SVT Robotics and Locus Robotics are partnering to develop and launch an out-of-box integration between the companies’ respective solutions.

Locus Robotics is a leading provider of warehouse automation solutions with a growing portfolio of autonomous mobile robots that help move inventory through the warehouse.

SVT Robotics is an enterprise software company that’s revolutionizing robot deployments in the warehousing and manufacturing industries. SVT’s SOFTBOT Platform enables companies to integrate any robot, automation, IoT device, or human productivity tool for any task in just days or weeks.

The pre-built integration connection between SVT’s SOFTBOT Platform and Locus will shorten integration time and complexity.

“Locus customers can now rapidly integrate and deploy Locus Robotics solutions without lengthy custom code development,” said A.K. Schultz, CEO of SVT Robotics. “The connectivity from the SOFTBOT Platform to LocusBots technology enables warehouses to fully integrate Locus AMRs in just a matter of days to begin optimizing their productivity and efficiency much more quickly.”

“Fast and seamless WMS integration is a key element in Locus’s ability to deploy quickly and flexibly in both existing and greenfield warehouses,” said Rick Faulk , CEO of Locus Robotics. “SVT’s expertise in integrating the Locus solution with all WMS platforms will help us deliver even faster ROI for our customers and drive the digital transformation of today’s fulfillment warehouse.”

“Kenco’s collaboration with SVT and Locus Robotics has made deploying autonomous mobile robots seamless, significantly easier, and faster,” said Kristi Montgomery , Vice President, Innovation, Research & Development, Kenco.  “As we add robotics to additional sites, being able to be up and running in weeks vs. months is a critical growth factor to enable delivery of high productivity for all of our customers.”

Locus Robotics fulfillment solution enables brands, retailers, and third-party logistics (3PL) operators to easily meet steadily increasing consumer demand for e-commerce, retail, omnichannel, and manufacturing order fulfillment. LocusBots work collaboratively with workers, doubling or tripling productivity of both outbound (picking) fulfillment and inbound (putaway/replenishment while lowering labor recruitment, training, and retention costs).
