Tecsys (TSX: TCS) and SVT Robotics have partnered to develop an integrated connection between the Tecsys’ Elite smart supply chain platform and SVT’s Softbot platform for smoother automation.

Tecsys wants to give its customers native plug-and-play robotics integration capabilities both today and in the future as the market for warehouse management services (WMS) continues to evolve. The connection will provide Tecsys customers faster and easier deployment while avoiding the customization and code development problems common to multi-system automation and robotics deployments.

“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,” said A.K. Schultz, founder and CEO of SVT Robotics.

Tecsys wants to provide an all-in-one automation platform

It’s Tecsys contention that bringing automation into a warehouse requires a needs assessment and design plan. The plan provides a roadmap that helps clients determine what selections are needed. The company’s partnership with SVT helps supply chain-based organizations assess, design and integrate with the automation choice that works best. The end result is an optimized warehouse operation with end-to-end WMS functionality and automated workflows.

SVT Robotics is a software company that’s involved in providing robotics deployments in the warehousing and manufacturing sectors. SVT’s SOFTBOT platform gives companies the ability to consolidate controls for robots, automation and internet-of-things devices in one platform. It has prior partnerships with companies like River Systems, Fetch Robotics (Zebra Technologies), Locus Robotics, MiR, OMRON, and OTTO Motors.

In contrast, Tecsys is a provider of cloud-based supply chain software in service to the healthcare, distribution and commerce industries. It delivers options for warehouse management, distribution and transportation management. Also, it provides supply management at point of use, order management and fulfillment, as well as financial management and analytics solutions.
