Hire Robot Workers for your Packaging Process with Zero Capital In

Learn from Misa Ilkhechi, Co-Founder and VP of @Formic, as he discusses “Robotics-as-a-Service,” a service model that is lowering the barriers and risk of automation. As labor force challenges increase and robotic automation becomes more critical, this new delivery model allows factories to “hire” automation and pay as if it was manual labor, but at a lower wage rate and with zero turnover.

For zero capital investment, you can automate your case packing, case forming, palletizing, or pallet mobilization process. Also, some RaaS companies contractually include unlimited service and maintenance, which eliminates surprises and unpredictable costs of capital ownership.

For those who don’t have the capital, the time, or the thick skin for production risk, this a timely webinar is for you.
