NextShift Robotics Announces Interface Connection to SVT Robotics Software Platform

Advanced robotic material handling integrates with full spectrum of warehouse management systems

Lowell Mass, October 3rd, 2019 – NextShift Robotics announced today a new interface connection with SVT Robotics, provider of a universal software platform that minimizes the labor and expense involved in integrating robotic solutions with business systems. For NextShift, SVT Robotics software creates universal connectivity to major warehouse management systems (WMS). It provides a pre-built integration bridge between businesses of all sizes and NextShift’s autonomous mobile robots (AMR).

SVT is known as the fastest, simplest way to connect any company to any robot. SVT technology cuts down barriers to adoption by easily linking NextShift’s advanced autonomous mobile robot workflow software with the existing WMS and other systems installed at distribution, manufacturing and fulfillment centers. SVT dramatically cuts implementation time, and hence time to value for the NextShift solution. NextShift software plugs into SVT’s platform, which has existing integrations with major WMS products and versions.

NextShift’s fundamentally unique solution to optimizing piece-picking workflows leverages the power of autonomous mobile robots to drive a 2-3X improvement in fulfillment throughput.  The NextShift system allows workers and robots to operate completely independently from each other in picking and fulfilling orders, thereby eliminating idle time and other inefficiencies found in existing ‘Follow-me, Lead-me, and Wait-for-me’ solutions.

“Traditionally, automation implementation is complicated, costly, and slow, and often limits companies to specific solutions,” said A.K. Schultz, CEO of SVT Robotics. “With SVT’s platform, companies can deploy new technology like NextShift in just a few months”

“SVT Robotics is the perfect partner for removing barriers to adoption,” said Mary Ellen Sparrow, CEO NextShift. “SVT creates faster time to value by making the robot-to-warehouse software connection entirely flexible, time-efficient, and budget friendly.”
