Agilon® is an automated storage and retrieval system and service, that gives a customer exact information on their materials in real time. Agilon’s advanced modularity optimizes in-house logistics and increases transaction capacity and storage area. The solution consists of a closed unit shelving system, robots travelling within the shelving and an online portal where the customer can remotely track stock information. The system can be adjusted to the customer’s volume, for example, adding modules if they are experiencing a ramp up in volumes.
The system is maintained by Konecranes and can be fully utilized for another customer. A dedicated Konecranes team performs continuous remote monitoring of the system. In the case of system failure, the service team replaces the defect module with a replacement module. Further diagnostics of the defect module is conducted at a Konecranes service center, ensuring minimum downtime on the site. The failed components are analyzed and repaired for re-use.
The system itself is very energy-efficient, easy to set up and does not require modifications to the customer’s premises. This product-as-a-service is an easy solution for the customers, because major up-front investment costs of the equipment can be avoided by leasing the system to the customer with a monthly fee. The lifecycle risk of owning equipment is eliminated, as the leasing agreement can be terminated if there are any changes in demand and the service of the equipment is handled by Konecranes. It is also possible to purchase the Agilon system with the same maintenance services with a smaller monthly fee.
