Cevitr, a UK based company, announced a partnership with J. Murphy & Sons Limited (Murphy), a leading global, specialist engineering and construction company that operates in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Canada to digitally empower their Shared Services Team by automating key processes for faster and accurate processing of repetitive tasks. Cevitr enables businesses to adopt a subscription-based Digital Workforce using Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology.
To gain operational efficiency in today’s highly competitive landscape, Murphy has deployed Cevitr’s innovative RPA powered Digital Workforce solution, which is powered by UiPath to accelerate a number of processes within their business. By expanding the coverage to other business functions and across group entities, Murphy intends to fully harness the power of a digital workforce in building a workplace of the future.
A digital transformation partnership began after Cevitr deployed a digital workforce to assist Murphy in the data migration process, as a technology demonstrator for the engagement. Migrating from a legacy system, AX based ERP, to the new Dynamics 365 system required Murphy to undertake critical activities that would allow data to be ported to the new system, within a time-bound cut-over window. Cevitr trained and deployed its digital workforce to undertake this task and increased this capacity to cater for lost hours by working round the clock and over the weekend, resulting in Murphy being able to go live on the new system as planned, whilst generating significant cost and time savings.
Jo, Cevitr’s Digital Workmate, is now working round the clock to execute processes for Murphy within their Shared Services Centre, with the accounts payable value chain being the first business process to be automated. This has not only delivered significant time savings, increased accuracy of processing and cost savings but has also shifted the emphasis of the Shared Services team to focus on more value-added initiatives that foster closer relationships with all stakeholders. Additionally, the intangible benefit of greater employee satisfaction through the reduction of repetitive and boring tasks, thereby letting employees focus on more challenging tasks, is also being realized. Using Cevitr’s digital workforce enables Murphy to create an elastic capacity within their Shared Services organization; allowing the business a smoother vehicle to ride the peaks and troughs.
