  • Make better business decisions

When businesses need to make decisions around automation, data-backed metrics can assist in making the right moves. Analyzing customer usage and performance metrics are just two examples of how users can better understand how customers use their robots, and track the success of scaling a deployment

  • Prove ROI to customers

ROI is one of the most vital metrics to prove when it comes to physical automation. By utilizing Formant Analytics to demonstrate quantifiable improvements, users can prove to their customers that their fleet delivers a positive return. Plus, the ability to build customizable dashboards and monthly ROI reports enables them to showcase the value of robotic investments quickly and easily. 

Formant Analytics is built on the Formant cloud robotics platform and offers a unified data offering, eliminating the need for complex data engineering processes. Non-technical users can use a simple click interface to create insightful visualizations, while developers with basic SQL knowledge can easily build and share dashboards. The platform also allows users to utilize the AI SQL module to help write queries to get the most out of your data.
