Roboyo partnered with the world’s oldest and largest antenna manufacturer to re-engineer procurement processes. By automating and accelerating how supplier quotes were requested, aggregated and analyzed, our client’s team were able to make smarter and more profitable procurement decisions.
Our automation program delivered a year 1 ROI of 250%.
Our automations sped processes up by a factor of 16.
Roboyo created a digital worker that reduced processing times from 2 days a week to just 1 hour.
The organization was growing rapidly but wanted to harness automation to reduce the need to expand the workforce at the same rate as business growth.
Through its ‘Automation Champions’ Initiative it captured ideas from the business for the most valuable automation opportunities.
Procurement was identified as one such area due to the manual intervention required to request, aggregate and analyze supplier quotes.
Leveraging UiPath technology, the Roboyo team automated the requisition and tendering process.
For registered suppliers, a UiPath bot generated a report by scraping an internal portal and aggregating all quotations before passing it for human validation.
Our client was unable to have larger suppliers provide quotes via internal portals, so Roboyo developed a bot that could login to suppliers’ own portals and create a similar report.
A complex process was completely automated. The 3 employees that previously devoted all their time to quote management now only needed one meeting per week. By analyzing the automated results, they were able to make smarter and more profitable procurement decisions.
Because the process was now 16 times faster, our client strengthened their negotiating position. Added to this, price variances in automotive parts were identified far quicker through thresholds inbuilt within the UiPath bots, increasing ROI.
