A new podcast is live — “Spotlight Series: Robotics with Tim Rowland, CEO of Badger Technologies, a Product Division of Jabil”
Anne and Chris sit down with Tim Rowland, CEO of Badger Technologies, a product division of Jabil, to discuss all things related to the future of in-store robotics on everything from monitoring floor spills to inventory stock positioning. Tim shares the early lessons from his company’s large scale implementation with Ahold Delhaize, gets real about all the noise out there on the topic, and shows why robots are likely the answer for completing the tasks retailers just don’t have the time or resources to do now, even if they want to!
Be careful out there.
