inVia Robotics Links With Channel Partners

Westlake Village-based warehouse robotics developer inVia Robotics says it has signed agreements with more than 10 companies who are providing technology solutions in warehouses, creating its own channel partner network. According to the company, the move will supplement its direct selling initiatives. New partners of the company include Argon Consulting, Atlantic Packaging, Conveyor Logistics, Innovation-Matrix, Midland Packaging, Pregis, Ryuu, STG Chile, and Storage Solutions Inc, among others. inVia develops robots which are used to pick items from shelves in warehouses, helping to automate the management of e-commerce warehouses; the company offers up those robots as a service, rather than as a purchase, offering up real time monitoring and repairs of those robots. The company's CEO and co-founder is Lior Elazary.
