OSARO Partners400x275OSARO, which develops AI-driven robotics for e-commerce operations, has announced a partner program that aims to streamline the deployment of robotics solutions for both logistics and e-commerce businesses. The new OSARO Partners Alliance will provide several collaboration and co-marketing opportunities for vendors, integrators, distributors, resellers, third-party logistics companies (3PLs) and consultants.

OSARO said the program is designed to optimize every stage of a customer’s purchasing and deployment process, whether it is through autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS), or other solution technologies.

The program launched with three inaugural members, each with a proven track record of delivering advanced robotic solutions for e-commerce environments, the company said:

  • FANUC America, which supplies robots, CNC systems and factory automation;
  • Pregis, a manufacturer of end-of-line packaging solutions;
  • NPSG Global, which designs e-fulfillment warehouse implementations;

OSARO said collaborating with these three partners showed the benefits that can be achieved by working together. The company is currently deploying its OSARO Robotic Bagging System in a production environment at Zenni Optical’s e-commerce distribution operations in Novato, Calif. (see photo, above). The system includes a FANUC robot arm, a Pregis automated bagging system, and is installed with automation expertise from NPSG Global.

“OSARO is solving the elusive challenge of automating the most complicated and labor-intensive task in the warehouse: the full automation of piece picking,” said Derik Pridmore, CEO of OSARO. “The OSARO Partners Alliance provides a framework for the integration of our pick-and-place technology with the latest product and service innovations from proven partners. Our model allows partners to grow their businesses with our software, systems, and tools, and to tailor the program for their objectives.”

The company said the Partners Alliance will help foster a community where participants can share knowledge, resources, and expertise to support mutual clients as they evolve their supply-chain capabilities to keep e-commerce moving. Members can use OSARO’s pick-and-place vision software to create new opportunities, build new revenue streams together, and expand the range of available solutions for fast-growing e-commerce and logistics businesses.

Partners can take advantage of applicable OSARO licenses for demo or production use, as well as receive sales, lead sourcing, customer referencing, logos, and other technical and marketing resources, among other benefits.
