The hospitality industry is experiencing tremendous growth and increased competition in today's fast-paced business environment. To remain competitive, hotels and other hospitality businesses are turning to Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to enhance their operations and boost efficiency. RPA involves using software robots to automate repetitive and mundane tasks, freeing employees to focus on more valuable tasks requiring human skills, such as critical thinking, creativity, and empathy. This video will delve into the benefits of RPA in the hospitality industry, its potential impact on staffing, and how to introduce RPA without negatively affecting staff morale and daily operations. We will also discuss the pros and cons of RPA and explore the technical solutions and procurement methods for RPA.
Stephen Burke (RobosizeME) joins host André Baljeu (techtalk.travel) to discuss how RPA is revolutionising the industry, highlighting the benefits and looking at some common misconceptions.
