With many online and offline channels of sales available, and various services offered like same-day-delivery or store pick-up, customer preferences have evolved. This has forced companies to improve efficiency and reduce the order-to-delivery time. The sheer volume and mix of orders mean that warehouses across the world are under increasing pressure to deliver in the shortest possible time. Traditional rigid warehouse automation fail to deliver and flexible automation is the only viable solution for warehouses to gain a competitive advantage. The autonomous mobile robots from Grey Orange is an excellent example of goods-to-man automation.


GreyOrange Butler

The GreyOrange Butler is an advanced autonomous mobile robot that uses robotic goods-to- person technology for automated put-away, inventory storage, replenishment and order picking in fulfilment and distribution centers. This goods-to-man automation system with robots in warehouse, adapts seamlessly to changing inventory profiles, demand patterns and peaks. Modular system architecture ensures bi-directional scalability to increase storage volume or fulfillment throughput independently, by adding more storage racks or robots, as needed.

Order Fulfillment Optimized

The Butler system consists of Butler Robots (Autonomous mobile robots), Pick/Put stations, Mobile Storage Units (MSU), Auto-Charging stations, and the brain of the system is the GreyMatter, an end-to-end intelligent order fulfillment software platform that controls and manages various devices to drive autonomous collaboration.

The Components


goods-to-man automation mobile robots

The Butler Robot: M

  • Payload : 500 kgs
  • Moves in sync and has rotatable lift*
  • Multi-deep storage technology for smart space allocation that enhances storage density

Autonomous Mobile Robots

The Butler Robot: XL

  • Payload : 1600 kgs
  • Payload type : Pallets, Drums, Sacks, Cartons and many more
  • Moves in sync and has rotatable lift*
  • Multi-deep storage technology for smart space allocation that enhances storage density



*Butlers move in sync that reduces operator waiting time and ensures higher Butler productivity. Rotatable Lift * ensures efficient storage and reduced aisle space thereby improving the overall throughput by Butler system.



Mobile Storage Units (MSU)

  • Store big and small cases, indivisible items , pallets and much more.
  • Ability to reconfigure when inventory characteristics change over time.
  • Variants : Hangers for apparel, bins for auto - spare parts and pallet barrel drums for manufacturing.



*Butlers move in sync that reduces operator waiting time and ensures higher Butler productivity. Rotatable Lift * ensures efficient storage and reduced aisle space thereby improving the overall throughput by Butler system.



Pick Put Stations(PPS)

  • Multi-purpose workstation with multi-lingual user interface for guided pick, putaway, audit and returns operations
  • Enables operator to fulfill up to 48 orders simultaneously
  • Variants: Supports various configurations including pallet handling, put from / pick to conveyor and roll cages



*Butlers move in sync that reduces operator waiting time and ensures higher Butler productivity. Rotatable Lift * ensures efficient storage and reduced aisle space thereby improving the overall throughput by Butler system.



Smart Charging station

  • Intelligent charging algorithm that enables opportunity charging. During non-peak periods, the system takes the opportunity to send the robots with the lowest battery levels to get charged.
  • A full charge of 30 minutes ensures up to 8 hours of operations, while a quick charge of 5 minutes ensures 5 hours of operations.



*Butlers move in sync that reduces operator waiting time and ensures higher Butler productivity. Rotatable Lift * ensures efficient storage and reduced aisle space thereby improving the overall throughput by Butler system.


Multi-Level Operations

The Butler robotic goods-to-person system is built for future expansions. If the business expands the Butler system allows warehouses to grow vertically with multilevel elevated storage space. With its design, the Butler can move within different floors and fulfil the order requirements by picking MSUs from any floor and bringing it to the PPS.
