With the health crisis, organisations have accelerated their digitalisation and deployment in the cloud. However, business process automation and document digitisation technologies within companies and public services in France are still being adopted slowly, often due to a lack of expertise in these technologies but also for cost reasons.

As a result, there was a need to provide companies with a simple and accessible solution to access the functionality offered by document automation and digitisation software robots. The ultimate goal is to improve productivity, customer experience and employee satisfaction.

“Digital players have a responsibility to ensure that technological innovations are accessible to all organisations, regardless of their size. This accessibility is measured both in terms of cost and complexity of implementation. Novelis has included this issue in its strategy since its creation and has worked to develop platforms designed to democratise access to Smart Automation solutions to improve business productivity. Smart Roby is the perfect illustration of this”, explains Mehdi NAFE, CEO and co-founder of Novelis.

Smart Roby, a turnkey solution

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

In concrete terms, Smart Roby provides a turnkey automation service in a matter of weeks. The solution is hosted in the Cloud, allowing organisations to free themselves from infrastructure constraints and no additional licences are required. Once the process has been set up in Smart Roby, the organisation can easily manage it from a personalised portal offering numerous functionalities such as: process evaluation, ROI management dashboard, exception management, process management, alert management, analytics, user administration…

“The business process automation and optimisation approach is a real company project. It makes the flow of information in an organisation 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 concentrated on a single employee.” adds Mehdi NAFE.
