There were two meetings on my agenda for that all-important first day; one was a welcome meeting with my new boss, the other was with Orville who I was yet to meet.
Knowing that I’d just signed up to work for a company that specializes in empowering people to build their own bots and automation tools, I really should have expected that I’d be getting acquainted with bots very early in my experience.
With this in mind, you won’t be surprised when I tell you that after my initial meeting concluded, I was told that Orville would contact me at 10am via Workplace to take me through the onboarding process.
“Oh great” I replied, “Is Orville in the sales department too?”
It was then that I was informed that Orville wasn’t actually a person.
Orville was a bot! To this day, it still makes me smile.
