PINC nominated finalist for the 2017 MHI Innovation Award

PINC's inventory robotics solution, PINC Air, has been selected as one of the most innovative solutions of 2017.

ALAMEDA, Calif. - Feb. 21, 2017 -- PINC, the #1 provider of yard management, finished vehicle, and inventory robotics solutions to the world's leading brands, is honored to be nominated as one of the four finalists in the New Product Category for the 2017 MHI Innovation Award with PINC Air.

PINC Air allows companies to apply drone technology, coupled with advanced RFID and optical sensor capabilities, to significantly improve the operational effectiveness and efficiency of inventory checks. The system can be ordered by the operator to perform automatic inventory checks throughout the warehouse, accurately identifying inventory in putaway locations, at the frequency chosen by the user. Moving the process of information capture into the air provides on demand checks and avoids the time, expense, and risk of using a people lift to access difficult to reach locations within the warehouse.

The MHI Innovation Award serves to educate and provide valuable insights on the latest manufacturing and supply chain products and services. Companies were called to submit a new product, product line, technology or service or new application of existing products or technology that create quantifiable and sustainable results in terms of ROI, cost savings, customer satisfaction, etc.

"We are very thrilled by this nomination. Nothing excites us more at PINC than working on innovative solutions that provide value to our customers and to the supply chain industry as a whole," commented Matt Yearling, PINC's CEO. "Inventory counting and reconciliation are well known challenges at every company I talk to. It's a great honor to help industry leading organizations overcome this popular problem with our technology."

On Monday, April 3, 2017, PINC and finalists will present their unique solutions to a panel of judges on the show floor at ProMat 2017. The winners in each category will be announced at ProMat 2017 on April 5 during the MHI Industry Night. PINC is an exhibitor at ProMat 2017 and the company's booth number is S4478.
