Bots execute automated tasks in:
The programmed robot expects the application to appear and analyzes its accuracy. After receiving it, the robot generates invoices based on applications. The robot also keeps a log of processing requests and bills for further analysis by the management team.
Quicker processing of inbound customer requests reduced equipment downtime and improved their customer service
More than 20 000 hours of sales managers' time per year is freed up across several business lines, increasing employee productivity and reducing overtimes
Achievements and future plans
The data management system in Epiroc was accelerated by several ElectroNeek bots that process the incoming applications faster and more accurately than humans can. The accurate invoice generation streamlines the customer relations processes and allows Epiroc’s employees to perform more efficiently at work.
Epiroc plans to deploy more bots in the near future to automate more routine, time-consuming tasks with data processing.
