CINCINNATI—Intelligrated, a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider with operations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Brazil, has acquired Datria Systems, Inc., a provider of voice-enabled solutions for today’s mobile workforce.
Datria will become part of Intelligrated’s software subsidiary, Knighted.
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.
Datria, with offices in Denver, CO, provides voice-enabled solutions for distribution and logistics, retail store operations, mobile field service management, and manufacturing processes. The voice solutions allow employees to connect and communicate directly to the systems that support their business processes. Rather than using keystrokes or paper, employees can connect in real-time on a wide variety of mobile devices, from smart phones to industrial handhelds, using their voice.
Datria’s innovative, cloud-based VoIP architecture is an ideal complement to the portfolio of solutions available through Intelligrated.
The company will immediately begin to integrate Datria technology with the Knighted software platform. The integration of voice technology will further enhance Intelligrated’s ability to deliver modular solutions that streamline operations, improve productivity and accuracy, and maximize the value of labor, automation and supervisory control.
“Our goal is to continue to develop software solutions that improve operational efficiency and lower supply chain costs,” says Intelligrated executive vice-resident Greg Cronin. “We will continue to invest in our software teams and develop innovative software and services using the latest tools and technologies.”
Datria’s key customers include Coca-Cola Refreshments, Roche Diagnostics, Swire, Merrill Corporation and Progressive International. Intelligrated and Knighted will provide ongoing support of existing Datria installations and will offer Datria Voice as a stand-alone solution.
Datria chief executive officer James Greenwell will remain in a senior management role, reporting to Greg Cronin, executive vice-president of Intelligrated.
