GRSI and Invata Intralogistics, Inc. have merged their two companies to further benefit their already 10-year long working relationship in hopes to achieve synergies and benefits from their partnership.

GRSI is a global provider of supply chain execution software, distribution center automation and system integration. Invata Intralogistics, Inc. is a global supplier of supply chain optimization, facilities integration, software and controls.

The two conducted thorough research into the needs of the marketplace in preparation for their merger. Results of the study were a key factor in the unanimous agreement by both company directors to conclude in this merger agreement.

Many supply chain and C-level leaders across a broad range of target markets were interviewed about their attitudes and experiences related to large asset-based system integrators, those with in-house supply chain software and controls and dealer channel integrators, as well.

CEO of GRSI, Steve Martyn, says their approach to managing inventory in motion is essential as companies implement more sophisticated automation projects. Martyn also notes that traditional WMS suppliers are simply too removed from these sophisticated devices to manage them efficiently or cost-effectively.

Invata is a system integrator with in-house software products and services, in addition to its focus on logistics network optimization. CEO, Ryan Sheehan, says the company views the market through a different lens than typical integrators as they approach the market with a focus on inventory, transportation, infrastructure and labor. The company is able to invest in the best people and technology to meet the needs of their clients.

GRSI is the developer of FastTrak WM+, a warehouse management suite that seamlessly integrates traditional WMS functionality with a Warehouse Control System, Order Management System and Packaging Integration applications.
