The Client’s key objectives included reducing the time to realise value from the automation initiative but with the necessity of allowing them to gain confidence in the accuracy and quality of the automation outputs. Initial business processes identified centred around Service Management where administrative overheads needed to be removed and operational efficiencies improved.
