SVT Robotics, which provides enterprise software for industrial robotics, has announced a new Softbot Platform Connector for Tecsys Inc., a supply chain management software company.
SVT and Tecsys collaborated on the development and launch of the pre-built connector between the Tecsys WMS and SVT’s Softbot Platform.
The robotics technology firm explained that the flexibility of tech-agnostic integration with the platform means organisations can deploy solutions quickly or reconfigure them on the fly.
What’s more, it says that Softbots connected to leading automation technologies mean organisations can integrate and deploy any automation, robot, IoT, or productivity tool by simply selecting the desired technology.
According to SVT Robotics, the integration will provide Tecsys Elite customers with faster deployment times and lower complexity. It also eliminates the need for custom code development, which is often involved in multi-system automation and robotics deployments.
“A SoftBot connector is one of the basic building blocks of the SoftBot Platform, like a Rosetta Stone for data information between systems,” said Nick Leonard, SVP of Product at SVT Robotics.
“With this connector to the Tecsys WMS, we can normalise data from their standard API to create interoperability between Tecsys and other solutions from leading providers. This allows Tecsys customers to rapidly deploy the specific automation they need today with little to no customisation.”
“This is a gamechanger for our customers,” said Bill Denbigh, vice president of product marketing at Tecsys.
“With a growing and evolving automation market, orchestrating warehouse automation across multiple automation vendors has the potential to quickly become unsupportable. Our collaboration with SVT allows Tecsys to offer a hardware-agnostic warehouse automation solution perfectly tailored to each use case.
“It liberates them to choose automation that best addresses their warehouse challenges, rather than limiting them to a specific WMS provider’s preferred automation partner.”
