Manhattan plan for faster robotics implementation

,

Manhattan Associates has launched a programme to speed the development and implementation of distribution centre automation and robotics.

The Manhattan Automation Network is launching with five inaugural members: Kindred AI, Locus Robotics, Matthews Automation Solutions, Right Hand Robotics and VCO Systems.

The aim is to cut the cost and complexity of adopting warehouse automation solutions. Manhattan said: “It provides pre-built integrated flows and a proactive certification process to ensure that Manhattan WMS customers gain the advantage of prebuilt integration as a strong starting point to their automation projects, leading to a significant reduction in overall project costs.”
