CIL provides strategic advice to robotics firm helping companies get back to work post-pandemic

CIL is pleased to have supported Tharsus with a strategic market mapping exercise for its social distancing product, Bump.

Bump is a wearable product designed to help businesses get back to work as stringent lockdown measures are lifted, while keeping employees protected by observing social distancing rules. It has been designed for use in workplaces such as building sites and warehouses and notifies the wearer – by issuing a sound or light alert – when they come within two metres of another person. Its central reporting and data analytics functionality also helps management teams identify locational pinch-points and employees training requirements.

Tharsus took the idea of Bump from initial conception in the first few weeks of the COVID-19 crisis, to production just eight weeks later. CIL is delighted to support the company and help get industry back to work by providing insight and analysis into the corporate landscape and mapping the scale of the market opportunity.

Jon Whiteman, Partner and Industrials lead, said, “With some form of social distancing expected to be in place for at least a year, products like Bump provide a crucial service in supporting business and helping the economy ramp back up again. CIL is proud to have advised such an innovative and agile company which is using its expertise to help industry navigate the current landscape”.

Tharsus CEO, Brian Palmer, said, “CIL has supported Tharsus many times over the years and once again they provided great clarity and insight to the challenges and opportunities presented to us. The timeframes were tight from inception to product launch, but CIL were quick to respond and delivered high quality analysis within days.”
