Hubtek, a workforce optimization provider for the transportation industry, announced TABi, its Task Automation Bot for logistics operations that automate costly transportation management workflow processes.
“Look at TABi as the virtual assistant that handles tasks faster than any human,” said Ricky Gonzalez, CEO of Hubtek. “If you can image your staff not having to read each email or look at every document your company receives and then organize information accurately, you will understand exactly what TABi does in a matter of seconds.”
“The result of having this next level Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology for transportation and logistics operations is more time that can be used to grow your business,” Gonzalez added. “It also means you can improve your focus on continually ensuring customer satisfaction, and enhance the way your employees view your company as a great place to work.”
TABi uses RPA, a rules-based software technology driven by Machine Learning and AI, to turn unstructured and semi-structured data in documents, spreadsheets, and emails into structured data that can be automatically integrated with any transportation or enterprise management system. The technology also does not require the development of an API.
“Through our partnership with Automation Anywhere,” explained Gonzalez, “integrating data between multiple platforms is as easy as setting up a new user account. TABi becomes the new user and seamlessly pulls information from one platform to the next. No lengthy integration process, no manual data entry. Let TABi take care of the mundane so humans can perform the social, creative, service-oriented aspects of a job. The fun stuff!”
TABi is capable of automating several information management tasks for transportation, brokerage, and 3PL operations, including:
- Accounts Payable– By monitoring an email mailbox where carriers send invoices, Proof of Delivery documents, and rate confirmations, TABi automatically identifies various file types and data and places it in the correct enterprise management system or file location.
- Billing– TABi automates invoicing in customized formats based on pre-determined rules and customer-specific restrictions to streamline invoice creation, approval notifications, and more.
- Employee Onboarding/Offboarding– Based on programming per employee type or role, TABi ensures that proper licenses, documents, and forms are in place for newly hired employees, and deactivates licenses for offboarding, saving thousands of dollars in unused licenses.
