About Us


Our Company

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has been used by large corporations for several years, and many have their own inhouse team of developers. However for smaller companies, with smaller budgets and little inhouse expertise, it can be hard to begin to implement RPA even though they can benefit as much from it as the larger ones.

We set out to provide RPA to these smaller companies, in all industries, by offering RPA as a paid monthly service, rather like employing a person but this time a robot. This service suits smaller companies since set up costs are low, and benefits potentially immediate, while also making it cost effective to automate processes which are not full-time human roles.


From Industry to Robotics in the office

Our founder, Chris Foreman, has a background in Manufacturing Management. Having seen the possibilities for Robotics on the shopfloor, he was immediately sold on the possibilties available from Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and the opportunities to make the same productivity improvements in the office. He retrained as a Python developer and RPA programmer, and now oversees development of the Bots himself.

“RPA is not about making people redundant. It’s about liberating employees from aspects of their jobs that are mundane. It gives them the time to focus on more interesting work for them, and more valuable work for the company.”

OUR Process

RPA Implementation

Nowadays we generally operate on remote basis with the following robust process for successful RPA automations:

1. Discovery

After preliminary discussions,  potential processes for automation are identified.

Working with your ‘subject matter expert’, we map and record the current work activity.

2. Development

Using the information gathered, a specification for the project is mutually agreed with the customer.

Development of the RPA Bot commences, and automation capability proven on non-live data.

3. Implementation

Final programming takes place to make the process as robust.

After final testing, the Bot goes into production with Live data, while being ‘Babysat’ to ensure nothing has been missed.

4. Maintain

In an IT environment which can change, RPA requires maintenance to ensure smooth operation.

Bots are continually monitored, and if applicable, workflow adjustments and improvements are made
