LAFAYETTE, IN (May 1, 2017) – Engineering Innovation Inc. (Eii) showcased its new Chameleon parcel processing solution at the ProMat show in Chicago this April, receiving a strong reception from key decision makers in the logistics and e-commerce fulfilment sectors. Eii is excited to announce that it is also exhibiting the Chameleon at the National Postal Forum in Baltimore, May 21-24.
The modular platform is aptly named the Chameleon because it is designed to adapt to the customer’s environment. “The current logistics market cannot survive the lead time required to provide the custom solutions that they require. With the Chameleon, Eii can meet the demands of individual requirements with the lead times of an off-the-shelf solution,” said COO Don Caddy.
The Chameleon makes automation and productivity enhancement cost effective for rapidly growing parcel processing operations. More than fully adaptable, its portability and workflow flexibility enables it to blend into existing operations, interfacing with OMS, WMS and other business systems to simplify the processing of both incoming and outgoing shipments.
