Delixi Electric, a manufacturer from China, has recently implemented an in-office clerical bot with the intention of reducing operational costs, while improving efficiency.
The Zhejiang-based company issues over 5,000 tax credits, to 600 nationwide clients on a monthly basis. Each invoice includes "information collection, verification and recording" -- a process which takes the average employee about 20 minutes to complete. The new clerical bot requires only five minutes to complete each invoice -- accomplishing the task 15 times more efficiently than a human worker.
The bots are currently in what the company describes as 'stage one,' which entails data processing, however it has plans to move into 'stage two,' which entails the implementation of "big data analysis with decision-making intelligence.”
