Meet I51T Enterprise Solutions

Exhibiting at IMHX 2022

Stand 5G92

Ahead of IMHX 2022, we caught up with Robin Seymour, CEO of 51T Enterprise Solutions to chat all things IMHX, new product launches, sustainability and key market trends to watch out for.

To learn more about Indigo Software, visit them at IMHX 2022 or head over to the 51T Enterprise Solutions.

The pace of transformation in the past year has certainly kept us on our toes. Those in and outside of the industry have seen first-hand the fragility of supply chains.

As such, we should expect more government-led action to address some of the challenges the industry faces.

And for those at the coalface of logistics, I hope to see more innovative solutions to tackle labour shortage, sustainability and warehouse space challenges.

Of course, we all have to play our part in building resilience in the supply chain, and 51T is no exception.

Our Smart Charging Cabinet, for example, was ahead of its time (launched in 2019); the multi-device charging station is a tech-inspired solution for advanced asset control and management.

Unlike competitive products, the Smart Cabinet is suitable for use in any rugged environment. In addition, it offers the highest level of security in the market and only needs a single three-pin plug for power.

We have continued to develop the product, and we are planning to launch some exciting new features in 2022. 

Over the past year, we've been keeping a keen eye on sustainability discussions.

Our products already offer the most extended warranty in the market (minimum three years, with most products extendable to 5 years), and our failure rate is just under 1%. But we believe we can do more, and in 2022 we will be looking to introduce more recyclable plastics in our products.

We've also set up an e-waste management group on Linkedin with a specific focus on enterprise electronic waste management centred around the UK and Europe. E-waste affects every business, large or small. We all have devices in our pockets, in our offices and warehouses - there are actions we can all take today to help reduce our carbon footprint andkeep the 1.5c goal alive.

I hope our  peers in the sector will join our community and contribute (search for 'Official e-waste management group' via Linkedin to join us).

I don't have a crystal ball, but I expect the adoption of automation to accelerate, and as a consequence, data will grow to play a more significant role in the sector.

However, leaders in the industry need to ensure that we do not leave people behind in embracing automation. Furthermore, business leaders need to ensure that their teams have the resources to cope with the new challenges ahead.
