Voodoo Robotics was featured in Modern Materials Handling magazine. The article, authored by Roberto Michel, editor at large for Modern Materials Handling, discussed how the high level of each picking associated with e-commerce, pick-to-light (PTL) systems are becoming more popular. To make PTL and associated inventory management capabilities easier to implement, warehouse automation provider Voodoo Robotics is touting a PTL solution offered under a pay-as-you-go model.
“The key thing is that it is a rental, month-to-month solution, which makes it low cost and really helps with seasonality,” says Trevor Blumenau, CEO of Voodoo Robotics. “It does not require a big upfront commitment, so it makes the system easily accessible to user companies.”
Voodoo’s PTL tags are wireless and powered by two AA batteries, which eliminates the need to run power to the tags. The inventory management capabilities for the solution come from Voodoo’s SKU-Keeper, Cloud-based software, which can manage inventory, govern the PTLs, and provide traceability and reporting.

About Voodoo Robotics:
Voodoo Robotics (https://voodoorobotics.com/starter-kit/), the leading innovator in picking warehouse automation, provides cost-effective technology for warehouse inventory management and order fulfillment solutions. With engineering and robotic expertise, the Texas-based pioneer brings the next wave of state-of-the-art automation to material handling industries.
Voodoo offers a unique lease-based Pick-to-Light system designed to modernize warehouse operations by leveraging the latest IIoT (Industrial Internet-of-Things) technology. The picking hardware integrates effortlessly with existing WMS (Warehouse Management Systems), or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems allowing distribution centers, warehouses, and 3PLs (third party logistics) to scale operations, only paying for the lights needed each month. This revolutionary approach to leasing Pick-to-Light devices on a month-to-month, pay-as-you-go basis avoids long-term commitments and costly up-front fees.
A companion product, SKU-Keeper Inventory Management, is designed for warehouses that do not have an existing WMS or ERP system. Emphasizing simplicity and ease-of-use, the cloud software is also leased on a low-cost, low-risk month-to-month basis.
The company also provides smart, ROI (return-on-investment) driven Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) with an innovative 3D user interface, compatible with Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari. The robotic systems are designed, simulated and run, all using a Warehouse Descriptive Language (WDL), a concept invented by the company.
All of Voodoo Robotics products are patented or patent-pending. Currently the company is attracting best-practice, lean manufacturing focused, systems integrators throughout North America. The company is a proud member of MHI.
