Numina and Addverb partner to expand North American warehouse automation solutions

Automation solutions provider Addverb Technologies has agreed a strategic North American partner agreement with Numina Group, an independent warehouse automation software developer and systems integrator.

The agreement expands the deployment of Addverb’s cutting-edge mobile robots for automation solutions to North American warehouses and provides Numina Group’s customers access to additional innovative technology applications for faster and smarter warehouse order fulfillment automation.

Numina will start with Addverb’s Dynamo series of robots, which work collaboratively with human order pickers to increase efficiency.

Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are an attractive option for replacing or augmenting conventional conveyor-based systems because they are cost-effective and rival or surpass their efficiency.

AMRs can navigate multiple zones and pick points in the warehouse, transport products to a consolidated packing point, and increase safety measures by handling the heavy lifting – the robots can lift and transport up to 850 lbs in a single trip.

Sriram Sridhar, chief revenue officer of Addverb Technologies USA, says: “Addverb Technologies offer a variety of solutions to fit any customer’s needs including fixed and flexible automation solutions running on our end-to-end AI-powered software platform.

“Together, we create a powerful offering that provides the best service and solutions to clients in the Americas market that need to improve order fulfillment throughput infrastructure using scalable and modular platforms.

When AMRs like Addverb’s Dynamo Series are paired with software solutions like Numina’s Real-Time Distribution Software, which uses voice commands to direct warehouse workers wearing mobile wearable computers and wireless headsets, warehouses can double their productivity to achieve peak performance and accuracy.

Dan Hanrahan, Numina Group’s founder and CEO, says: “The latest generation of autonomous mobile robots is the right technology for many fulfillment operations to reduce labor and achieve a high accuracy pick and pack process and provide a quick ROI.

“Increasingly, Addverb’s expertise in robot-based hardware and software technologies will enable us to offer more customized solutions and choices for our customers.”
