Challenges

At the middle of each month, the operations management team at BDO Unicon Group (Europe) fulfills timesheets for over 150 client databases. Employees manually log in to the relevant database in the accounting system, set the relevant date and document number, save the newly created document into the relevant local folder, and email the stakeholders that the timesheet has been created. When done manually, this task takes over from 30 minutes to hours to complete, depending on the database.

 

ElectroNeek Digital Workforce in Action

ElectroNeek bots automate the timesheet creation process. The process of logging in to the relevant accounting system, setting up the date and document number, storing the timesheet, and timely notification of the employees now takes from 3 to 20 minutes ,depending on the scope of data in the specific database. Even for bots that execute such tasks, rapidly managing all 150+ databases takes 7 hours. Thus, for employees, such automation means saving an enormous amount of time.
