Double Robotics says it has sold 8,000 robots and generated $20 million in sales since 2013
Double Robotics says there's a big audience for its telepresence robots and thinks it has the numbers to prove it. In the past four years, the company said, more than 8,000 of its robots were sold worldwide, generating more than $20 million in sales revenue. With this traction, Double Robotics has plans to raise a series A round of funding this year along with introducing a software subscription plan to help customers get more out of their robots.
"We've learned a lot over the last few years to see what it takes to work in office cultures," remarked company CEO David Cann in an interview with VentureBeat. "When we started, we didn't know what to expect. We had a crazy concept of putting robots in the office, and no one had done it to the scale that we've had."
Double Robotics is the developer of a telepresence robot that allows users to remotely navigate around the office and engage with colleagues instead of being stationary at a desk or requiring the use of Skype, Google Hangouts, or other web conferencing software. Its main interface is the iPad positioned at its head, so think of this as a very mobile version of FaceTime.
