Cage-Free Innovation: UK’s Largest Poultry Supplier Automates with RPA and Low-Code
2 Sisters Food Group, UK’s largest shared service centre and leading supplier of poultry, embarked on their journey to automation with Mendix’s low-code development and robotic process automation (RPA). Evidently, 2 Sisters primarily solves on financial transactional processing initiatives for approximately 80% of their 42 shared service centres. Jon Heeley, Automation Program Manager at 2 Sisters discovered that their methods of keying in data needed to be modernized as it took too long for transactions to be registered into ERP systems. Prior to their automation journey with Mendix, most of their processes were either Excel-driven or manual, which required a large amount of resources and time to complete. To evolve into the more tech-savvy and digital-first organisation that they aspired to be, Heeley decided to use RPA to design software bots that could handle repeatable keying’s of data and high-volume tasks. The Mendix Platform effectively empowered Heeley and the 2 Sisters team to build a structured inbound database for their RPA software bots.
