Supply chain software firm's Elite platform to add plug-and-play automation connectivity into core product, enabling seamless warehouse automation and rapid robotics integration.
MONTREAL — Tecsys Inc. and SVT Robotics Inc., have partnered to develop and launch an integrated connection between the Tecsys’ Elite supply chain platform and SVT’s SOFTBOT Platform. The integration will install Tecsys Elite products faster and lower complexity without the need for custom code development.
“Automation is becoming more important to power supply chains of the future, so it’s critical those technologies are connected to a solid WMS with core warehouse management functionality,” said A.K. Schultz, founder and CEO, SVT Robotics. “The pre-built integration that Tecsys and SVT are developing connects to top-tier automation from leading providers, enabling Tecsys customers to customize and then rapidly deploy the specific automation they need today.”
Tecsys contends that bringing automation into a warehouse should begin with a needs assessment and design plan, which then informs hardware selection that will meet those needs. Whereas some software vendors operate as automation resellers for a limited set of systems, Tecsys’ partnership with SVT supports supply chain organizations to assess, design and integrate across a wide spectrum of automation choices.
“A company’s automation strategy and equipment should be tailored to their specific use case, never throttled by the software, and that is exactly what this SVT partnership makes possible through rapid integration,” said Peter Brereton, president and CEO, Tecsys. “We want to give Tecsys customers native plug-and-play robotics integration capabilities today and into the future as this warehouse automation market evolves so that they will be ready to deploy the technologies they need to remain competitive. SVT’s SOFTBOT Platform will enable flexibility and freedom in a quickly developing industry.”
