The concept of Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) is changing the game for the inspection industry. RaaS is a subscription-based model that makes robotic inspection technology an attractive proposition for many companies. Waygate Technologies leads the way in RaaS adoption, providing companies in oil and gas, chemical, and power generation with easier access to robotic inspection services that improve safety, quality, and efficiency.
Savings come in many forms, and RaaS can help drive those savings with these additional benefits:
Training: Traditional robotic inspection methods require businesses to invest in training programs for employees to operate and maintain the equipment. With RaaS, that expense is included in the program cost.
Support: RaaS providers offer various support services, such as maintenance and repair. This helps businesses get the most out of their robotics and ensures they are always ready to go.
Scalability: RaaS is a scalable solution that adapts easily to meet the changing needs of businesses. Organizations can add or reduce the number of robots as business needs change.
Obsolescence avoidance: The robotics company takes responsibility for updating and upgrading the equipment, ensuring that businesses have access to the latest technology without investing in costly upgrades.
Efficiency: Another benefit of RaaS is increased efficiency in the inspection process. With RaaS, planning cycles are shorter because the equipment and trained technicians are always on hand. In traditional inspection processes, scheduling resources can take weeks or even months.
Quality control: Robotics deliver confined space inspections that meet the highest quality standards. With a digital twin, robots can quickly assess trouble areas and help businesses avoid costly mistakes and unplanned repairs.
Robotics-as-a-Service is the new necessity for businesses looking to stay on the cutting-edge of confined space inspection without the hassle of maintenance fees. Talk to an expert and see how RaaS suits your individual needs.
RaaS, short for Robotics-as-a-Service, is a confined space robotic inspection subscription service from Waygate Technologies. It gives you access to robotic inspection equipment so you can perform high-quality visual and ultrasonic testing in vessels and confined spaces without the expense of purchasing equipment or the added stress and danger of human entry.
