When an employee starts working at the company, they are termed a New Starter and are then further split into one of two New Starter categories. Certain documentation is then required of the employee depending on their New Starter status, throughout which these documents are stored in the company’s system to extract the necessary details about the employee.
The robot created by Blackbook requires the basic details of the New Starter to be entered by the user into an excel sheet. From there, the robot reads the New Starter’s documents, reads the documents through Document Understanding, fills out the sheet and uses the sheet to enter the New Starter into the company’s system.
This system allowed for a more streamlined process of onboarding new employees by reducing the time needed to sort through documents to find the relevant information that needed to be stored.
