Without knowing the full extent of what Brexit will mean to individual businesses at this stage, for those organisations operating within the EU they cannot wait to find out before they start to put new processes in place.
For example, you may have seen the electronic messages on the Motorway Gantry’s ‘Freight to EU Papers may change 1 Nov please check’.
Freight Forwarders and Logistics businesses will likely require Customs Clearance documentation to be completed when entering and leaving the EU. This could impact massively on the administration time which in turn will cause issues with payment schedules, the ability to remain competitive in the marketplace and delivery timescales
Businesses operating in this sector are already making changes to their procedures and are requesting relevant customs documentation to be completed in advance.
RPA can be utilised to help with this process:
Reviewing in-bound emails to identify relevant key words and attachments
Opening attachments and scanning for key pieces of information
Incomplete forms could be returned to the sender requesting additional information
This alone will save businesses a huge amount of time and the need to employ additional staff to handle this new manually intensive work.
This is just one example of how RPA can assist businesses.
