The Use Of Robot Receptionists In Facilities Management

An artificially intelligent robot is able to take many different forms. Many receptionist tasks can now be done by robots, leaving employees to focus on other important activities. Robot receptionists are able to meet and greet in addition to supporting any facilities management team including its staff, visitors and couriers. Robot receptionists are able to handle a vast range of front of house tasks, including checking in for meetings, providing directions, placing drinks orders and autonomously messaging hosts, thus enabling the creative use of artificial intelligence in the workplace. The introduction of robot receptionists in the workplace allows human colleagues to better support the business operations and to focus on more tactical activity.

There is definitely a future for robots in the workplace and Companies who want to be forward thinking will need to understand what robot receptionists can offer for the future workplace and they will also need to develop a strategy to integrate both humans and robots in the workplace.

There is no doubt that over the next 10 years, we will continue to see a range of current job functions being fulfilled by robots in the workplace, along with other types of automated machines. There will be a significant increase in the use of robots, especially in the customer service industry which will become more automated in this timeframe resulting in providing opportunities for future workers to upskill and concentrate their efforts on the work that will produce the biggest benefits for business performance. The key to automation is the introduction of robots that reduce labour costs yet increase efficiency.

The use of robots and robots in warehouses is most certainly not a new idea, but creating a robot receptionist to be the front of house administrator shows where automation could lead to in the white collar office sector. If we entrust intelligent machines with guidance tasks, receptionists can focus on delivering quality service without any break in continuity. Furthermore, the beauty of robots is that they can perform a variety of tasks with acute efficiency.

Robots haven’t yet become too commonplace in working environments; the most advanced businesses are probably cleaning service providers that operate in the more industrial settings, primarily in highly standardised spatial configurations that present few obstacles to robot movement.

“Robot receptionists are needed to deliver real added value in terms of service and therefore any robot deployment has to be based on AI technology. Robot receptionists must focus on delivering a quality service without any break in continuity, taking advantage of automating tasks and autonomous behaviour”

Adam Kushner is the Founder of Robots Of London a Company who have delivered multiple Robot Receptionist solutions across the globe. Robots Of London work with many global brands including Sage, Intel, EY and many of the top FTSE 100 Companies

Robots For Live Events

Use of Robots in Events

Technology is constantly changing and evolving and the events industry is not excluded from this. A growing trend in events is robotification, the process of replacing human tasks with machines. Our interest in this upcoming trend is due to this innovative technology providing a unique competitive edge and experience at events. Here at Robots Of London we will explore how robots can be used in events and hopefully inspire you to discover how a robot could transform your next event.

What is a robot?

A robot is any form of a mechanical artificial agent controlled by a computer that can perform certain tasks automatically. These are usually programmed to perform specific mechanical functions in the manner of a human. Today we will focus on the use of humanoid robots; robots that share common features with humans such as heads, arms and a torso. These intelligent robots, popular ones including Pepper and Sanbot, can be programmed to work in a number of fields such as retail, education, healthcare, hospitality and security.

How can a robot be used at an event?

Firstly, it is no surprise that a robotic attendance at your event will drive great interest towards your event. People are highly interested in the growing fields of artificial intelligence and robotics and having a robot at your event is likely to drive large amounts of attention and footfall. This could be especially beneficial if your event or company are involved in technology as this is sure to assure clients and customers of your companies involvement in current innovation and technology.

These robots can be programmed to various specifications and therefore can provide a distinctively unique service to an event. Even at the simplest, these robots can be used to entertain clients through communication, with some robots being able to communicate autonomously with humans. They can hold conversations on thousands of different topics, communicating through speech, interactive animations and demonstrations. These robots are full of personality and are sure to get people talking about your event.

Whilst robots can be fun in this regard, it's important to realise these robots can actually have very practical uses at events. Robots can be used to to greet customers to draw initial attention and can do so as soon as eye-contact is made. For example, in 2016 Costa Cruises began using Pepper to greet and guide passengers. Upon greeting, these robots can also be used to check-in guests or to collect any data relevant to your event such as people's email addresses and phone numbers or can even conduct surveys for you and carry out raffles.

If your event is for marketing or retail purposes then a robot can be used to market your products or services. Robots can hold a database of all your goods and can describe these to customers through speech, images and videos. These robots can even take frequently asked questions about them providing high levels of customer service. This unique way of marketing products and services at events is likely to keep customers engaged.

If you really want to wow people at your events you can even get a robot programmed to make speeches and announcements throughout your event or to control and give a power-point presentation autonomously on stage. The limits to what these robots can do are almost endless and the best part is that it only takes one robot to take on  numerous human roles, making them great event hosts.

Whether it's greeting customers, collecting personal information, hosting raffles, selling products, streaming videos, making speeches or even just telling jokes, a robot is sure to be the star at any event.

Why Do I Need a Robot? – Advantages of Renting Robotics

You may think of robots as a far-fetched fantasised idealism of the future, however there are many reasons why robots are fast becoming essential for hire within events, entertainment and hospitality industries.

Are Robotic Animals the Future?

Are robots here to replace us?! Or could it be possible that one day, in the not so distant future, mechanised substitutes could replace the animal kingdom?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

If you tuned into the news recently you may have witnessed a strange, spherical machine perusing the red carpet. This wonderfully odd sight signalled the launch of the newest entry within the Star Wars trilogy, Episode VII: The Last Jedi.

Upcoming Humanoid Robots Of 2018

The technology industry is thriving and ever-growing. So as this year reaches its conclusive weeks, it’s time to look at what to expect in 2018…

The Modern Practical Use Of Robots

Are robots taking over the world?! - It’s a question which we often hear within the topic of artificial intelligence. But is this something which we should greet with fear or, like many electronic appliances, could robots become conventionalised as aids within the day to day running of our lives?

The Apprentice - Robots

It is with great interest that we await the arrival of the third episode of this series of the Apprentice. The mere fact that this episode is focusing on robots is testimony to the fact that robots are having a real impact on our every day lives.

I am sure that the first question that people will ask is...."what robot did they use for the apprentice?" The robot looks very similar to the Alpha 2 that is manufactured by Ubtech, a Chinese manufacturer of Robots. However, the colouring is different and it appears that the robot itself is called the Lynx which is very much aimed at the European consumer market.

So, the answer to the question that you are looking for is that the robot on the apprentice is called the LYNX. Whilst it looks lie the Alpha 2 it is actually the newest robot in their range.

It is a shame that the robot was most probably not shown in its best light. For example, we saw the robot fall over! Why did the robot fall over? Very simply, because the robot does not work best on carpet and requires a level flat surface. Walking robots of this size like the Nao robot require a level flat surface as they will not work well on carpet.

What the Apprentice failed to show is how robots are having an impact on our every day lives. Here at robots of london, we sell robots as receptionists, retail store assistants, sales assistants and a lot more.

We are proud of the fact that we installed the first ever robot receptionist in London and since then have supplied many more Companies with our software to enable them to have the perfect receptionist.
