipping warehouse automation and IT systems with synchronized intelligence of people, processes and machines to boost the efficiency and productivity of warehouse processes and adapt to changing market requirements.
