Pilot Projects

Making the move from a traditional warehouse to one automated with robots is a big step for any organization.  Getting buy-in across the organization means more than just demonstrating the economic value.  One needs to understand the issues with reconfiguring their space and their workforce.

At Bleum we understand this and are confident that if customers give the system a try, that the benefits are enormous and will be compelling to your entire team.

One good way to overcome the fear of change it to first install a pilot system to work out the issues and then once a small success is achieved, to grow the installation.  Bleum will work with qualified buyers to help make it easy to pilot our robotic system and determine if it is the right fit for your organization.

We are confident that once your team experiences the benefits and simplicity of our robotic system, that there will be no turning back.
