Universal Robots (UR), a Danish producer of collaborative robots (cobots), partnered with Denali Advanced Integration, a leading services and global technology integrator. Denali is joining UR’s Certified Solution Partner (CSP) program and is now the company’s largest CSP.
Denali plans to use its integration expertise and market reach to bring UR’s cobot technology to major businesses across the globe as part of its new Automation-As-A-Service portfolio. This portfolio was announced in April and aims to offer large companies end-to-end integration and service support.
“Automation is a natural step for companies aiming to improve productivity and overcome labor shortages,” Kim Povlsen, the President of UR, said. “Cobot automation in particular has never been more important and appealing to businesses because of its versatility and wide range of applications, supported at Universal Robots by an impressive ecosystem of partners. This exciting partnership with Denali is going to bring cutting-edge collaborative robotics to some of the world’s most important companies and will help large businesses successfully automate at scale.”
Denali’s automation systems are deployed to large companies across the manufacturing, transportation and logistics, health care and retail industries. The company recently collaborated with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give customers that decide to automate with cobots the option of combining robotics with machine learning using data and analytics to drive decision-making.
“This partnership combines industry-leading technology with industry-leading services. The combination of Denali, an experienced IT/OT partner, with Universal Robots, the leader in collaborative robots, allows us to bring the best automation designs to our customers while driving a strong return on their technology investments,” Justin Long, VP Global Automation at Denali, said. “This announcement, combined with our recent AWS collaboration and the introduction of our AaaS portfolio including software, hardware, services and support, provides everything companies need to quickly realize the benefits of this emerging technology and make it work for their business.”
