MOBILE ROBOTICS AND SAFETY: BUILDING A BETTER WORK ENVIRONMENT
Warehouse robotics are past the awareness stage. From horizontal transportation to storing and retrieving pallet loads at height, increasingly capable robotic solutions are becoming regular fixtures at warehousing and automation events, and in trade and business publications across the globe.
And with technology advancing to become increasingly capable and scalable, the signals for greater adoption of robotic solutions are clear. What better way to augment your labor pool, enable social distancing, boost productivity and improve retention than by automating repetitive, non-value-added tasks and focusing employees on more engaging, satisfying work?
Academic research shows that organizations augmented by automation technologies are 33% more likely to be “human friendly” workplaces, in which employees are 31% more productive.
