GREENE, N.Y.— The Raymond Corporation’s iWAREHOUSE® Real-Time Location System (iW.RTLS) has been nominated for the 2022 Edison Best New Product Awards™, an annual competition designed to honor excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design and innovation.
Nominated in the Manufacturing, Transportation, or Logistics category, iW.RTLS is an innovative technology that enables facility managers to manage operations easier and more effectively by monitoring and identifying the movement of lift trucks, personnel and assets in warehouse facilities. iW.RTLS optimizes operations processes, reinforces training and reduces operational costs. Facility management can define specific zones and the system can be configured to bring a Raymond lift truck to a stop or slow down when in those defined zones.
All nominations are vetted by the Edison Award Steering Committee members, who present a slate of finalists to the panel of judges. The panel is composed of over 3,000 senior business executives and academics from across the globe. Final award recognition will be presented at The Edison Awards Gala and Celebration in April 2022 in Fort Myers, Florida.
