inVia Robotics, a 2021 RBR50 Robotics Innovation Award winner and provider of warehouse automation systems, added more than 10 companies to its channel partner program. The program is designed to supplement inVia’s direct selling initiatives through new channels, including international markets.
Companies currently participating in the program as certified partners include Argon Consulting, Atlantic Packaging, Conveyor Logistics, Innovation-Matrix, Midland Packaging, Pregis, Ryuu, STG Chile, and Storage Solutions. The inVia channel program also includes alliance agreements with a variety of companies that provide complementary offerings to the company’s Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) automation systems.
Pregis is one of the companies to join the channel partner program. As partners, inVia and Pregis will work together to integrate AI-driven software and autonomous mobile robots with automated poly bagging systems to extend automation across the fulfillment process, delivering greater operational efficiencies and faster cycle times. InVia services will be an integral component of Pregis’ entire line of packing solutions.
“As a part of the inVia channel program, we are able to integrate inVia’s market-leading automation technology with our integrated packaging systems to extend the value we bring to our customers’ operations,” said Tom Wetsch, chief innovation officer of Pregis. “inVia’s unique ability to automate retrieval of goods with a system that is flexible and can scale pairs perfectly with the breadth of our end-of-line product offerings.”
inVia also recently partnered with Rufus Labs. Rufus delivers wearable scanning technology that helps human warehouse workers to be more productive and accurate with order fulfillment tasks. Rufus Labs wearables leverage barcode scanning technology to close the loop on item picking and instruct workers about the next picking task.
“Our goal is to bring every efficiency we can into our customers’ warehouse operations in order to enable exponential growth for their business,” said Lior Elazary, chief executive officer and co-founder of inVia Robotics. “Strategic channel partners such as Pregis are critical in helping us integrate systems across the warehouse and ensure goods, people, and equipment are all flowing.”
