Scanlog implements robotic process automation

October 21st 2018

Scanlog strengthens its position at the cutting edge of logistics innovation by embracing robotic process automation.

Scandinavian Logistics Partners is using ProcessRobot from Softomotive to help transform its order booking process and develop a smarter workflow.

ProcessRobot is a leading enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform, including enterprise grade security and controls, with links to best-of-breed AI technologies.

With ProcessRobot handling increasing numbers of customer orders, Scanlog has fortified its position as a technology leader in the logistics sector and can deliver a speedier shipping service for its clients. Mattias Ljungberg, CEO of Scanlog, explains: “With ProcessRobot, we have reduced the time it takes to process a customer order by 89 percent. Previously it took a human co-worker up to four minutes to enter the booking details, now our new digital co-worker completes the task within 20 seconds.”

Scanlog has ambitious plans to automate many other processes with ProcessRobot. The company is currently exploring how the robot could support real-time freight tracking, update currency rates every day in its financial systems, process supplier and customer invoices and help to prepare customized reports and KPIs.

Marios Stavropoulos, CEO of Softomotive concludes, “We have always said that our clients should adopt an agile approach to RPA by starting small, learning quickly and scaling rapidly. This is a great example of this happening in practice.”
