H2: Build an ROI that Fits Your Budget

There are a lot of arguments that help build an ROI case to justify investment. When considering robotic AGV or AMRs, labor savings are not the only data point to consider. All of the following should be considered as well.

  • Human Resource Savings – If turnover is rampant, consider the cost of finding, hiring, and training new employees.

  • Product or Facility Damage – Robotic vehicles are incredibly safe that result in a no product damage, no racking collisions, no equipment damage and reduce accidents in the facility all at the same time.

  • Efficiency and Productivity – AGVs and AMRs offer a baseline work level that never stops. Most operations almost never operate at full employment, and a robotic fork truck can help fill in the gaps and allow you to operate with fully staffed teams.
