(Cincinnati: May 23, 2011) Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a leading North American-owned automated material handling solutions provider, announces the release of “Sorting Out Your Sortation Options,” an introductory white paper for those currently in the process of choosing the right “mission-critical” solution for their distribution, fulfillment or manufacturing operation.

The paper introduces and guides readers through the process of evaluating their operation’s critical requirements, including item handling and rate requirements. Featuring detailed charts of typical sortation technology capabilities, the paper enables readers to compare and assess their requirements in relation to the most widely accepted and available sortation technologies. A glossary and example case study is also provided.

“With so many sortation options available to the industry today, it is important that customers know what technologies are best suited for their operation,” said Jim McKnight, senior vice president, system sales and marketing, Intelligrated. “This paper is one of the many tools that Intelligrated provides to help companies fairly evaluate all of their options and empower them to demand the solution that is right for their application.”
