Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD) has announced that it has completed a Master Services Agreement (MSA) from a large regional bank and received an expansion order of six ROSA security robots.
A pilot program began during the summer of 2023 with one ROSA unit positioned to protect one of the client’s office’s parking lots, while a second ROSA secured an ATM vestibule at a selected bank branch.
The deployments were in different states to help demonstrate RAD’s capability for multi-state roll-out and support.
“This client expansion represents a significant achievement for RAD,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of RAD.
“It is gratifying to see a prominent banking group recognize the outstanding performance, security and cost-saving advantages that ROSA offers after the extensive testing they completed.
“We look forward to successful phase one roll out and further potential expansion throughout regional and national banks. The potential opportunity is incredibly exciting.”
Furthermore, the company noted that discussions continue regarding future expansion orders with an expectation that this year the roll out will be to 22 branches.
Mark Folmer, CPP, PSP, FSyI, President of RAD added, “Nice wins like this expansion order take the amount of time that they take, but it’s worth the wait and the effort.
“This order could help convince a few other banks in the RAD sales pipeline to share in the enthusiasm this client has for ROSA.”
ROSA’s artificial intelligence (AI)-driven security analytics include human, firearm, vehicle detection, license plate recognition, responsive digital signage and audio messaging and complete integration with RAD’s software suite notification and autonomous response library.
Two-way communication is optimized for cellular, including live video from ROSA’s high-resolution, full-color, always-on cameras.
