Barcodes Inc. yesterday said it has launched its new mobile robot portfolio, which it claimed will provide businesses with “intelligent automation that is easy to implement and delivers rapid ROI [return on investment].” The enhanced platform is designed to cater to a wide range of applications, from warehousing and fulfillment to Manufacturing, allowing for improved accuracy and speed without significant cost or infrastructure changes, said the company.
“Our new robotics platform will ease the labor shortage pain our customers face today,” said Daniel Nettesheim, president and CEO of Barcodes Group. “It will bring better throughput and speed with higher scalability, so businesses can focus on their growth.”
Barcodes Group provides systems to improve mobility, visibility, and automation for organizations around the world. With more than 25 years of experience and partnerships with leading technology manufacturers, the Chicago company offers platforms for enterprise mobility, automated vision and labeling, RFID, warehouse robotics, access control systems, and more.
Platform includes 12-robot fleet
The Barcodes Group Platform addresses the growing demand for supply chain efficiency and the need to keep labor costs low, as qualified workers become increasingly hard to find, said the company.
Barcodes' portfolio includes a 12-robot hardware fleet, quick-to-deploy integration software, interoperability and fleet management software, and end-to-end deployment services. Businesses can hire robots for as low as $2 per hour with Barcodes Group's robotics-as-a-service (RaaS) model.
The company said its platform can deliver a broad range of benefits to customers, including:
- 20+ material handling workflows with a fleet of 12 autonomous mobile robots (AMRs)
- Deployment of robots in hours with integration software that connects warehouse management systems (WMS) to AMRs
- Savings from Day 1 with monthly RaaS contracts
- Easy adoption and scalability of workflows with cloud-based software
- Increased productivity by eliminating non-value-added material movements.
“Our wide-ranging AMR applications and ability to integrate with almost any WMS, Voice, and IoT is industry-leading,” said Manthan Pawar, group product manager for robotics at Barcodes Group. “With costs as low as $2 per hour and Day 1 savings, the adoption of modern technology like robotics is easier than ever.”

Barcodes Group will showcase its AMR fleet at ProMat, which will be on March 20 to 23 in Chicago. It will be at Booth S1988 in McCormick Place.
