This technology company is digitally savvy and was keen on digitizing their mundane processes in order to bring in efficiency across their processes. This organization was seeking outside help to reduce shared services that had grown beyond the client’s strategy, as well as imbibe the culture of digital transformation through new age technology which helps in bringing process efficiency and at the same time help optimize the costs.
With in-house technical knowledge of their own, this technology company chose HGS as an RPA expert with a well-aligned skillset to deliver intelligent backoffice automation solutions. Only 2 years later, this unlimited partnership cites operational impact of 70 bots across approx. 25+processes automated for in some cases up to 50% cost savings and dramatic process improvements as outcomes that will continue to achieve significant return on client investment.
