Warehouse automation requires a combination of hardware, software, and services optimized for each customer and facility. inVia Robotics Inc. today announced that it has made agreements with more than 10 companies as part of its channel partner program. Westlake Village, Calif.-based inVia said the joint technology offerings will supplement its direct-sales efforts through new channels, including international markets.
In addition, the company said the program will expand its ability to provide its artificial intelligence-driven optimization software and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to e-commerce fulfillment centers facing accelerated customer demand.
inVia Robotics named as certified partners Argon Consulting, Atlantic Packaging, Conveyor Logistics, Innovation-Matrix, Midland Packaging, Pregis, Ryuu, STG Chile, and Storage Solutions Inc. In addition, the inVia channel program includes alliances with a variety of companies that provide complementary offerings to inVia's robotics-as-a-service (RaaS) offerings.
As part of the program, partners can integrate inVia's products into their systems. The company said it chose its partners based on their ability to integrate technologies that increase the value and returns on investment for retailers and third-party logistics providers (3PLs).
