A construction company eliminated time spent on manual material verification and invoice submission by deploying ElectroNeek RPA software to streamline efficiency.
Growing Demand Drives the Latin American Construction Market's Growth
The Latin American construction market is on track to grow at a CAGR of more than 5.4% over the forecast period from 2017-2027. The region's increasing demand for real estate and infrastructure drives the market's revenue to billions.
Digitization of the construction industry is essential to overcome decreasing labor productivity, enhance organization, leverage data, and project inefficiencies. Another top issue in the industry is keeping projects on schedule and budget, which results in lower margins.
Construction companies must use digital technologies to accurately capture and implement data into their manual workflows related to invoicing, purchasing, and other office functions.
It is not enough to just use digital technology; the current business state must be evaluated, and business processes must be analyzed and simplified first.
Manual Invoice Generation Drains Resources
A construction company struggled with a workflow that involved manual invoice creation and submission.
Employees had to manually search government websites to verify materials, organize the website information into spreadsheets, create invoices, and submit them to government websites.
The process of validating electrical equipment certification using the governmental website to complete documents could have been more efficient and prone to human error. The manual process not only caused delays in project delivery and increased costs but also had the potential to impact customer satisfaction negatively.
The process was also highly repetitive and consumed a significant amount of time.
The company spent approximately one day per week on this activity alone and recognized the need to optimize its workflow and reduce errors.
The construction company knew it had a workflow that drained resources and understood the benefits of automation. High per-bot licensing models from most vendors made transforming this process inaccessible.
