Osaro launches partner program for e-commerce robotics integrators and vendors

Osaro, a provider of AI-driven robotics for e-commerce, has launched a partner program that aims to streamline the deployment of robotic solutions for e-commerce and logistics businesses.

The Osaro Partners Alliance program provides a range of collaboration and co-marketing opportunities for vendors, integrators, distributors, resellers, third-party logistics companies (3PLs), and consultants, to deliver unified solutions.

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

The program’s inaugural members include three companies with a proven track record of delivering advanced robotic solutions for e-commerce environments:

  • Fanuc America – a maker of robots, CNC systems and factory automation systems
  • Pregis – a manufacturer of end-of-line packaging solutions
  • NPSG Global – a designer of e-fulfillment warehouse implementation services

The collaboration of these three partners and Osaro is emblematic of the benefits that can be achieved by working together. Osaro is currently deploying its OSARO Robotic Bagging Systems in a production environment at Zenni Optical’s e-commerce distribution operations in Novato, California.

Each system includes a Fanuc robot arm, a Pregis automated bagging system, and is installed with automation expertise from NPSG Global.

Derik Pridmore, CEO, says: “Osaro is solving the elusive challenge of automating the most complicated and labor-intensive task in the warehouse: the full automation of piece picking.

“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.”

Advances in Al-driven robotics have created new solutions to tackle supply-chain disruptions and labor shortages, and to equip e-commerce operations with solutions that accelerate delivery and boost productivity.

But tailoring the right solution requires a collaborative approach that includes software, hardware, and materials-handling experts with deep domain experience.

The Osaro Partners Alliance convenes the right set of players to deliver success to both customers and partners. It fosters a community where participants can share knowledge, resources, and expertise to support their mutual clients as they evolve their supply-chain capabilities to keep e-commerce humming.

Members of the Alliance can use Osaro’s industry-leading 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.
