Intelligent Automation

Our next breakfast briefing brings you the freshest thinking on Intelligent Automation

“We can interrogate data, query it, use it, transform it, make decisions on it… this is not conventional RPA, it’s end-to-end Intelligent Automation”

Those are the words of Dominic Howson – Supply Chain Planning and IS Director at Hovis. Dominic has agreed to be the guest speaker at our next senior executive Breakfast Briefing in November. And what he has to say about Intelligent Automation has deep and real implications for all businesses. 

Here is a taster of what he will reveal…

At 11 am every day, Hovis receives the national bread order for just one (of many) major supermarket groups. Hovis then has to source the flour, bake the fresh bread and make dawn deliveries to retail locations right across the UK. 

To meet this unyielding deadline, Hovis has to anticipate demand… and, because this can fluctuate dramatically, it has led to very costly and unsustainable over-production. This was Dominic’s priority challenge.

His solution was to deploy a radical intelligent automation system that could analyse and make sense of disparate data sets from multiple systems. The results were dramatic and immediate.

Issuing notifications 90 minutes faster than traditional ERP tools, this Intelligent Automation platform reduced food waste by 50% in only 8 days! And it didn’t stop there…

The new platform now…

  • Uses event-based triggers to automate links between systems 
  • Continuously interrogates order systems to provide real time visibility
  • Takes rapid, autonomous action to optimise opportunities and resolve issues
  • Obtains and analyses virtually any data type, from any system, to give Hovis infinite scope for future applications.

 “This is a quantum leap forward. Very few platforms have the ability to go end-to-end… to access the raw data… to provide the eventing… to do the AI and the analytics on top… and then to drive the next action. This is a truly comprehensive real time capability”. 

Dominic will openly share his technology journey and his experiences at our Breakfast Briefing – and you are freely invited.
