Independent robotization consulting firm for industrial companies Gain & Co announces the opening for the Canadian market of the digital platform HowToRobot, the first price comparison service for industrial robots and related services and products.
“For the first time, companies around the world can receive quotes and compare prices for products and services related to industrial robots. The new service offered by HowToRobot.com will make it easier and cheaper for companies to have a robot, ”said CEO Søren Peters.
In order to make it cheaper and easier for companies to adopt and use robotics, HowToRobot offers a service, in English for the moment, dedicated to companies with robots to enable them to obtain offers on everything from components to maintenance, programming and even training. With several offers at their disposal, companies can finally compare prices in an easy way.
Global mutual aid and transparency
The system allows customers to easily send inquiries to more than 15,000 suppliers of robot-related products and services, including 85 Canadian companies. Like similar digital platforms in other industries, HowToRobot.com addresses a growing need to connect buyers and sellers in one online space.
Many companies, for example, have to renegotiate service contracts for their robots after a certain period. By obtaining comparable offers from several suppliers, they ensure that they benefit from the best offer available on the market. The ambition of HowToRobot.com is therefore to change a sector that lacks transparency.
“Without several comparable offers on the table, customers may not know where to get the best deal and price,” Peters said, based on the results of a company study indicating that four companies in five do not receive offers from more than one supplier when they need something for their robot.
Ease of use
Through their website, companies can now send a request to suppliers for free in minutes. The suppliers then send offers including price proposals to the buyer and the transaction is finalized through the platform.
Quote requests on the platform are free and buyers can choose to remain anonymous. The offers concern, for example:
- New robots, components, grippers, vision systems and spare parts
- Repair and maintenance services
- Services aimed at modifying, reprogramming or optimizing the operation of current robots
- Training and reinforcement of employee skills for handling robots
- Expert help and related advisory services
Founded in 2017 alone, Gail & Co quickly offered consulting services to over 200 companies regarding their automation. The company is now deserting the European, American and Asian markets. The HowToRobot platform was launched in March 2020.
