Pioneer & JBT Automated Systems Deliver Automated Guided Vehicles to Largest Hospital in Missouri
Date Posted: June 13, 2018 / Category: Case Studies | Market: Healthcare
At Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, Mo., linens and supplies are now being delivered in an unconventional way.
On an underground delivery network, 20+ Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) from JBT’s Automated Systems Division deliver supplies to supply technicians between hospital facilities.
One of the key components that make the AGVs so successful is Pioneer’s touchscreens.
“Pioneer touchscreens were implemented to help JBT’s end user to more easily manage automated material movements in a hospital environment,” JBT Automated Systems Marketing Specialist Laura McConney explained.
Pioneer’s hardware solutions let individuals choose where to send carts full of linens and other supplies, saving hospital employees time and streamlining the supply delivery process.
“By implementing simple icons on the screens, workers in the hospital can quickly and easily make decisions about the next step in the material transport process,” McConney stated.
Thus far, Pioneer’s hardware has worked seamlessly with JBT’s AGVs by helping the customers to better manage these systems.
