KILDEER, Ill.—The Reshoring Initiative and Intellilink are seeking a company to participate in a joint research project to confirm whether back office processes can be reshored competitively using local U.S.-based staff and Robotic Process Automation software.
If the project is successful, the participating company will receive higher productivity and an ongoing 50 percent cost savings compared to offshore outsourcing, according to a RI release.
The project participant can be from any industry, but must now be spending at least $150,000 per year on offshored BOPs either directly or through an outside firm. Suitable process areas include activities within finance and accounting, human resources or information technology.
The BOP research project aims to confirm that one software robot and one local client employee are capable of undertaking the work of five offshore resources. Intellilink will offer consulting resources at a discounted cost of 25 percent of its usual rate and provide a free trial software robot to use during the research project. The participating company will fully document its results and economics under the project.
Details about the project and a link to apply are available at reshorenow.org/back-office-research.
