In spite of the progress made at the mass market level in the last few decades selling flowers to consumers, the major chains have not been able to provide a “florist” quality product to consumers with comparable price points and quality. Adding the labor intensive aspect to the mass production of quality arrangements, the industry has not been able to keep up with demand on the major holidays each year. We have seen this ourselves as we visit major retailers (Costco, Krogers, Sam’s Club, Target, etc) each holiday to survey the product, price points and quality of arrangements being sold to consumers.
While there have been great strides made in semi automating the “bouquet” assembly process with very large, expensive and elaborate machines, there has been nothing on the market to address the needs of consumers who wish to spend a bit more on a higher quality floral arrangement.
We invented FloraBot with these factors in mind. The goal was to fully automate a high speed assembly line that can turn out AIFD quality floral arrangements at 100-200 units per hour, 24/7. After almost a year of research, R&D, testing, fabrication and more testing, and working with some of the largest robotic makers in the world, we are confident that we have achieved this goal.

What is Robotic Process Automation (RPA)?It is no longer a question of when robotic automation technology will be adopted in the global floral industry, it's a question of how?
RPA is really as simple—and powerful—as it sounds. Robotic Process Automation enables you to use modern robots to automate the design and assembly of floral products for the mass market. We configure and program your robot to perform the design tasks you assign and control to manufacture the products you need.
Think of them as your “Robot Workforce”. We show (and program) your robot what to do, then let them do the work 24/7. They can interact with any system or application the same way you do. Robots can learn, they can speak and respond like humans to commands. They can also be cloned. They work, adjust and scale as you see fit, especially on floral holidays.
The productivity improvements and return on investment are so fast (under six to twelve months in many cases) that many companies can not afford to ignore this new technology any longer.
Dramatically reduce operating costs with minimal error rates. No need to change any of your underlying business systems or applications.
Scale on demand and increase business agility. No need to change any part of the existing business processes.
Start, stop, and scale your robot workforce of FloraBot’s on demand. You choose how many FloraBot’s you need and deploy them the instant you need to scale up production.
Users can build and deploy FloraBot’s in a matter of weeks and see ROI in a matter of months.
