The challenge was to bring automation to this process. With the use of UiPath-powered RPA technology, we created a digital workforce to automate the verification of foreign invoices. Our key goals were to fully automate the process, reduce the workload of the Accounts Payable Department and to create a solution that is less sensitive to human error. We have created a robot that satisfies all goals by performing the following tasks:
- Read Excel files containing invoices
- Validate invoice contracts in the web application
- Update status to the database
- Report status update to the customer
After we deployed our robot, 8462 hours are saved annually! Employees experience a reduced workload now that this process has been fully automated. Additionally, due to the standardized way of working, we have achieved a 100% error reduction.
Our RPA robot offers a solution that is effective, efficient and reliable. Rather than manually checking invoices, employees are now able to spend time on more engaging tasks!
