Manufacturers across North America are struggling with ongoing labor shortages, supply chain disruption and economic uncertainty. Leaders searching for a way to make their business more resistant to these forces are increasingly turning to robotic automation.
For manufacturers with the right expertise on staff, and the financial capacity to support significant upfront costs and the potential disruptions of robot downtime, purchasing hardware can seem like an attractive option. The vast majority of manufacturers are finding, however, that the traditional CapEx purchasing model costs too much, carries too much risk, and does not align with how their business operates.
In this white paper, you'll learn how Robotics as a Service offsets the costs and risks associated with robotic automation. RaaS makes robotics accessible to more manufacturers and practical for more operations than ever before. Discover the hidden costs of the CapEx model, and how to identify the right RaaS partner for your business.
