The automation endgame of enhanced productivity, agility, employee and customer experience – this is understood.
The start point – the right processes and use cases, which technologies and vendors, the who, how, speed and scale, – this is often less clear. And for good reason. It’s a complex set of decisions.
We have a proven track record of engineering successful automation initiatives across multiple sectors, so we understand how to build effective programs from the ground up.
We help establish the program operationally, technically and culturally, finding the high-value opportunities and delivering quick wins to prove the business case for automation. Using our Converge automation lifecycle platform we hardwire best practice, assure code quality and deliver robust governance and ROI reporting.
By taking a holistic, pragmatic and tailored approach, we accelerate adoption and impact from day 1 and lay the foundations for successful scaling of programs.
The best time to start your automation may have been five years ago. But don’t worry, the second best time is now, and we can help.

Accelerating automation is key but it’s not simple.
Automation programs can stall as a result of process backlogs or lack of technical capability. In some instances, use cases do not identify additional technologies that are required. Sometimes everything is working well and organisations just need a partner who can help harness the benefits more rapidly.
Whatever situation you’re in, our automation engineers can pinpoint issues and employ measures to counteract them or identify opportunities and employ measures to seize them.
Backlogs are cleared through rapid assessment, capabilities are strengthened through our Academy, and governance is improved by establishing a clear automation operating model. Even when no obstacles exist, embedding expertise or deploying our Converge automation lifecycle platform means we can turbocharge your automation.

While automation adoption is inevitable, we know Automation success is not.
Many clients come to us after suffering false starts. These can be caused by lack of internal buy-in or infrastructure, stability issues, or simply starting with processes that are difficult to implement and hard to get the desired results from.
Whatever the reason, we can find a way to get your automations back on track and delivering a significant impact on enterprise performance.
We have set up over 50+ Automation Centers of Excellence and have developed the Roboyo Health Check Model to thoroughly assess failing programs at speed. This enables our automation engineers to identify technical and organizational pain points quickly and create solutions to course correct.
We can onboard failing automations into our Digital Workforce Support environment to ensure smooth operations. If desired, we can run your entire automation ecosystem with zero up front cost through our As-a-Service delivery model.
Whatever you need, whatever it takes, we have the expertise and experience to transform a false start into an automation program that drives next level results.

There are many obstacles on the path to automation scale.
In some cases, it’s a case of taking a successful program to scale. In other instances, more mature programs can lack the capacity or capability to go beyond the initial scope.
We apply an ‘engine for growth’ to remove any obstacles to scale. This includes Automation Lifecycle Management (ALM) which drives excellence, value and management, as well as Automation DevOps capabilities.
From an organizational perspective, we have a pragmatic and proven methodology to boost the automation pipeline. From a technological perspective, we have a clear tech radar for the most important emerging technologies and know how to connect them to your existing technology stack to realize valuable synergies.
Financially, we have funding models that provide instant ROI. Strategically, we can advise on governance so, as your programs scale and mature, business value is increased, tracked and reported.
