European Public Sector Agency Improves its Service Operations with NICE Robotic Process Automation

The agency has achieved good results with the NICE solution, cutting
processing costs, reducing errors, and in some instances cutting average
call handling time by up to 40%

HOBOKEN, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#RPANICE (Nasdaq:NICE) today announced that a major European public
sector agency has delivered significant improvements by implementing NICE
Robotic Process Automation
(RPA) which streamlines manual processes
and allows employees to focus on high-value activities.

Working as part of an Automation Delivery Center set up by the agency,
NICE engineers supported the design and building of multiple automation
workflows in a few weeks, and helped deploy them. The solution offers
both “unattended” automation, where robots perform tasks end-to-end, and
“attended” automation, which requires inputs from human employees. This
element of collaboration between humans and robots is a huge advantage
of NICE’s RPA solution, as processes often require a human touch at some

The Automation Delivery Center allows the agency’s staff to
independently and rapidly adapt successful robotic
workflows to processes across the organization, including:

  • 300,000 cases processed annually by Robots where 85% is done without
    human intervention and the remaining passed to humans for processing
  • Automated responses to requests for financial information, including
    gathering and analyzing customer data in a fraction of the time taken
    by humans
  • Routing specific work items to human teams with the right skills and
  • Real-time, on-screen guidance to help frontline representatives
    preempt customer questions and reduce repeat calls

The improved process efficiencies, which support over 5,000 employees,
including the use of attended and unattended Robots, are clearly
evidenced in the following achievements:

  • An 80% reduction in processing costs
  • In some of the call center processes, up to 40% reduction in average
    call handling times has been achieved
  • Elimination of human error in data entry and consistency in delivery

As the NICE Robotic Process Automation solutions are rapidly scalable,
they accommodate seasonal peaks of work without requiring the hiring of
temporary staff. The automated processes further reduce pressure by
facilitating greater customer self-service.

John O’Hara, president of NICE EMEA, said:
“NICE’s Robotic
Process Automation technology is a key element of the agency’s digital
transformation agenda, offering agility and ease of deployment to meet
the agency’s needs at all times. The solution also promotes better
employee engagement and satisfaction, as humans can remain focused on
delivering better frontline service. In this way, the robotic and human
workforce work hand in hand to reinvent customer service.”
