First of all, it saves space. Comparing to the conventional storage methods that require a lot of space, automated storage have the maximal storage capacity due to the compact design and the utilization of the available room height.
The automated system saves time as well. At conventional storage systems the users need to walk between the shelfs and search for their requested items and it takes more time than the same action with the automated systems. It is more efficient to bring the goods to the man instead of bring the man to the goods.
Another advantage of the system is that the requested items brought automatically to the retrieval height just by pressing a button. If you have conventional warehouse you know that the users have to stretch, bend or climb ladders to retrieve storage parts.
In addition, automated storage protects your items from all kind of problems like dirt, damage and unauthorized access.
