Ono (the Korean word for language) + Automation = Onomatic

The name “Onomatic” came to us while on a wintry hike overlooking the high-tech hub of the world, Seoul, Korea.

A fusion of two words: “Ono,”  the Korean word for language, and the English word, “Automation,” the name Onomatic typifies our mission:

To build a universal language of warehouse automation.

We started in your shoes.

When leading the development of a world-class WMS software, our co-founders Nicolas Laplante and Dimitrios Touloumis realized there was no easy way for warehouse operators, equipment vendors, and Cloud platform resellers to integrate warehouse automation into ERP and WMS projects.

We felt your pain.

Deploying warehouse automation before Onomatic was expensive, labor intensive, and complex.

  • Automation integrations between an ERP/WMS platforms with AMRs, conveyors & sortation systems, pick & putwalls, light-directed tasks, palletizers and unit shuttle systems were all billed as one-off projects.
  • Across system interface development, control software implementation, and project management, warehouse operators were paying between $250k to $500k. Per. Piece. Of. Equipment.
  • Automation control systems were primarily hosted ‘on-premise” and required serious server infrastructure to operate.
Our Software Story

Enter Onomatic.

Driven by our own painpoints and backed by supply chain partners, our mighty team set out to bring accessible warehouse automation to all.

The result? By focusing on well-known market gaps, we created the first central warehouse automation system to blend the power of the cloud with smart warehouse equipment. Our out-of-the-box middleware makes warehouse automation flexible, affordable, and intuitive for facilities of all shapes and sizes.
