Is a robot receptionist cost-effective?
A robot receptionist offers amazing flexibility in comparison to their human counterparts. Whereas humans require holidays, sick days, and coffee breaks, a robot receptionist can work around-the-clock 365 days a year. Moreover, employers save an extraordinary amount in national insurance and pension contributions. Although the initial investment may be comparable to a human salary, on average, artificially intelligent receptionists can save organisations up to 66% per year over a three-year period.
What does this mean for human labour?
Understandably, some employers – and indeed unions – are nervous about the impact on human jobs. However, automation need not be seen as a threat. Instead, both employees and management should see it as an incredible opportunity to help staff reach their full potential. For instance, many receptionists have multi-faceted roles. Beyond greeting visitors, many have administrative or accounting responsibilities. Automated receptionists take care of the more mundane aspects of the receptionist’s role, so talented team members can focus more attention on complex tasks.
Further to this, artificial intelligence has numerous benefits from an HR and upskilling perspective. In the presence of sophisticated technologies, employees need to learn how to maintain and manage this equipment. This gives them an amazing opportunity to diversify their skills in a way that’s relevant to the contemporary workplace
