RPA companies are helping in rapidly transforming organisations of every size across different industries. Every manufacturing company today is laser focused in reducing the Time to Market so that their products can take the competitive advantage of being quickly available to customers. The manufacturing processes have to be error-free and agile to scale up to production demands. With the advent of Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0), RPA tools powered with Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Computing are at the fore front of taking manufacturing to the next level of efficiency.

Robotic Process Automation in Manufacturing industry requires doing away with any manual activities which can delay the production and assembly lines. RPA enables manufacturing companies to get products to consumers faster by automating lengthy approval process, offering real-time insight into business performances, and help to scale quickly by bridging legacy systems with new technology.

Streamline BOM

Bill of Materials (BOM) is an important document for production, which has wide list of raw materials, components, sub-components that are needed for manufacturing the end product. RPA helps to streamline BOM to be error-free and more agile with real time access to stock quantities and alert any consignment delays.

Inventory Management

Maintaining accurate Inventory so as to reduce wastage has been a hard task for Manufacturing workforce. RPA brings in real-time access to different systems to check the inventory status against the production demands and helps to automate precise procurement.

Inventory Management

Logistics Monitoring

Logistics Monitoring

Monitoring the freight and carriers entering and leaving the warehouses is a nightmare and often leads to delayed shipment of the product to customer. With Robotic Process Automation in place, different logistics and supply chain systems can be integrated and the Bots can be configured to frequently check the shipment status and update customer of ETAs, identify and report any delay in delivery, build an intelligent system to calculate different carrier shipment charges and map the ideal carrier for a shipment.

Automated Customer Service

Serving customer enquiries around the clock is a challenge to any organisation. RPA coupled with a chatbot can effectively process more customer support tickets with the ability to collect information from different systems, automatically send notifications to changing shipment status, inform ETAs to customers and record metrics for management reporting. Moreover the bots are available at all times to cater to customers.

Automated Customer Service

Reduce Operational Costs

Robotic Process Automation solutions have proved to reduce the costs in many ares of the Manufacturing and Operations. As most of the repetitive, rule based activities can be much efficiently handled by the Bots, need for human labor can be reduced and thus increasing cost savings.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) initiatives in Manufacturing have empowered organisations with improved agility across the value chain, reduce Operational costs, streamline production and assembly lines, help avoid Inventory wastage, increase customer satisfaction and opens a door of much more advantages to reap.

RPA Companies with expertise in understanding the Manufacturing processes and identifying the automation solutions using the best RPA tools are becoming the most sought after by top manufacturing organisations worldwide.
