As installations of mobile robots grow, so does the need for software to effectively manage them. However, this can add complexity, as such tools must not only govern the robots, but they must also integrate with other systems and processes.

Warehouses, distribution centers, and manufacturing plants have to identify their pain points, find the best solutions and partners, and carefully manage change. What other equipment needs to be orchestrated in a given facility? How much staff training is required? What data is relevant, and how is it collected, analyzed, and ultimately used?

The still-evolving tech stack for managing robot fleets includes vendors’ proprietary systems and third-party software for robot operations. It also includes connections to inventory, labor management, and warehouse or manufacturing execution systems.

The promise of easily managing and scaling robot fleets can be realized with the right combination of tools, people, and processes.
