In the podcast, Gaby invites entrepreneurs to talk to their employees about their considerations of purchasing a robot or not. In this way, the entrepreneur will find out what added value that robot can bring to the company and its employees. This is the first step in the transformation process.
The next step is to take a good look at the value that can be destroyed by using robots. A robot can be of great help, but it can also cause us to lose essential skills. Elderly people for example, can become less activated unnecessarily when a robot takes over simple tasks like setting the alarm clock or organising the taking of medication.
The third step is to find a partner who is used to working with a robot and who can help you in this area. There are many companies that do not only deliver the robot itself, but also offer complete packages around the robot that entirely unburden you when it comes to updates, software development and (re)programming. You can easily find these companies by googling “robot services” or “robot supplier”.
The triangle between human, robot and customer, client, guest or patient, is essential when it comes to working with a robot. The hope for the future is that people can actually do what they are good at and even what they like to do. The robot can do things that are more automated or repetitive. Continuously optimising this triangle is the fourth step of the transformation process.
