Acquaint us with a case study of how you changed the scenario for the better through one of your services/solutions.

A large logistics and shipping company in India faced the significant challenge of reducing turnaround time (TAT) and human errors while improving productivity in their import documentation process. Processing document sets from around 80 countries, the company dealt with approximately 2,500 imports per month, each involving multiple documents and modes of transport. The manual nature of the process resulted in extended TAT, low productivity, and costly human errors requiring rework.

To address these issues, Techaways Consulting implemented an intelligent automation solution using a leading platform. This solution integrated key components, including Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Business Process Management System (BPMS), and Artificial Intelligence (AI). The platform featured an AI-enabled Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) engine that automated document classification and data extraction. A maker-checker mechanism was employed, leveraging the BPMS, to validate the accuracy of the AI-enabled IDP results. Once verified, the BOT automatically performed essential activities such as data upload into the ERP system, generation of custom documents, and email invoices to clients. This streamlined approach significantly emailed TAT, enhanced accuracy, and

improved overall productivity in the import documentation process.

What is the future roadmap for Techaways Consulting? Where is it headed for the next five years?
Techaways Consulting has a clear vision for its future roadmap. The company aspires to become a thought leader in the Intelligent Automation domain, catering not only to the needs of large enterprises but also to those of MSMEs(Micro Small and Medium Enterprises). One of the key challenges faced by enterprises, particularly in the early stages of adoption of Intelligent Automation initiatives, is how to kick-start their automation journey. Intelligent Automation platforms encompass various technologies such as RPA, BPMS, AI, and Analytics. Investing in a complete platform can sometimes involve paying for components that enterprises already possess, leading to insufficient returns on investment due to smaller-scale adoption. To address these challenges, Techaways offers Intelligent Automation solutions as a service.

For the MSME sector, Techaways is investing in the development of their platform called "NEXIA." Solutions built on this platform will only be available as a service, with configurable templates for common processes and tasks. The company's goal over the next five years is to completely transform its offerings into service based solutions. Techaways aims to become a fully automated, BOTs-driven organization, taking charge of client processes and delivering business process outputs instead of merely providing technology solutions.
