Robots-as-a-Service Makes Automating Your Process Easy

Every US manufacturing facility continues to face labor challenges, increased costs, and growing demands on productivity. Yet, just 10% of these businesses currently leverage automation to overcome these issues and scale for the future. The large capital investment required and lack of internal automation expertise make automation too risky. These insurmountable blockers force the business to continue to try to “do it the way they’ve always done it”, leading to a never ending cycle of facing the same problems over and over again.

Here at Formic, our mission is to change that. Robots-as-a-Service eliminates the financial and operational barriers found in traditional automation projects, while driving improvements in productivity, quality, and safety on day one.

Robots-as-a-Service Requires No Capital Investment

Formic’s Robots-as-a-Service removes the need for a large capital investment to automate your production processes. Keep your capital free for other high impact projects or business initiatives, and pay for the automation of your facility in the same way you’d pay for any other business service - a simple monthly invoice for the hours worked. Formic is enabling every business to experience the impact of automation on their production process. Automation is no longer reserved for large companies with teams of robotic automation engineers - it’s available to everyone for $0 in upfront investment, with no added headache.

Also, because you have no capital at-risk, your downside of doing this is protected at all times.
