How It Works

Setting up the in.view system is simple. In most cases, our customers can do it on their own, but we’re always ready to provide virtual or in-person support as needed. Following are some of the highlights of the setup process. Click here for more detail in our customer documentation.

No robot modifications

As a 100% cloud-based solution, Tend in.view doesn’t require you to download any software onto your robot or establish any network connections inside your IT firewall.

Secure connection

You’ll establish remote access to your robot data through a secure internet gateway we call the Sidekick. You can choose either a physical or virtual edge device depending on your preferences.

Unlimited connection options

Our system is completely customizable and can be configured to connect as many robots and users as you’d like. Adding and subtracting robots and users is a simple and secure process.

We received your message and will contact you back soon.
