How can the Power of VBA
Benefit Your Business?

Warehouse
  Logistics

 

Inventory 
  Control

Distribution

Order
  fulfillment

Problem:

Your team is responsible for performing logistical operations in the warehouse, including order creation, order release, and receiving of purchase orders/sales orders. These tasks are currently done manually through the Oracle SRP system.

Solution:

To streamline and automate the process, a UiPath Robot will be implemented. The robot will handle report generation, validations, order creation, order release, and consolidation of received items in purchase orders and sales orders.

Benefits:
  1. Time Savings:

    • Ordering: Currently taking 2 hours per day, across 5 sites, resulting in 10 hours per day.

    • Release of orders: Currently taking 2 hours per day.

    • Release of purchase orders/sales orders: Currently taking 8 hours per run, with 2 people involved,   totaling 16 hours per run (2 times per week).

    • In total, automation will save approximately 92 hours per week.

  2. Increased Accuracy:

    • Automating the release of orders and purchase orders minimizes errors in payments and overordering. The automated process ensures greater precision and reduces the risk of mistakes that can occur during manual operations.

 Extraction

 

promotional
  accuracy

document
  processing

market
  research

 

Problem:

You receive Numerator/Albertson's promotion data and manually review images of ads/promotions embedded in an Excel file to validate the data before it can be ingested.

 

This process takes up to 5 hours per week.

Solution:

Design a process that utilizes UiPath and Google OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to scan each image, extract the text, validate the data for accuracy, and create a machine-readable file to be loaded into Data Foundation.

Benefits:
  1. Time Savings:

    • The automated process takes only 1 minute per execution compared to 5 hours previously.

  2. Process Efficiency:

    • The automation streamlines the review and validation of promotion data, reducing the manual effort required.

  3. Reduction of Manual Errors:​

    1. By automating the extraction and validation process, the reliance on manual review is minimized, leading to fewer errors in the data.​

Supplier
 forecasts
 

supplier
  relationship
  management

inventory
  control


supply
  projections

Problem:

You receive forecast data from suppliers and manually compare it with demand data to provide forecast recommendations for analysis and business decisions.

 

This Packaging Model Management Process takes

up to 40 hours per execution.

Solution:

Automate the forecast update process using a UiPath Robot. The robot identifies the SKUs (Stock Keeping Units) that need to be updated and recommends percentage increases or decreases based on historical usage or forecasted run rates.

Benefits:
  1. Time Savings:

    • The automated process takes only 3 to 6 minutes per execution compared to the previous 40 hours of manual work.

  2. Improved Analytics:

    • By automating the forecast update process, we can generate more accurate and timely recommendations for analysis and decision-making.

  3. Process Efficiency:​

    1. The automation streamlines the forecasting process, reducing the manual effort required and increasing overall efficiency.​

SAP
  control

 

Data
  validations

data
  analytics

data
  tracking

data
  migration

Problem:

Our team is responsible for validating and ensuring that all customer changes in SAP have proper evidence and screenshots for control purposes.

 

This manual process takes up to 2 hours per execution.

Solution:

Automate the process using a UiPath Robot. The robot generates SAP reports and reads through SharePoint files to validate and find evidence of customer changes. It then compiles a summary email with the evidence and sends it to the Data Migration Option (DMO) team.

Benefits:
  1. Time Savings:

    • The automated process takes only 10 minutes per execution compared to the previous 2 hours of manual work.

  2. Improved Analytics:

    • By automating the validation and evidence gathering process, we can improve the accuracy and efficiency of data analysis and reporting.

  3. Process Efficiency:​

    1. Automation minimizes the risk of manual errors that can occur during the validation process, ensuring data integrity and compliance with control requirements.​
