GREENE, N.Y., December 17, 2018 — The Raymond Corporation was listed as a FL100+ Top Software and Technology Provider for its supplemental virtual reality educational tool that’s helping close the manufacturing skills gap and attract younger talent to the industry. The Raymond Virtual Reality Simulator allows users to enter a simulated warehouse environment and become familiar with a Raymond forklift and its controls — using an actual Raymond truck — prior to operating on the warehouse floor.
“Raymond is proud to be listed among other reputable software and technology providers that are advancing the global food and beverage industry,” said Dave Norton, vice president of corporate quality and customer care, Raymond. “Our goal with the Raymond Virtual Reality Simulator is to provide a real-world experience for forklift operators — offering engaging educational modules based on fundamental principles and best practices that prepare individuals for the warehouse floor.”
The annual FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers resource guide names those suppliers whose products and services are critical for global food and beverage supply chain companies.
“The digital supply chain continues its rapid emergence, bringing with it expanded capabilities that impact visibility, security, compliance and efficiency,” said Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director for Food Logistics. “Every aspect of the global food supply chain can benefit from new and innovative software and technology that is fundamentally changing the global food supply chain.”
