Siena Analytics: Automation Solutions for Logistics Operations

John Dwinell, Founder
On an everyday basis, distribution centers deal with all the complexities and functional variations involved in their supply chain. They need to gain a clear understanding of the various products coming from different sources and cross-check and verify the inventory. However, with manual processes in place, businesses often struggle to have real-time visibility into high-volume logistics operations and rightly maintain and optimize workflow, which leads to decreased cash flow and increased expenses. The situation has become more complicated due to the unprecedented growth of e-commerce activities during the Covid-19 pandemic. Today, organizations are under tremendous pressure to improve their supply chain and distribution centers’ efficiency.

To this end, Siena Analytics offers solutions to identify, diagnose, and resolve issues for high-volume logistics operations through automation. Leveraging more than 15 years of experience in emerging technologies and designing intelligent automation systems for parcel and distribution facilities, John Dwinell, laid the company’s foundation stone in 2014. He brought together an expert team, including data scientists and logistic experts, to create innovative solutions and subsequently, help retailers and distributors digitally transform their logistic functions. Today, Siena Analytics is widely recognized for enabling businesses to reduce the complexity of their multi-channel sales and global supply chains through the increased use of automation and technology. “We support organizations in obtaining real-time visibility into high-volume logistics and automate the manual workflow to enhance efficiency and optimize supply chain operations,” Dwinell mentions.

He goes on to mention that scanning equipment (that reads barcodes on the packages in the distribution centers) produces a massive amount of data. Moreover, as products flow through distribution centers augmented with cameras, they generate many valuable images. “Siena Analytics captures all the data and images of packages that flow in and out of the distribution center, providing the businesses a virtual inventory of products,” says Dwinell.
After gathering label images and data, the company applies AI to analyze it and extract more information about a product. This information is then presented through actionable dashboards—where and when it’s needed. As such, clients can accelerate business outcomes by ensuring improved maintenance, diagnostics, and workflow optimization. Along with this, the team at Siena Analytics has strong project management skills, which enable them to undertake a customer-centric approach to help clients understand how to leverage the technology for seamlessly running their operations.
