[White paper] Succeed in your automation project in 7 winning steps

Automation is implemented at the corporate level to better support digital transformation. Discover in this white paper, co-authored with our partner Blue Prism, how to succeed in your automation project in just 7 steps.

What are the key steps to automation?

  1. Define a vision and a strategy from the beginning
  2. Adapt your organizational structure
  3. Identify and select potential processes that can be automated
  4. Adopt an industrial approach
  5. Control the continuity of virtual agent activities
  6. Recruit and train a team of experts
  7. Design a scalable technical architecture

These seven interconnected factors allow the automation program to meet the objectives you have set. However, it must evolve as your business does, meet new needs and, as such, be regularly re-evaluated.

You don’t have to recreate the entire program, but make sure that its parameters are always in line with your business reality.

SmartRoby: The future of process automation

A turnkey solution to make automation accessible to all organizations

Paris, April 13, 2021 – Novelis, a global consulting and technology company, announces the launch of SmartRoby, its Robot-as-a-Service platform designed to democratize access to business process automation solutions.

Because of the health crisis, organisations have accelerated their digitalisation and their deployment into the cloud. However, companies and public services in France are still slow at integrating business process automation and document digitization technologies. Too often, this is due to a lack of technological expertise, but sometimes this is also for costs reasons.

As a result, there is an existing need to provide companies with a simple and accessible solution for benefiting the functionality of document automation and digitization software robots. The ultimate goal is to improve productivity, customer experience and satisfaction of the employed.

“Digital players have a responsibility to ensure that technological innovations are accessible to all organizations, regardless of their size. This accessibility is measured both in terms of costs and implementation complexity. Since the beginning, Novelis has included this issue in its strategy and has developed platforms designed to democratize access to Smart Automation solutions and to improve business productivity. SmartRoby is the perfect representation of this”, explains Mehdi NAFE, CEO and co-founder of Novelis.

SmartRoby, a turnkey solution

By combining its various skills in IS architectures, RPA (Robotic Process Automation), OCR (Optical Character Recognition) and Artificial Intelligence, Novelis has designed SmartRoby, a platform which enables automation in a RaaS (robot as a service) modus with a simple invoicing system based on the actual consumption of the robots.

Concretely, SmartRoby provides a turnkey automation service in a matter of weeks. The solution is hosted in the Cloud, freeing organizations from infrastructure constraints and requiring no additional licences. Once the process has been set up in SmartRoby, the organization can easily manage it from a personalized portal, which offers various functionalities such as: process evaluation, ROI management dashboard, exception management, process management, alert management, analytics, user administration, etc.

“The business process automation and optimization approach is a real company project. It makes the information flow within an organization more reliable and fluid. This is a decisive asset, particularly in times of pandemic. We also see beneficial effects for operational teams, who are relieved of tedious and repetitive tasks. These tasks are often spread throughout the organisation and rarely focused on one single employee.” adds Mehdi NAFE.

From now on, companies of all sizes can access the services offered by SmartRoby by visiting smart-roby.com.

Speed-meeting RPA with Document Store

Participate in a 100% automation day during our speed-meeting on June 14th organized with our partner Document Store and discover if intelligent automation can be adapted to your projects!

During this day you will be able to identify and qualify processes with high automation potential thanks to SmartRoby’s* process assessment module.

How does it work?

  • Book a 30-minute session with a business analyst
  • Receive a survey to help you identify your processes with automation potential
  • Day D: the business analyst qualifies the processes that you have identified beforehand
  • Leave with your free study on the feasibility of automating your processes!

Process assessment is a critical step before launching an automation project and allows organizations to define an informed strategy for automating their processes. It allows them to clearly identify priorities by assessing the capability and maturity of their processes. In RPA, this step is crucial to determine the extent to which process automation will have an impact and be cost effective.

SmartRoby offers a very advanced functionality to assess the processes in place and the potential areas for improvement. SmartRoby’s Process Assessment module also identifies the strengths and weaknesses of existing processes in order to improve them or avoid bad practices.

Thanks to a detailed survey, SmartRoby allows to evaluate the feasibility of automating a process and especially its potential value in order to prioritize RPA projects and better manage investments. This comprehensive questionnaire takes into account the specific context of each process evaluation (feasibility of the RPA project, time consumption, exceptions, impacted business, IT environment…).

At the end of the survey, SmartRoby’s algorithms calculate the estimated impact, complexity, feasibility, ROI and payback point for the process being evaluated. With these results in hand, organizations are better equipped to make the best decisions and manage their RPA project opportunities.

Our solution offers the possibility to make a preliminary study of the automation project including all significant factors that contribute to the success or failure of the project.

With this informed diagnosis, organizations are able to evaluate their risks, optimize the management of their resources and seize the best opportunities.

*Our SmartRoby solution was awarded Blue Prism’s Best Solution 2022 in the AI & Cloud Innovation category. This award highlights SmartRoby as an innovative and pioneering solution for process automation (read more)
