Robots have been around for a long time. The first robots to be used commercially in industry didn’t resemble humans of course. They were merely practical machines. General Motors were the first to dip their toe into the market. They bought and installed a robot called “Unimate” which was used for lifting hot metal from die casting machines – a job that was dangerous for human workers. That was back in 1954.
Since then, robot development has come on leaps and bounds, thanks for the most part to the evolution of the computer. Today there is a growing market for robot hire where humanoid robots are in great demand.
Why robot hire is the best option
It makes clear sense to hire a robot rather than purchasing one outright. Like everything in the world of science and computer technology, big leaps are continually being made. User interfaces and methods of control are constantly being updated. Why land yourself permanently with a robot whose capabilities will be out of date in the very near future? No, robot hire is clearly the way forward.
Choose your robot’s personality
The great thing about the humanoid robots available for hire today is that they are highly programmable. You can, for example, choose your robot’s personality from a wide range to suit the particular function you want the robot to perform. If it is a meet and greet robot, for instance, you can also hire it with appropriate pre-programmed voice clips.
Take customer engagement to the next level
The fact of the matter is that people are fascinated by humanoid robots. With the right model, displaying your corporate identity it can take customer experience to the next level, engaging with potential clients and wowing them with your company’s innovative approach.
The ideal employee
They are the perfect “employees” for specific functions. They will not tire or get bored; they won’t get angry or frustrated with clients, and they won’t forget the important details about your business they are programmed to recount.
Opening up new business opportunities
More and more people are waking up to the business opportunities that arise when they hire a robot. Take exhibitions, for example. With hundreds of competitors, all vying for customer attention, the company that has a robot on its stand will be the company that will stick in the visitor’s mind. It’s a great edge to have.
