White paper: Three ways logistics providers are automating costly manual processes
Competition in the logistics sector is fierce, driving prices down and squeezing already razor-thin margins. Logistics providers are being forced to offer better service to win new customers and retain their top accounts.
Outdated systems and manual processes create further challenges, slowing your operations and hindering your ability to grow revenue. According to an Edge Research study, half of surveyed companies still use manual processes for monitoring changes, exceptions and disruptions to their supply chain and plan activity.
Fortunately, there is an emerging, cost-effective technology, robotic process automation (RPA), that can automate repetitive, manual tasks and free up your workers for more valuable, strategic work. The work your employees do in manually moving information between applications, clicking between windows or swivelling their chair to work between machines or monitors can now be automatically done behind the scenes by intelligent software robots. This white paper will explore the use of RPA to improve operations.
