RPA in Manufacturing

Leading the way in RPA for the Manufacturing Industry.

Ashling Partners are the trusted expert in scaling robotic process automation (RPA), and artificial intelligence (AI) for the Manufacturing Industry.

The Manufacturing industry has always looked for better, faster, and more cost effective methods for building the materials they create. These processes are a constant focus of improvement and are extremely efficient. Now that focus can also occur for back-office and front-office processes.

Founded in the heart of US manufacturing and global industry, Ashling Partners delivers intelligent automation to manufacturing companies around the world. As a UiPath Diamond Partner focused on RPA in manufacturing, we strive to help companies save money and improve business outcomes using robotic process automation and intelligent AI.

Listen to what some of our clients had to say about us:

I was very challenging as a stakeholder, but they won me over

I like that they are focused on UiPath, because that’s where we are at

We value them as a trusted advisor

Expertise in the niche area (of RPA) is very important. Big firms say they get it, but they don’t really understand how the pieces come together

“The best consultants we have ever worked with”

Here are some of the core beliefs in regard to RPA and AI as written by Ashling Partners co-founders:

At Ashling, we partner with companies open to embracing RPA and AI solutions to streamline internal processes and show them how to bridge the gap between their business and these emerging technologies.

Our team is committed to being there every step of the way to ensure clients can optimize these solutions at scale to help increase productivity and lower the cost of their processes.

In today’s business environment, manufacturing organizations are constantly looking for ways to minimize their maintenance efforts and costs, so they can reinvest themselves into improving product innovations and customer service. As a result, there’s been a fundamental shift toward utilizing automation to create efficiencies in many processes across the enterprise.

Our approach is based on the foundational principle that business outcomes should drive all strategic programs. And technology should be the vehicle to enable innovation and creativity in those new strategies.

An example of RPA in Manufacturing

Ashling Partners believes that organizations must optimize their data to learn how they can move faster and with improved efficiency to be competitive in the current business climate. We believe in our original concept of “Insource to Innovate” models that empower organizations to create a culture of innovations internally and solve their own challenges versus outsourcing their problems to someone else. We are a data-driven organization within our own company, and in how we advise our clients.

We also realize that reinventing processes via new technologies often is an enormous, expensive, and risky initiative for many companies, and can be difficult to undertake and gain internal support for without a trusted partner.

Our approach centers on partnering with clients to understand their business process efficiency and innovation goals. We first identify areas of improvement within a process as the foundation – there is no value in automating a bad process. Once we understand the corporate objectives and desired business outcomes, and have an efficiency process mapped, we can not only guide them to the right technology, but also support them in managing the new solutions, processes, culture and other changes required for success.

Ashling Partners believes that RPA and AI Technologies, when used to automate frequent, repetitive processes, offer the most optimal means for manufacturing organizations to create enterprise-wide efficiencies.

But we have also found that this shift toward embracing emerging technologies, including RPA and AI, to drive efficiencies has also exposes a gap in the overall understanding of how leveraging such solutions will best benefit your manufacturing organization – as well as the requirements needed to support them.

These requirements include:

Additional technical skills — soft skills and hard skills

Multi-disciplinary teams

Reorganization of roles and processes

Ongoing support


Change Management and re-training programs

Our team offers vast experience and thought leadership about the benefits and challenges RPA and AI technologies present and can provide an outside-in perspective of their current state to assist with clients’ approaches to leveraging such solutions. We lead with education and collaboration and offer working sessions to help enterprises understand the opportunities and risks RPA and AI can present companies depending on their size and industry. We target high-impact use cases and define key success metrics for those top targets within their various business processes.

By contextualizing a blueprint that outlines both business and technical requirements needed to introduce RPA and AI, we help limit risk and set clients up for a successful implementation and future outcomes.

The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.

After reading all that I predict you have an inkling whether Ashling Partners is a good fit for your organization or not.

If you’re still up in the air about taking the next step, we have included a beginner’s guide to RPA that may teach you a thing or two about RPA and AI. But first a quote from Bill Gates:

Intelligent Process Automation & Artificial Intelligence is driving revolutionary changes in the way we work.

Beginners Guide to RPA

What is Robotic Process Automation (RPA)?

  • RPA is a technology allowing computer software known as a “robot” to execute repetitive business processes formerly handled by humans.
  • RPA saves organizations time and money by improving business processes.
  • With proper guidance, RPA “bots” can learn, mimic, and execute rules-based business processes.

How does Robotic Process Automation work?

  • RPA robots can log into applications, create folders, copy and paste data, pretty much anything humans can do.
  • RPA “bots” can complete any repeatable processes driven by business rules, in addition to high volume tasks.
  • RPA gives you quick ROI, improves office efficiency, and gives companies more time for customer service.

What are the business benefits of RPA?

  • Software robots can improve company workflow, resulting in profitability and accuracy in addition to flexibility and scalability.
  • RPA frees up your employees to focus on more human tasks like solving business problems, conducting analysis, and improving processes.
  • RPA helps deliver an improved customer experience, with faster turnaround times and more output.
