Staffing is an ongoing concern across many industries. Cobotics, or the use of robotics in tandem with janitorial staff, is one way to address employee shortages. Cobotics are not intended to replace people, but to assist them and work together for a faster and more cost-efficient cleaning plan.
Hear from our own Doug Lerch about the future of cobotics and from Diana Kittlelson of Stoughton Area School District about her own experience with an autonomous floor scrubber in this informative lunch and learn!
