Quebec, December 21, 2021 – UgoWork™, a Canadian energy solutions provider specialized in lithium-ion batteries for industrial trucks, today announced that it has won Food Logistics’ 2021 Top Software & Technology Providers Award. This award honors software and technology providers that ensure safe and UL approved, efficient and reliable global cold food and beverage supply chains.
UgoWork helps organizations with manufacturing and warehousing challenges to reduce operational costs through improved efficiency in their material handling operations. Here are some key features:
- Fast and easy charging: Universal charging infrastructure with automotive-grade connectors to power Class I, II and III industrial trucks
- 24/7 support: Cloud-connected batteries enable constant remote monitoring of their state of health to ensure optimal uptimes
- Energy as a service (EaaS): UgoWork’s flexible financing programs and pay-per-use plans offer peace of mind including the replacement and recycling of lithium battery packs.
“Energy as a Service (EaaS) is not new in terms of concept, but needed a technological shift to make it happen in the material handling market. When we launched our lithium-ion battery several years ago, it was clear that our customers did not want batteries. They wanted a turnkey solution where the provider would take 100% responsibility of uptime of the systems and bring complete peace of mind for their operations,” explained Philippe Beauchamp, President and CEO of UgoWork. “We introduced the industry with a battery infrastructure and IoT system that allows just that—and we top it off with a level of technical support that is unmatched in the industry.”
“Software developments and emerging technologies are what make the world go ‘round. They’re what make supply chains move, even when the world stops. They’re what keeps people, products and plants safe. They provide traceability, visibility, efficiency and credibility. And, the winners from this year’s award prove that there are no limitations to what software and technology can do in the supply chain space,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
