Robotics as a Service, commonly abbreviated as RaaS, is a business model in which a robotics vendor offers its hardware, software, and services for rent or lease rather than outright purchase. It is based on Software as a Service (SaaS) and is common in certain industries, such as construction and utilities. Robotics suppliers claim that RaaS lowers barriers to adoption by shifting risks and costs from capital expenditures, or CapEx, to operational expenditures, or OpEx. It can also provide recurring revenue for vendors. Service-level agreements may be managed by third parties such as integrators.
