Zurich - On is leveraging Verity's fully autonomous inventory drones to manage its stock levels. The manufacturer of premium sports shoes and clothing is partnering with Verity to improve the efficiency and precision of On's supply chain.

On and Verity have announced a partnership. On plans to deploy fleets of fully autonomous inventory drones from the artificial intelligence and robotics company Verity to transform its warehouse processes and optimize inventory management. The goal is to minimize stock shortages, incorrect orders and shrinkage throughout the entire supply chain, according to a statement

Verity's inventory drones are currently in use in more than 80 warehouses operated by different clients worldwide, where they carry out millions of fully autonomous stock checks every month. Verity's drone fleet is also in use at one of On’s plants in the USA, scanning products daily to ensure full stock availability for order fulfilment. It is already improving key performance indicators, according to the company. Verity writes that its customers have seen an average reduction of around 1,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per warehouse per year.

Representatives from the two brands say that they share the same goals, “in particular that of delivering an exceptional customer experience”, Raffaello D'Andrea, co-founder and CEO of Verity, is quoted as saying. He adds: “This synergy is further amplified by our highly robust systems, boasting better than 99.99% reliability rates.”

Caspar Coppetti, co-founder and Executive Co-Chairman at On, aims to leverage innovative technological solutions like Verity’s to “improve our operations’ efficiency further, become a more sustainable brand, and take customer satisfaction to new heights". He continues: "The collaboration of two pioneering Swiss brands can only mean an explosion of innovation!” ce/mm
