SoftBank Robotics Corp. (“SoftBank Robotics”) today announced that on February 22, 2016, it will open ‘RobotApp Market for Biz’, an app store for ‘Pepper for Biz’, the enterprise model of the humanoid robot Pepper.

With RobotApp Market for Biz, purchasers of Pepper for Biz will be able to choose and install robot apps that suit their companies' usage needs. All robot apps registered on the store are developed and accredited by RobotApp Partners and inspected for approval by SoftBank Robotics so customers can use them with peace of mind. By purchasing a usage license in the store for the RobotApp they want to use, customers can have RobotApps downloaded to Pepper automatically.

Furthermore, starting February 1, SoftBank Robotics will begin opening ‘Pepper for Biz Atelier’ locations, where business customers can engage in consultations to introduce Pepper. Currently over 500 companies in Japan have implemented Pepper for Biz, and with the opening of these four Pepper for Biz Atelier locations nationwide (in Tokyo, Osaka, Aichi and Fukuoka), SoftBank Robotics will aim to introduce Pepper to even more enterprises. After making a prior appointment at a Pepper for Biz Atelier, customers can try various Pepper for Biz services during a consultation.
