Katalyst Technologies Unveils Game Changing Optimized Picking Algorithm

CHICAGO, Jan. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Katalyst Technologies, Inc., a global technology services and solutions provider, has invented a new algorithm for picking inventory in warehouses and stores (patent pending). Katalyst's findings suggest that its new algorithm results in a 25-70% decrease in the distance travelled by pickers in collecting batches of items, leading to significant cost savings.  Furthermore, with the drive towards same-day pickup or delivery of products, reducing picking times is essential in meeting this sales strategy.

In addition to the savings in picking costs, Katalyst's new algorithm, unlike commonly used heuristic approaches, may be used in warehouses with any layout, not just standardized ones with parallel rows of shelves. This flexibility with circular and irregular layouts significantly broadens the applicability of the Katalyst approach.

Additionally, the computational efficiency of Katalyst's approach makes it appropriate for uses such as rapid recalculation for alternate or restock locations, again improving the applicability of the method.
