Starting small with intelligent automation delivered big results.
The automation journey started small, with experiments on smaller tasks requiring minimal resources. The company targeted processes in finance and in their back-office, which required a lot of manual and repetitive work. After implementing automation, the company quickly noticed an increase in employee satisfaction, because employees were now able to focus more on work that required ingenuity and expertise.
We are using RPA to release employees from boring tasks to be able to focus on noble jobs something that requires creativity, knowledge, and background experience.
On the regional frontier of automation, Vale innovates to save more than $2M.
Vale leveraged Automation Anywhere's local presence in Brazil and Portuguese-speaking customer support managers to implement intelligent automation and transform work processes. With over 1,000 bots in production and 350 automation processes, intelligent automation increased productivity and helped Vale avoid costly penalties. Automation efficiently processed a high volume of invoices, enabling employees to act before penalties were applied, resulting in a cost avoidance of over $2 million. The adoption of automation not only improved work productivity but also enhanced employee satisfaction by allowing them to focus on more meaningful tasks.
Taking automation to the frontlines.
Vale plans to expand automation to its primary operations after successful implementation of intelligent automation in corporate functions. They aim to assess how intelligent automation can support mining employees in their daily routines and showcase its capabilities in mines, logistics, ports, and shipping.
