Rocla AGV Solutions is committed to providing each customer with an automation solution that will serve their business needs in the long term. Our automation experts go with the customer every step of the cycle, improving the customer’s logistical performance and retaining the value of their assets. This cycle can be broken down into six phases:
We delve into the customer’s business to get to know it thoroughly, finding out what it is that makes their operations tick and what their automation needs are. We conduct problem analyses and assess how automation could benefit their operations.
We design an automation solution, consisting of hardware, software and services, that can best serve the customer and their logistical needs. Here, our focus is on improvement planning: how our can solutions energize our customer’s business and streamline material flow.
Our automation experts go with the customer every step of the cycle
Logistics automation is a large investment, which is why we advise the customer on just what they need for their businesses. We are as keen to achieve an investment of the right size as the customer is. We draw on our decades of experience to give them all the information they need to make the appropriate investment decision.
When the investment has been made and the time comes for the AGV solution, both hardware and software, to be installed in the customer’s site, we are there every step of the way to ensure success. For example, before delivery there is a factory acceptance test, and when the solution is commissioned, we test and fine-tune load-handling positions. When your staff are trained in the solution, our engineers are on standby to make adjustments, if necessary, and ensure good working order.
Our proprietary FleetController software applies artificial intelligence to keep your automation solution running as efficiently as possible. It prevents bottlenecks, reduces vehicles’ idling time, and avoids traffic deadlock in your logistics environment. FleetController means the AGVs are situationally aware throughout their life cycle, eliminating damage and retaining the value of your business’s investment.
