Our answer came in the form of a robotic process automation (RPA) solution that dealt with all the manual work. We let a bot extract the relevant information from the incoming CVs and fill it in our client’s JIRA instance. Additionally, the bot sanitized the data, if needed, and checked for any duplicate entries of that same candidate. Furthermore, the RPA bot ran on a time-based schedule, so the HR team didn’t need to worry if they remembered to enable it.
Before our solution, our client’s HR team used to process a ticket in around 10 minutes, but with the help of our RPA bot, the tickets get processed in about 2 minutes. This minor managed to save the team around 2 hours per day, which they could use to do more valuable tasks. Our solution also provided flawlessly populated tickets and reduced the human error element greatly. And finally, since the bot ran on a schedule, the HR team could directly focus their attention on progressing new job candidates through the key stages of the recruitment process.
