GreyOrange Inc. this week released its API designed to enable robotic vendors to integrate with the company’s GreyMatter fulfillment orchestration platform. GreyOrange said companies that are part of its Certified Ranger Network, or CRN, ecosystem can now take advantage of the service.
Those companies include HAI Robotics, Fetch Robotics (now Zebra), Mushiny Intelligence, Technica International, Vicarious, and Youi Robotics, among others.
“The open API integration of GreyMatter makes it easy for any robotics manufacturer to partner with us and be part of our ‘platform of choice,’” said Samay Kohli, co-founder and CEO of GreyOrange in a statement. “GreyMatter API is an answer to the global demand for flexible, automated fulfillment solutions that meet customers' specific needs without limiting them to a single vendor’s scope.”
GreyOrange said it developed CRN to serve as a go-to-market partner for all vendors within the network, as well as the single point of contact responsible for customer satisfaction with multi-vendor system operations. The company released the API to eliminate potential integration headaches.
