Cloud ERP SAP Business ByDesign supports innovation & growth
Robots are still considered expensive and complicated to handle. With its intelligent robot assistance system PANDA, the Munich start-up FRANKA EMIKA proves the opposite. The cloud ERP solution SAP Business ByDesign supports the robot specialist in driving innovative processes and growth. The results speak for themselves:
- Integrated process platform: successfully managing 400% company growth
- Economically appropriate: The solution is very cost-efficient thanks to the rental model
- Automated processes – the company remains agile
- A balancing act between growth and agility mastered
Technology and people – together into the future with SAP Business ByDesign
PANDA is the name of the first sensitive and adaptive robot arm in lightweight construction from FRANKA EMIKA. The intelligent assistant can learn motor skills autonomously and has a distinct intuition. It can therefore also be used for tasks that require a high degree of precision and fine motor skills – such as sensitive plugging and screwing as well as tasks in the areas of testing, inspection, and assembly. The motto:
We want to make robots affordable and accessible for everyone,
explains Dr. Simon Haddadin, CEO and co-founder of FRANKA EMIKA.
