Forbes: How Robots Help Businesses Save Time

Robots are the future.

We’ve all heard it before. While some people are fully ready to welcome the robots, others feel a slight panic creep in. Will artificial intelligence replace the need for humans? Will our jobs one day become obsolete? Take a deep breath and rest assured: Despite advances in technology, human brain power is still very much a necessity.

“AI doesn’t replace employees, it augments them,” says A.G. Lambert, SVP of product strategy at SAP Concur. Technology in the workplace is changing the way we work — but for the better.

Automation is already an integral part of daily life at home, from customer service chat bots to automated monthly payments. And now artificial intelligence has made its way into the workplace, helping us save time and reduce paperwork. For example, AI is making paper receipts and tedious manual data entry a thing of the past with automated travel and expense management tools.

We partnered with Forbes to examine the ways in which technology is changing business processes for the better.
