Detroit, Michigan, December 15, 2022 — Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (the “Company”) (OTCPK:AITX), today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices Inc. (RAD), has provided an update on sales activities and expansion of its authorized dealer channel.
“Never in the history of RAD has our sales pipeline been as full as it is now,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD. “Calendar year 2022 is wrapping up with some amazing opportunities that we expect to close by the end of the first quarter of 2023.”
In a press release dated December 6, 2022, the Company noted that RAD has approximately 280 units deployed and approximately 250 units on backorder. In the same announcement, RAD forecasted, with high probability, that it will receive additional unit orders totaling 250 and 500 units over the next six months.
“RAD has received verbal commitments from 38 clients, representing immediate orders for over 200 devices,” said Mark Folmer, RAD President. “We expect to close these opportunities soon, although things could slip into January given the upcoming holidays.”
Furthermore, the Company is in the final sales stage with an additional 78 companies, representing orders estimated to include 450 units that have the likelihood to close within the first six months of FY 2023.
“I’m so pleased that we received the more than 600 ROSA shells recently. Some form of ROSA accounts for about 75% of our expected order intake. We should be able to build, ship and deploy relatively quickly,” Reinharz added.
The Company identified additional recent developments of significance.
- Two new authorized dealers have been signed since the last announcement bringing the total number of RAD dealers to 54.
- Actron Systems, headquartered in Lincoln Park, Michigan
- Guardian Protection Force Inc., based in Folsom, California
- The expansion of RAD’s software and hardware development team is underway, with the goal of adding 15 new members to the team.
“The RAD sales team is wrapping up the year in a very big way,” Folmer added. “Calendar 2022 was solid for RAD, and we’ll be ringing in 2023 in a great position, with a large backlog of orders, and full sales funnel.”
