Detroit, Michigan, January 4, 2023 — Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (the “Company”) (OTCPK:AITX), today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices Inc. (RAD), has received 15 new contracts for 42 security robots.
The configuration of the 42 RAD devices placed on order is 25 ROSA stationary robots, 10 ROSA-P, switched-powered, pole-mounted solutions, 5 AVA access control devices, and 2 TOM autonomous visitor management solutions.
“This is the type of sales announcement we have been building towards,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD. “The mix of these 15 orders is a well-balanced combination of new or expansion business, and dealer channel versus direct to the end-user fulfillment. Our sales team has worked hard to earn every single one of these orders and we do not take them for granted. Now it’s up to our production and operations teams to build and deploy these 42 devices ASAP.”
The Company has identified the order type (dealer channel vs. direct, new vs. existing) of the 15 orders placed.
- Nearly one-third (31%) of the units ordered are for existing direct end-users, broadly expanding their deployments of RAD devices;
- Over 21% of the units ordered are through existing dealers expanding RAD device deployments at existing end-users;
- Nearly 20% of the units ordered are for new direct end-users;
- 14% of the units ordered are through existing dealers with new end-user business;
- 14% of the units ordered are through newly signed authorized dealers bringing RAD new end-users.
“As shown by the depth and breadth of these multiple orders, RAD’s sales pipeline is flowing with a wide variety of high-quality opportunities, new channel partners and new end-users,” said Mark Folmer, RAD President. “I applaud our business development team and dealers for helping RAD start the calendar year with a bang.”
