SVT Robotics, a software provider for the rapid integration of industrial robotics, and Kardex Solutions, a global business partner of AutoStore and intralogistics solution provider of automated storage, retrieval, and material handling systems, have formed a strategic partnership.

The partnership now enables Kardex Solutions customers to easily deploy and integrate AutoStore systems with additional automation technology by leveraging the power of the SVT Robotics SoftBot Platform.

Building upon its Kardex Control Center WES technology, Kardex Solutions has connected its software to the SoftBot Platform to enable a complete end-to-end pick and pack solution.

“We’re excited to partner with Kardex Solutions to offer their customers a simple and effective method for rapid automation adoption.”

Mitch Hayes, president of Kardex Solutions, says: “By coupling Kardex Control Center with the SoftBot Platform, we’re able to provide our customers with a true ‘easy button’ approach to automation.
