Practical Examples

  • A department was struggling to determine the correct fees for their clients, as this process was very manual, labor-intensive and sensitive to errors. After determining what the process of fee calculations entailed, the engineer was able to find out what the golden source of the data was. The robot that was built was able to retrieve that data automatically, calculate the correct fee and send automatic invoices to the client, saving many hours and wrong statements.
  • Part of writing a credit application meant that a credit analyst had to fill out a great amount of information from different systems into the format of the credit template, which could take 2hours of preparation time. The automated solution fetched all the information from those systems, added them to the credit application and made it available for the analyst, all within 5 minutes.
