MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY, PROCUREMENT & SUPPLY CHAIN
Ivanti | March 16, 2023
Ivanti Wavelink today announced that it is merging Ivanti Wavelink and Zebra Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) in manufacturing and warehouse facilities. Ivanti Wavelink, the supply chain operation unit at Ivanti, and Zebra Technologies Corporation, an inventor at the forefront of its line of business with solutions and partners that deliver a performance edge, will accelerate the effectiveness of automation. The solution will boost productivity and efficiency while letting workers focus on high-value tasks.
The integration of Ivanti Wavelink's Velocity Voice Direction platform with Zebra's Fetch AMRs will increase automation for businesses that seek to streamline complex material transportation procedures. Zebra AMRs may now be controlled by Velocity apps or voice direction without modifying the host WMS, ERP, or other enterprise systems, making robots easy to integrate into workflows. Robots can reduce manual material handling by 50%, enhancing production, workflow, and safety.
The Velocity platform guides Zebra AMRs through workflows, which adds value to operations for moving and handling goods. Ivanti Neurons for IIoT insights give customers visibility into AMR status, including what task each robot is doing and any delays or disturbances.
James Lawton, General Manager and Vice President of Robotics Automation at Zebra Technologies, remarked, "Our customers recognize that automation is key to the future of their operations and are ready to make investments in strategies and solutions that can get them where they need to be quickly."
He added, "Integrating Ivanti Wavelink's Velocity platform with our Fetch AMRs brings the kind of sophistication customers are looking for – in this case, integrating voice commands with AMRs, so work gets done quickly, correctly and without friction."

Brandon Black, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Ivanti, stated, "This partnership is another example of how our 'hands off the host app' approach that is a core tenet of the Ivanti Wavelink's Velocity platform can aid in increasing productivity, accuracy, and safety. Because Velocity interfaces with existing enterprise applications without the need to migrate or modify the host application, there is minimal implementation time."

Rootstock Software, a recognized leader in the Manufacturing Cloud ERP space, today announced that it has renewed its partnership with Climate Vault, an award-winning non-profit that reduces and removes carbon emissions.
“Today, the way we live and do business continues to impact our planet and environment,” said David Stephans, CEO of Rootstock Software. “As a cloud ERP provider with a remote workforce, our carbon footprint is relatively small, but the audiences we serve, which are mainly mid- to large-sized manufacturers, have a huge potential to make an impact.”
Rootstock Software initially became a Climate Vault partner in 2020, which means the company has been one of Climate Vault’s first and original champions. Since then, Rootstock’s contributions have allowed Climate Vault to purchase and vault carbon allowance permits, equivalent to 1,623 metric tons of CO2 from government-regulated compliance markets. In other words, the company’s contributions have neutralized CO2 emissions that would have occurred if 182,626 gallons of gas were consumed, or 1.8 million pounds of coal were burned.
“Atmospheric levels of CO2 have reached the highest levels ever recorded. To help combat this climate challenge, we’re proud to support Climate Vault’s innovative approach to carbon reduction. It’s a fast, credible, and verifiable way for manufacturers to neutralize their carbon footprint and can serve as a valuable component to their sustainability plans,” added Stephans. “This year, we’ll be working with Climate Vault to raise awareness of their program among our manufacturing audiences and looking at ways our Cloud ERP can help manufacturers track carbon reduction and offsetting efforts.”
"We are thrilled to work with Rootstock on this important commitment to reduce their emissions footprint and support their sustainability goals," said Michael Greenstone, Co-Founder of Climate Vault and Milton Friedman Distinguished Service Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago.
Climate Vault’s breakthrough solution has driven significant impact since its inception and is poised for scaling. In just over a year, the company has reduced nearly one million metric tons of carbon emissions, the equivalent to eliminating 185,304 cars from the road for one year.
At Rootstock Software, our connected Manufacturing Cloud ERP enables hundreds of manufacturers to turbocharge their operations in a dynamic, post-pandemic world. With our solution natively built on the Salesforce Platform, our customers leverage the industry’s leading Cloud ERP, Rootstock, to connect with their suppliers, trading partners, and the broader ecosystem.
