Robot designers helps SMEs thrive and cut costs

Robot3T Group of Ho Chi Minh City designs and builds cost-effective robotics and automation products and solutions to meet small and medium-sized enterprises’ emerging needs for smart manufacturing systems.

Truong Trong Toai, a graduate of the HCM City University of Technology, started Robot3T at the end of 2014 to turn the dream of a “Made in Vietnam robot” into reality. He said many SMEs want to use robotic technologies in manufacturing but find the prices of imported robots unaffordable.

An industrial robot made by Robot3T Group in HCM City. In recent years there has been a wave of tech start-ups in the city, especially in the use of technology platforms to modernise the traditional business landscape.

To resolve the problems faced by SMEs, the Robot3T team has focused on building specific robots with simple structures, high efficiency and low costs that are easy to operate for SMEs.

Expanding rapidly in both domestic and global markets, Robot3T is now serving over 500 customers from 60 countries and territories, with exports accounting for half its revenues, Toai said.

Nguyen Minh Vu, technology director of Live Group, one of Australia's leading payment service providers, last year hired Robot3T to test his company’s new point of sale integrated EFTPOS terminal. With the terminal inspection system needing to be fully automated and operating 24/7, manually testing a high number of terminals was not a possibility.

Using Robot3T’s expertise, Live Group utilised robots to test various aspects of the terminal’s functionality. Robot3T’s testing makes use of the latest Industry 4.0 manufacturing technologies incorporating data analysis, evaluation and cyber-physical systems.

Nguyen Thi Dieu Hang, deputy director of the Business Start-up Support Centre, said: “We have provided consulting and support for a few start-ups developing automation technology, especially robotics, to replace people in dangerous jobs and for sectors requiring a high degree of sophistication.

Vu Anh Tuan, director of the Quang Trung Software Business Incubator (QTSC Incubator), said understanding that digital transformation would change each industry, the HCM City start-up community has come up with digital transformation solutions that are appropriate for each segment – large, medium, small or micro -- which are expected to help businesses compete with foreign counterparts not only at home but also globally.

In addition to manufacturing sector, start-up companies have also developed innovative solutions to other sectors.

Winsoft Vietnam Co., Ltd in District 12’s Quang Trung Software City has developed Emedi Clinic (eMedical), general management software for general clinics, which helps patients reduce the time needed for medical examination and treatment, easily look up the history of the examination and support recurrent visits.

It also helps doctors eliminate almost all paperwork and clinics with managing the overall process, monitoring staff productivity, managing financial resources, minimising errors related to health insurance payouts, and better managing patients’ medical records.

The software is used by clinics in many cities and provinces like HCM City, Hanoi, Binh Duong, Kien Giang, Long An, An Giang, Dong Thap, Dong Nai, Lam Dong, Dak Nong, and Binh Phuoc.

Talking about future plans, Dong said: “Winsoft would this year complete its eMedi app and connect with teledoctors delivering health checks and treatment.”

Another startup in QTSC, Development Software JSC (Incomsoft), has researched and developed management and customer care solutions for SMEs, shops, kiosks, and organisations.
