Proactive Part Number Monitoring
A leading data storage company in the US sought to automate their part number auditing process using Robotic Process Automation to reduce manual effort and increase accuracy across the organization.
The client's part number creation process involved setting up attributes in multiple systems by multiple owners. Also, the products were available for sales even before the completion of the part numbers set up. This resulted in a cumbersome audit process performed manually.
