The Automation Bright Idea Contest is your opportunity to shine!

By examining your own functions and processes with your judgment skills, submit an idea for automating a routine task that you currently perform manually. This could be an idea for robotic process automation (RPA) or intelligent automation. The judging panel is looking for tasks that our employees perform that are repeatable, high volume, rules-based, and non-judgment-oriented that would translate into an automated process.

Guidelines

Good RPA candidates are:

  • Rules Based. “If-then” logic with no human decisions
  • Stable. Changes are infrequent.
  • Standardized inputs.
  • Repetitive and manual.
  • High Volume. (Items that are done once a month are not the best RPA candidates.)

Examples of some processes we have automated using RPA:

  • Encompass Services Ordering.
  • Ordering Tax Services via the web.
  • Generating CPLs from email requests.

Intelligent Automation Candidates may involve:

  • More complex decisions.
  • Supervision (human and technology).
  • Data extraction.

Indecomm examples that involve intelligent automation are:

  • IncomeGenius® (Data extracted from tax returns, income calculation rules programmed)
  • LE/CD audits automated through AuditGeniusTM
