Addverb Technologies Pvt. Ltd. this week announced that it has partnered with software developer and systems integrator Numina Group. The Noida, India-based company plans to expand deployment of its mobile robots for North American warehouses and provide Numina Group's software customers with access to order-fulfillment automation.
“Addverb Technologies offers a variety of solutions to fit any customer's needs, including fixed and flexible automation solutions running on our end-to-end, AI-powered software platform,” stated Sriram Sridhar, chief revenue officer of Addverb Technologies USA Inc. “Together, we create a powerful offering that provides the best service and solutions to clients in the Americas market that need to improve order fulfillment throughput infrastructure using scalable and modular platforms.”
Founded in 2016, Addverb offers autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), materials handling systems, integration services, and artificial intelligence software. The company, whose U.S. unit is based in Frisco, Texas, obtained $132 million in funding in January and announced plans to expand in the U.S. last month.
RDS adds voice to Dynamo AMRs
The Numina Group said it focuses on defining leaner, more productive processes, managed with leading-edge warehouse automation software and technologies. Its Real-Time Distribution Software (RDS) is a modular warehouse control and execution system (WCS-WES) with a pre-developed suite of order-fulfillment picking, packing, and shipping automation modules. The company has also worked with Waypoint Robotics.
RDS uses voice commands to direct warehouse workers wearing mobile computers and wireless headsets. It includes pick-by-voice, pick-to-light, and pre-developed application programming interfaces (APIs) for integrating goods-to-person (G2P) and AMRs to lower labor costs and optimize distribution operations.
Numina will start with Addverb's Dynamo series of AMRs, which collaborate with human order pickers to increase efficiency. Such robots are an attractive option for replacing or augmenting conventional conveyor-based systems because they are cost-effective and rival or surpass their efficiency, said Addverb.
AMRs can navigate multiple zones and pick points in the warehouse, transport products to a consolidated packing point, and increase safety measures by handling the heavy lifting, the company said. Addverb's robots can lift and transport up to 850 lb. (385.5 kg) in a single trip.
Addverb and Numina to exhibit at MODEX
Addverb and Numina Group said their partnership will enable warehouses to “double their productivity to achieve peak performance and accuracy.”
“The latest generation of autonomous mobile robots is the right technology for many fulfillment operations to reduce labor and achieve a high accuracy pick and pack process and provide a quick ROI [return on investment],” said Dan Hanrahan, founder and CEO of Numina Group. “Increasingly, Addverb's expertise in robot-based hardware and software technologies will enable us to offer more customized solutions and choices for our customers.”
The companies will demonstrate their integrated systems at MODEX 2022 in Atlanta from March 28 to 31. The Dynamo AMRs will be in Numina's booth, B1813, and Addverb's booth, C8470. They will transport and collaboratively batch picking orders in an optimized travel path.
Limited spots are available for interviews and product demonstrations. To learn more or schedule a demonstration, contact Luke Lee at Addverb or Jen Maloney at Numina Group.
