STEP UP TO THE WINNER’S CIRCLE OF PRODUCTION EFFICIENCY

With Agilon on your team you’re free to concentrate on specialized, productive work. Instead of being transported by people and forklift trucks, parts, part assemblies and finished products move automatically from one work area to the next – and ultimately to the dispatch department.

On race day every member of Valtteri’s pit lane team has a key role to play they are ready with exactly the parts they’ll need to get Valtteri back on track – as quickly and efficiently as possible. Similarly, Agilon helps industrial logistics teams provide the required parts on demand, so that operations can continue with greater efficiency.

Top racing drivers like Valtteri know that the foundation for a winning performance on race day is built upon by the smart systems and people you have in place. So that when the light turns green you know that you are ready to react to whatever challenges come up during the race – or on the job ahead.

On the race track Valtteri has a world class pit crew behind him, so that when he turns into the pit lane he knows they’re always ready with the right part to get him back on track quickly. It’s the same with Konecranes Agilon. Our material management system ensures that your supply warehouse always contains exactly the items that are required, when you need them, so you can avoid unnecessary delays. Agilon lays the foundation for cost-efficient management of your delivery chain to put you in a great position to win.

Agilon also improves efficiency, convenience and accuracy in retail operations. Retail customers using Agilon-driven automatic parcel terminals can give their customers what they want – when and where they need it. Agilon terminals are often accessible 24 hours a day, so customers can receive their parcels just when they choose to – meaning Agilon gives them full control over both the time and place of their delivery.

These terminals can be shared by all couriers, allowing retailers’ online customers to receive all their parcels from just one location, reducing retailers’ logistic costs.

GET OFF TO A FLYING START

Agilon – like Valtteri Bottas – is ready to make a flying start. The system requires nothing more than suitable premises, an internet connection and a grounded electrical socket – it’s very simple to install. You can count on the experts at Konecranes to handle the rest and you’ll soon be up to speed with an Agilon solution that suits your premises and specific production or retail requirements.

We also offer design services, deployment support services and the possibility to connect Agilon to other enterprise resource planning solutions. Software updates and module maintenance ensure that your Agilon system remains up to date. As Valtteri knows, in today’s fast-paced world if you don’t have the most efficient processes in place, you’re losing those precious time-savings that can be crucial to helping you win.

That’s why at Konecranes, we believe that Agilon is the epitome of Efficiency Connected, effectively connecting demand to supply.
