How can a software solution help you perform an inventory count in your warehouse using a drone? How does the remote implementation of technologies for warehouse automation help ensure personnel safety? How your business can save budget and increase revenue with Solvo solutions? Multinational companies, members of American Chamber of Сommerce in Russia (AmCham) learned about it at the November 25th online Pitch Session.

During the session five IT-companies, members of AmCham, presented high-tech industrial IT solutions. Daniil Pershin, head of the marketing department of SOLVO, spoke about the company's supply chain execution software that has helped the warehouse and ports industry in many World’s regions for more than 25 years now.

The participants had an opportunity to review the capabilities of the new Solvo.SCE technological platform, which incorporates all the main software products of SOLVO in a single environment so the companies can take advantage of seamless integration between different types of software.

“It is obvious in the light of the pandemic, it is crucial to find effective tools to protect the health of employees involved in project implementation and minimize any physical interaction. We a proud to say that together with our partners we can offer various technologies to achieve this goal. For examples, recently, our client, PepsiCo, started using drones for inventory count inside their warehouses operated by Solvo.WMS. Drones can identify, process, collect and transmit the data about warehouse items and their locations along the aisles and thus substitute human operators. This is clearly one of the technologies of the future given the challenges we are now facing”, – noted Daniil Pershin.
