SYNAOS' Warehouse Execution Solution in Use in New Warehouse of E-Commerce Company Connox

Note: An earlier version of this press release referred to "SYNA.OS" or the solution "SYNA.OS LOGISTICS Warehouse Control System". Our product is now called "SYNAOS Intralogistics Management Platform (IMP)", the warehouse solution "Warehouse Execution". Both have been adjusted in the press release.

  • Fast implementation time, massive increase in efficiency on the shop floor
  • SYNAOS CEO Wolfgang Hackenberg: "The SYNAOS IMP highly relevant for virtually every
    e-commerce company"
  • Connox Managing Director Thilo Haas: "Result went beyond original
  • Important building block in SYNAOS' vision of a holistic intralogistics
    management platform

Hanover, May 11, 2022. SYNAOS, a leading provider of software-based intralogistics solutions, now also offers its SYNAOS Intralogistics Management Platform (IMP) as Warehouse Execution and thus expands its business field into the area of e-commerce. For Connox GmbH, one of the most successful European online stores for high-quality home design, SYNAOS implemented its real-time warehouse control solution in the new 50,000 square meter warehouse in Hanover-Laatzen. By shortening implementation times for users and eliminating potential sources of error, this Door-2-Door solution immediately increases efficiency in the flow of goods.

After expanding its logistics space in Laatzen to 50,000 square metres -
an area the size of seven football pitches - Connox was looking for a
scalable all-in-one solution for coordinating all material flows and
means of transport of its intralogistics. In addition to synchronising and simplifying
existing processes, the new software also had to be able to efficiently master the warehouse team's large
variety of languages. SYNAOS' warehouse control solution
quickly convinced with its extremely intuitive and self-explanatory
user interface.

SYNAOS co-founder and CEO Dr. Wolfgang Hackenberg emphasizes: "We are very proud to count Connox, one of the absolute top players on the web for designer furniture and home accessories, among our customers. We have developed our SYNAOS IMP Warehouse Execution especially for e-commerce companies, so that these innovative and fast growing companies can also benefit from the same advanced processes as our automotive customers already do. Our solutions focus on significant efficiency gains for our customers - no matter what industry vertical is involved. We take a holistic view of intralogistics and aim to revolutionize all industries through software support. Our standardized, scalable process solution pushes the previous boundaries of e-commerce intralogistics. This makes our platform highly relevant for virtually every e-commerce company."

Connox founder and CEO Thilo Haas: "As an e-commerce company, it is particularly important for us to manage our order flow efficiently and without major disruptions. Our rapid growth presents us with completely new challenges, especially in the area of logistics. The implementation of the Warehouse Execution from SYNAOS not only led to the expected result of a Door-2-Door solution for our warehouse in Hanover-Laatzen, but in the end even went beyond the original requirements: By shortening the implementation times for the users and reducing the errors that occur due to misunderstandings and unclear processes, we are already seeing significantly improved efficiency levels a short time after implementation. And the exciting thing is, we're just getting started."

Connox is currently planning its second warehouse and would like to use SYNAOS as an enterprise solution across all locations.

With its Warehouse Execution, SYNAOS adds another important building block to its vision of a holistic intralogistics management platform after the Mobile Robot Fleet Management, as it is already successfully in use at Volkswagen and ZF, for example. Especially an area as dynamic as e-commerce with constantly increasing expectations of the end consumer holds massive potential. Already now the Warehouse Execution of SYNAOS significantly improves the situation in warehouses. Thanks to continuous further development of the platform, SYNAOS customers will benefit from unimagined new possibilities in the future.

SYNAOS is a leading German AI startup that digitizes and automates intralogistics processes in factories and logistics centers. Since 2018, the company has been developing innovative software-as-a-service solutions for the control of driverless transport systems and the integration of manually controlled vehicles. Among others, Volkswagen AG and the e-commerce company Connox already rely on SYNAOS.
Due to the enormous increase in efficiency of factories and logistics centers and the high flexibility of the software, SYNAOS paves the way for the innovations of tomorrow. The three SYNAOS founders Dr. Wolfgang Hackenberg (CEO), Dr. Lennart Bochmann (CPO) and Tobias Gagern (CTO) gained years of experience in the automotive industry as well as in the IT environment. In addition, a top-class advisory board and strong partners support the company in the implementation of its innovative ideas.
