Nearly every manufacturer has a five year plan for automation, but all too often those plans require such a significant investment of capital, time, and internal expertise to start that they get postponed, delayed, and then forgotten. Yet adopting automation is about more than offsetting labor shortages and optimizing existing processes. Successful automation can lower costs, increase efficiency, improve utilization, and ultimately help you win new business. So how can you get started without jumping into a massive capital project that may or may not meet your needs? Join Rapid Robotics Director of Customer Operations Steve Barsanti, and VP of Business Alliances Mandy Dwight to learn how manufacturers can take on automation as an incremental, bottom-up process that they can get started on right away.

In this webinar, you'll learn:

  • The best first steps to take on an automation journey, especially for contract manufacturers and high mix facilities
  • How to identify the best tasks to automate first
  • How to take advantage of recent innovations in robotics, AI, and computer vision to realize super fast returns on your automation investment
  • The positive business outcomes you can expect in both the near and long term after successful automation.
