When Timber Barron employed a robot, it wasn’t a cost cutting exercise. Instead, it was an opportunity focused squarely on improving life for existing – human – employees. Timber Barron is an Auckland based global bulk building material exporting company providing New Zealand timber and building products into the Pacific Islands. Timber Barron has harnessed a digital worker robot, named Robert, as a staff retention and employee experience tool, removing manual, repetitive data entry and freeing staff up for more enjoyable, higher value work. Using Quanton’s Lean Agile Robotic Implementation (LARI®) methodology we were able to build and demonstrate the robot in less than five days.
