NEW YORK, July 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Guardforce AI Co., Limited (“Guardforce AI” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: GFAI, GFAIW), an integrated security provider specializing in secured logistics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robot-as-a-Service (RaaS), today announced that it has partnered with leading security provider, Concorde Security Pte Ltd (“Concorde”), to co-launch a new robotic security solution in Singapore.
Concorde is a leading Singapore-based security provider that specializes in providing innovative and cost-saving security solutions for office buildings, residences, schools, industrial logistic parks, and hotels.
Guardforce AI’s concierge robot will be equipped with an access control module for a visitor management system, a digital system companies employ to register and track each guest entering their facilities. Additionally, Guardforce AI’s disinfection robot will be retrofitted and equipped with Concorde’s state-of-the-art software security system that will provide automated patrol surveillance, while uploading the live security footage to the cloud platform for 24/7 security surveillance and retrieval. The overall solution is targeted to provide convenient and efficient automation for hotels and other industries. Concorde is also targeting to expand its current service offering with delivery robots for hospitals, residential buildings, and other markets.
Lei (Olivia) Wang, Chairwoman and Chief Executive Officer of Guardforce AI, stated, "We are excited to partner with Concorde to jointly market robotic solutions that implement the latest AI technology in the security industry. Singapore is a highly interconnected market with stringent security standards, providing the perfect environment to roll out the proof of concept for robotic security solutions. The prototype is in the testing phase now, and we’re targeting to launch it in the fourth quarter of 2023.”
Alan Chua, Executive Director of Concorde, commented, “We’re excited to work with Guardforce AI. Across the board, companies are investing more in security robotic solutions due to rising labor costs and inflation. According to Acumen Research and Consulting, the security robotics market is set for rapid expansion and is expected to reach $160.8 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 17.9%. By combining our security solutions with Guardforce AI’s robotic automation, we’re further enhancing our security offerings to our clients while helping address labor costs and shortages that are widespread within the security industry.”
