Note: An earlier version of this press release referred to "SYNA.OS" and the "SYNA.OS Logistics Platform" as well as our product "Warehouse Management System". The terms have since changed and have been replaced in this press release by "SYNAOS Intralogistics Management Platform" and "Warehouse Execution" respectively.

Hanover/Munich, May 31, 2022. SYNAOS GmbH, software provider for AI-optimized intralogistics, today received the "BEST PRODUCT" award in the Software, Communication & IT category from the organizer of LogiMAT in Stuttgart for its SYNAOS Intralogistics Management Platform. LogiMAT, International Trade Fair for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management, is the largest annual intralogistics trade fair in Europe.

The SYNAOS Intralogistics Management Platform (IMP) is an innovative, cloud-based system that manages the increasing complexity of intralogistics processes and grows with the dynamic requirements of customers. The platform offers a wide range of skills that revolutionize the way intralogistics works. The SYNAOS IMP synchronizes all transport vehicles - mobile robots such as AGVs and AMRs or manned vehicles such as forklifts - as well as assets, such as traffic lights or gates in a factory, warehouse or logistics center, and employees, regardless of manufacturer and based on real-time data. Algorithms distribute tasks, determine routes and continuously check whether course corrections are necessary. In the event of sudden failures or changes, the software immediately redistributes tasks, preventing delays.

This is made possible by the computing power from the cloud: The algorithms always determine the best solution from 250,000 possible alternatives per second. The cloud-based SaaS approach and the standardized interfaces also lead to a low-effort and fast commissioning of the SYNAOS IMP and make the system easily scalable and expandable. SYNAOS is a leader in the implementation of the VDA 5050 interface and currently holds two world records for heterogeneity and scaling over the VDA 5050.

SYNAOS co-founder and CEO Dr. Wolfgang Hackenberg: "We are very happy about the LogiMAT award and are incredibly proud of it. The fact that we have won this renowned and traditional award proves that we are on the right track with our vision of a holistic intralogistics management platform! Our Mobile Robot Fleet Management is now being used successfully by global corporations such as Volkswagen and ZF, and our large partner network also supports the success of the platform. With our new Warehouse Execution solution, we have added another important building block to the SYNAOS IMP, which will become a real gamechanger especially for e-commerce companies of all kinds."

The winners of the award, which is being presented for the 19th time this year, are selected by an independent jury that critically examines the submitted applications in the run-up to the trade fair. Jury members include representatives from business, academia and the media. The prize has now established itself as one of the most coveted awards in the intralogistics industry.
