Nulogy, a provider of supply chain collaboration solutions, and Formic, a robotics company, have announced a strategic partnership to strengthen manufacturing supply chains through their respective SaaS (Software as a Service) and RaaS (Robotics as a Service) product offerings.
Together, Nulogy and Formic say they will empower customers to implement digital shop floor solutions with speed, agility, and flexibility – without requiring outsized capital investment.
As manufacturers and their supply chain partners continue to grapple with labor shortages, intense competition, and shifting customer demands, many businesses are turning to technology for a competitive advantage in cost, efficiency, and customer service.
“Manufacturing cannot survive without automation, whether it’s automated data flow or physical automation on the production floor,” says Misa Ilkhechi, Formic co-founder and VP of Sales. “At Formic, we’re focused on finding ways to make it ten times faster, easier, and cheaper to deploy a robot and increase productivity. We are excited to work with Nulogy, whose real-time data visibility and dynamic collaboration will add time to value for our customers.”
This partnership between Nulogy and Formic will present contract manufacturers, contract ogistics providers, contract packagers, and fast-moving consumer goods brands with a suite of automation capabilities—including shop floor data and workflow automation through Nulogy’s cloud-based platform and physical production floor automation through Formic’s array of accessible robotics solutions.
“Manufacturers and packagers in today’s consumer market can no longer afford to ignore the agility and competitive edge that data automation offers,” says Jason Tham, CEO and co-founder of Nulogy. “The shop floor efficiencies gained by Formic’s robotics technology combined with Nulogy’s collaborative platform present a powerful, scalable solution for companies to operate with greater efficiency, accuracy, and flexibility.”
