Allied Universal Joins The Security Robot Race
Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD) will be providing the security robots to Allied Universal to augment existing security efforts.
Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD), a wholly-owned subsidiary of On the Move Systems (OTC PINK: OMVS), has entered into a strategic agreement to supply its intelligent robotic solutions through Allied Universal.
The robots will be leveraged to help Allied Universal customers supplement existing security professionals and improve safety, increase situational awareness and drive efficiency across the enterprise, according to a press release.
RAD’s S5 Security Robots will add significant benefits to the Allied Universal product and services portfolio by delivering a cost-effective solution to augment traditional guarding services, the announcement states. The S5 Security Robot serves as a force multiplier and removes security personnel from potentially dangerous situations, reducing injuries and liability.
The combination of human personnel with robotic technologies is said to create a strong value proposition that results in new levels of security and streamlined operations.
“The RAD portfolio augments the core competencies of our guard personnel because it offers fully autonomous patrolling that stakeholders can leverage to make rapid, informed decisions,” says Ty Richmond, president, integrated security solutions and technology, Allied Universal. “The data captured by the security robot will prove valuable in post-event investigations, enabling our customers to quickly address ongoing issues, close cases and identify trends. We are excited to explore the possibilities alongside RAD.”
RAD Founder and President Steve Reinharz says the market is primed to embrace the combination of human personnel and robotic guarding and suggests the trend will increase significantly in the coming year.
“We are thrilled with our already valuable partnership with Allied Universal and the size and quality of the sales funnel we’ve been able to create together,” Reinharz says.
RAD claims to have a sales pipeline of more than 50 Fortune 500 companies and more than 25 qualified dealers and distributors that have a combined customer base of more than 35,000 end-user corporations.
