Buchs/Aarau, 1 May 2017 – Swisslog has won the Gold Award for Best Vendor Blog in the Warehouse Technology Writers’ Awards 2017 which recognize top writing talent across the warehouse and supply chain industries from all types of publications.
Swisslog’s blog includes articles offering guidance to readers looking to enter the world of robotics and big data intralogistics, or improve their existing strategy. It was praised for its easily-navigable page structure, well-researched opinion pieces and ability to present complex topics in an easy-to-follow manner.
Besides the Gold Award for Best Vendor Blog, A.K Schultz, Swisslog’s Vice President of E-Commerce/Retail WDS Americas and regular blog contributor, also received a Bronze Award in the Best Article category, for his post ‘Interoperability: what is it and why should you care’.
Cathrin Völz, Head of Marketing at Swisslog Warehouse & Distribution Solutions, is delighted with the honor: “Winning the Best Vendor Blog Award as well as a Bronze Award in the Best Article category underlines the quality of our blog and the added value we provide for the logistics community.”
Swisslog, as a provider of flexible, robotic and data-driven automated intralogistics solutions, offers insight into the latest trends and developments in the logistics industry with its blog. Although topics such as Industry 4.0 reveal a lot of information, the company keeps the focus on intralogistics, helping the reader to classify new technologies.
A.K. Schultz’s article about interoperability – or in his words “the ability of systems to transact with other systems” – is a great example of this, explained by a path of three steps so that the reader can easily follow the discussion.
Jury convinced by the clear structure and content
The final results were decided by a combination of recommendations from the two awards judges and a public vote. Awards judge and Explore WMS editor Kathryn Beeson said: “We had a lot of top quality entries to the awards, making the judging process an enjoyably difficult one. Nevertheless, I felt that the insights Swisslog’s blog provides and its clear presentation of complex subjects really stood out. As we were judging the blog as a whole as well as the articles on there, I was also drawn to Swisslog’s breadth of content and the clear layout. The advanced search function, which allows readers to filter blog posts by industry, country and date, is also a nice touch.”
