Impact

4 times faster 4 times faster

Roboyo created digital workers that processed data updates 4 times faster, handling over 2000 transactions on a weekly basis.

2000+ hours saved 2000+ hours saved

With the help of the automation, a huge amount of manual workload has been saved, totalling over 2000 hours per year.

Automation 100% Automation 100%

Through a 100% automation of the intransit update process, 100% data accuracy has also been achieved.

01

CHALLENGE

Prior to automation, the employees had to manually log in to each business unit’s instance in the Jesta ERP application, copy the intransit numbers from an Excel file and paste it into the intransit code field, then collect the ETA data from the Excel file and update the values in the intransit header and confirm the update submission. And then restart the same process all over again until all business units’ intransit dates have been updated, which represents about 2000 transactions that required manual updates weekly.

Due to the high volume and error-prone nature of this process, it was selected as the ideal candidate for the Robotic Process Automation (RPA) pilot.

02

SOLUTION

The idea was to have a set of bots that would be able to consistently retrieve the latest intransit data from an Excel file uploaded in a specific folder for multiple business units.

The bots will enter the updated intransit data into the Jesta ERP application, verify if the data already exists and if it’s entered correctly.

At the end of the process, it will leverage the input Excel file to prepare the execution report and clearly state the status of each intransit data for all business units as either successful or failed, and if failed, with a clear exception message to help the users take necessary corrective actions.

03

OUTCOME

The bot now processes approximately 2000 transactions weekly, in under 9 hours. Running as unattended in the background as per schedule.

By automating this crucial supply chain process, Roboyo helped our partner save 40 hours of manual work per week, totalling over 2000 hours of manual work per year, and is projected to cover any increase in volume based on future growth which would have likely resulted in additional employees tasked with the same manual process.

This automation helped one of the world’s leading sports brands optimize operation efficiency, reduce human errors, ensure 100% data accuracy, and most importantly free valuable human resources to focus on higher-value and strategic work.
