Improved Employee Experience with Robots
Of course, any time businesses discuss the use of robots, there is always the question of how they will be received and used by the team. Typically, the phrase ‘robotic automation’ can evoke feelings of anxiety within a facility. During the pilot program, however, employees responded positively to the integration of the LocusBot units, stating that the robots provided a sense of empowerment and allowed them to do their jobs more effectively.
The LocusBots also possess the unique ability to recognize an employee’s identifier via their badge. They can then display text in the employee’s native language. The LocusBots ‘speak’ multiple languages, including English, Burmese, Spanish, and Chin—a Southeast Asian language spoken in Burma, India and Bangladesh. In addition to improving communication, the LocusBots reduce training time by 40 percent, allowing employees to onboard faster and feel like contributors to the team sooner.
