Fizyr, providing the smartest and fastest vision AI available for robotic systems, today announced its hire of Ken Fleming as CEO to lead the business into its critical North American and European expansion. Fizyr co-Founder and previous CEO Herbert ten Have remains as Director of Strategic Alliances, continuing in his role as a robotics industry visionary.
“Labor availability, reliability and performance have become major issues for supply chain management. Fizyr radically improves automation efforts for warehouses and 3PLs in eCommerce, retail and logistics with its vision AI solutions for robotics,” said Fleming. “Businesses can slash the need for human intervention, protect and better retain their workforces, increase safety compliance, and automate tasks they never thought possible with Fizyr.”
Before joining Fizyr, Fleming served as president of Logistyx Technologies, where he led the acquisitions of several world-leading parcel shipping technology companies to form, launch and grow Logistyx into a leading provider of strategic parcel shipping and fulfillment technology that was acquired by e2open Parent Holdings, Inc. in March 2022. With more than 25 years of management experience in software and technology services, he has managed operations in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany and the Netherlands.
“With the methodologies and algorithms we developed to enhance the vision AI experience through supervised machine learning, Fizyr renders industry standard processes for picking a wide variance of items and parcels obsolete. By running our algorithms on state-of-the-art neural networks to analyze 2D and 3D images, Fizyr extracts essential information to focus on key parameters and deliver highly precise instructions to the picking robots for unparalleled picking capabilities,” said Fleming.
With Fizyr, robots pick with unprecedented success rates, handle a wide variety of goods, palletize and depalletize, and even boost compliance by automating non-compliant heavy lifting that has long drained the productivity, satisfaction and safety of fulfillment and logistics professionals.
