Stan Prutz Brings Expertise in Control Systems Integration and Cobots to Notable Robotics Panel

Baton Rouge, LA (September 14, 2018)—QDS Systems, a collaborative robotic systems integrator with more than 25 years in process control and drive system integration, today announced that its President and CEO, Stan Prutz, will join robotics industry leaders to share his expertise with attendees of the RoboBusiness conference this September. Held in Santa Clara, CA, the conference gathers members of the robotics community including technology developers, executives, system integrators, engineers, manufacturers, and supply chain enterprises among many others to support the development, commercialization, and implementation of robotics.

Prutz will join the panel, Robotics as a service (RAAS): Buy or Rent? How to assess a viable pricing model to create revenue opportunities, which will be held on, Wednesday, September 26 at 4:15 p.m. PST. Joining him on the panel will be Mike Oitzman, Founder and Managing Editor of Mobile Robot Guide, Preben Hjørnet, CEO, Blue Workforce, and Dave Crawley, Founder of Ubiquity Robotics. The panel will focus on how RaaS is an opportunity for businesses of all sizes to lower the risks of adoption and to diversify into new markets. Panelists will discuss topics including evaluating revenue models, understanding new revenue streams, the pros and cons of renting, how to reduce upfront costs, and what expect when working with a system provider.

The conference comes on the heels of QDS Systems’ recent announcement about its new leasing and renting finance model for both its automated systems and collaborative robotics products. In partnership with the Lease Corporation of America, QDS Systems’ leasing model allows companies to rent or lease equipment from 12 to 60 months, depending on need, for as little as $500 per month with fixed monthly payments throughout the term of the lease.
