As the “as a service” business model has grown over the years, it has evolved to include robotics. Robotics as a Service (RaaS) allows you to take advantage of cloud-based robots and artificial intelligence technologies while leasing them instead of buying them outright. Here’s why investing in RaaS is worthwhile for your business.
How Does Robotics as a Service Work?
With RaaS, you rent or lease robots and AI technology from a service provider, such as ITque. Some robots and AI are cloud based, while others are not, and you can leverage both for your business. You can lease robots and AI for different tasks throughout your commercial facility. When you lease them, your service provider offers as many robots as your facility needs, and they can scale their robotics service offerings up or down as needed.
For example, at ITque, we use our RaaS offerings to provide autonomous, UV-C disinfecting robots to schools and universities. These robots fight infectious diseases by killing airborne bacteria and viruses from surfaces. They break down the bacteria and viruses’ DNA structure to destroy them in minutes, and they provide 360-degree surface coverage. When you use our Robotics as a Service offerings to put these robots in your building, you simply pay a monthly fee. We take care of all the robots’ maintenance, updates, and upgrades.
When you use RaaS, you pay a monthly fee to your service provider that takes care of the robots and AI. You don’t have to perform any maintenance, and you can trust that your provider will always offer robots updated with the latest technology.
What Other Tasks Do RaaS Robots Perform?
RaaS robots perform many more tasks than just facility disinfection. You can also use RaaS robots and AI to perform building security and warehouse operations, among other tasks. Why use robots for these tasks? Security robots can save up to 65% in costs when they patrol buildings in place of human guards. They also collect data that you can use to improve your security system’s performance. You can also use robots to perform warehouse operations tasks. These robots can make up for seasonal labor shortages without requiring you to invest in an in-house robotics system. Ultimately, RaaS robots can fill in wherever you need them in your facility. They go on to save you maintenance and labor costs in the long run.
Are There Different Types of RaaS Models?
Yes, there are two main types of RaaS business models. One is called Robotics as a Cloud Service, and it uses cloud-based robots to collect data. This service provides that data to businesses that use it to improve their processes and operations. The other service model is called robots on rental, and it focuses on staffing facilities with robots to perform operational tasks. Our disinfecting robots program for schools and universities falls under this service model category. If you want to improve your business with RaaS, ITque can help you determine which of these business models best fits your needs.
