JBS's automation odyssey: From proof of concept to full-scale deployment.
Stifled by repetitive, manual work across several business units, JBS partnered with Automation Anywhere to launch an automation program. They began with a CoE involving both US and Mexico members.

They scaled to 212 intelligent automations, saving 220 hours weekly and $250,000 CAD yearly.
