Exit from the EU: How automation can help UK Government meet the challenge

See How

Over a quarter of working hours in central government can be freed up through automation*

Exiting the European Union (EU) is one of the largest upheavals the United Kingdom (UK) government has ever faced. Whatever the final outcome, the shape, scale, and focus of government is changing dramatically. More than 16,000 civil servants are being recruited and redeployed to the task.**

Given the timescales, assigning more people is only part of the solution.

Robotic process automation (RPA) offers Central Government a way to free up staff while increasing operational effectiveness. Robots work 24/7, need no training, and can be scaled up in minutes to cope with huge workloads. Quick and cost-effective to develop and deploy, automations securely integrate new and legacy systems to ensure the information flow needed to keep operations running smoothly during rapid change.

Exiting the EU provides the ideal opportunity for UK government departments to accelerate their adoption of RPA and automation technologies. This white paper examines the benefits RPA brings to Central Government, both in day-to-day operations and meeting the challenge of leaving the EU.
