Small Robot Company’s Challenge

As the company is growing rapidly, delivering Per Plant Farming to more farms every day, the need to quickly develop their robots through rigorous testing and prototyping is crucial, without increasing their overheads. They also needed a fast and more cost-efficient turnaround on parts to iterate on prototype designs more quickly and a partner who could seamlessly scale production to meet customer demand.

Reducing Part Sourcing From Months & Weeks to Weeks & Days

With Geomiq, the team realised they could simplify workflow tasks, such as supplier sourcing, quoting, and quality control to accelerate prototyping and testing times dramatically. Quickly, timelines went from 4-6 weeks without compromising quality…

“With Geomiq I get a quote back within 24 hours, and I've got full transparency over my supply chain from quote to receiving the parts".

Raymond King | Lead Mechanical Engineer | Small Robot Company

Staying Lean and Agile While Increasing Their Fleet

Since using the Geomiq platform, they have reduced the cost and prototyping time of the robots and mechanical components. These savings in infrastructure and overhead costs have accelerated development, helping increase the number of robots in their fleet more quickly.

“As we look to scale up as a company working with Genomic and having our parts correct the first time means that we're able to deliver our mission to allow farmers to be more sustainable as they move into the future”.

Raymond King | Lead Mechanical Engineer | Small Robot Company

With Geomiq’s help, Small Robot Company has been able to save much of the time and money spent on building and maintaining that infrastructure and finding reliable suppliers from which to source their parts, and instead focus their resources where it counts — developing their technology and getting it onto the farms and crops around the world.
