Webcast: Warehouse robotics software - that was then, this is now

Many companies focus their attention on the hardware aspects of robotics systems - that’s what you can easily see. But equally important is the software side of the equation, from navigating integration with WMS and ERP systems to designing and optimizing workflows, orchestrating fulfillment processes, and innovative use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

There have been dramatic advances in the past two years in terms of warehouse robotics software. This broadcast will provide a non-commercial look at those advances, how they impact use cases and deployment, and where robotics software is headed.

What do organizations need to know to maximize their robot program success? What are some problems that prevent organizations from achieving flexibility in their warehouse robotics systems? 

Tune into this free discussion addressing these topics and more.
