Richard Roberts, the National Industry 4.0 Operational Manager at ZI-ARGUS, says the partnership is an ideal union.

“We have quite a unique partnership,” he says. “We don’t really cross paths. We are a specialist software integrator and OMRON is a leading supplier of speciality hardware.

“It’s a partnership that works very well for both of us.”

Mr Roberts is confident the new agreement – along with our new Industry 4.0 opportunities – will help both organisations bring more solutions to the market.

Exploring new business opportunities

“Under the new agreement we will be working more closely with the teams exploring new innovations and new customer solutions to bring to the market and our customers.”

“For customers, they will have more support and services from both OMRON and ZI-ARGUS across the country.”

OMRON Oceania Managing Director Henry Zhou welcomed ZI-ARGUS to its fast-growing ASI program.

“This new agreement will greatly benefit both companies – and end-users,” Mr Zhou said.

“We are excited by this partnership and look forward to working closely with the ZI-ARGUS team.”
