2019 Winner Profile

Eaton

Project Description:
Eaton created a digital workforce to leverage emerging technologies including Robotics Process Automation (RPA) to augment its human employees, who were then set to other, higher-level tasks. Like at many companies, most of Eaton's business processes were largely repetitive, didn't require higher decision-making, were prone to errors, and didn't always run 24/7. As part of its digital transformation initiative, Automation Anywhere provided software robots on the office floor. In 2018, five major projects were successfully completed for HR, finance, tax, and supply chain that automated 17 processes. This resulted in the deployment of 10 bots in production. The 17 processes yielded annualized savings of 15,000 hours.
