Automagica – Oakwood top 10 contributors on Github!

We are proud to announce that Automagica, our Robotic Process Automation software (RPA) is trending on Github this week. We noticed a sudden peak in engagement in our repository and were happy to see that for a few days we were the #2 Python repository and Oakwood was in the top 10 of open source contributors because of Automagica trending. These are the top 3 reasons why our robots are open source.

Transparency

For us, open source is an aspect of transparency. Benefits of transparency include establishing trust with your customers and community and setting an example of open and honest business practice. We have automated processes in different industries where we work with all kinds of sensitive data, including financial in data large corporates and confidential patient data in healthcare. One can advocate being open, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating and by developing and releasing out in the open we show this by doing.

Community feedback

With almost a thousand new community members in a few days, we get a constant feedback from everyone involved. Lots of people testing, trying Automagica out in different environments and automating different applications and eventually reporting possible issues or improvements. This feedback is extremely useful for our development team to improve our code even further.

Resource availability

We like to encourage independence. When we automate processes for our clients, we offer consulting for process discovery, automation, custom development and maintenance. However, part of our open source philosophy is to not create vendor lock-in. We want our clients to have the option of choice in case they already have their own resources, either in-house or elsewhere.

Electronic health record synchronization at large Belgian hospital

An electronic health record (EHR) is the systematized data collection of patient and population electronically stored health information in a digital format. EHRs may include a range of data, including demographics, medical history, medication and allergies, immunization status, laboratory test results, radiology images, vital signs, personal statistics like age and weight, and billing information.

This large Belgian hospital faced a challenge in synchronizing EHR data from their central applications to various in-house applications and systems. Automagica robots now synchronize this data safely from the source of truth to multiple subsystems, making it safer, faster and more convenient for hospital staff to provide quality healthcare.

The data synchronization required a 0% error rate, which is possible due to the Automagica portal. The portal monitors the processes 24/7 and high-quality automatic reports are generated and send multiple times a day to ensure flawless operation.

Updating exchange rates in SAP

For financial reporting requirements, one of our clients has to continuously keep track of exchange rates for international currencies in its  SAP system. In the past, our client had outsourced this activity to a team in India, keeping track of the international currency exchange rates and updating them manually in SAP for each international currency pair. This was a daily and manual routine, however unfortunately resulting in a lot of errors in entering the data. When errors occurred, this generated a backlash on the financial reporting, requiring a lot of rework and causing reporting delays.

With Automagica, updating these exchange rates becomes a breeze to automate. The Automagica robot visits the website of the European Central Bank, taking note of the most up-to-date market exchange rates for foreign currencies. It then logs into our clients SAP system to automatically maintain the currency exchange rates with the OB08 transaction. If an exchange rate for a particular pair already exists, it is either replaced or skipped.

In the video below, you can see our robot in the SAP sandbox environment for one of our implementation partners:

The robot is started through the Automagica Portal, one of the enterprise features we are offering to our Automagica clients.

Using our Automagica robot, our client was able to fully automate the process of updating foreign currency exchange rates in its SAP system, resulting in a 0% error rate with regards to exchange rates and timely financial reporting.

Automated digital signing of contracts with eID in Retail

For Auva a robot was developed that completely integrates the Belgian government-issued electronic ID within a contract signing process. This allows Auva to provide their customers with a seamless experience when they need to sign a legally binding document from within Auva’s retail stores.

For renting a PC or notebook, Auva provides a range of flexible solutions. In the past, the contract would have to be drafted and filled in by an Auva employee manually, which would quickly take up a couple of minutes with a risk of (human) errors. Now the customer only has to provide his eID and the contract is drafted automatically, ready for signing, reducing the entire process to less than one minute for the customer and reducing the risk of human errors to nearly zero.

Introduced for the first time at their yearly event “ComputerFestival 2018”, Auva now offers their clients and contacts this easier way to sign legally binding contracts with them. Soon the solution will be rolled out to all of their retail stores to further increase the efficiency and reduce waiting times for their customers.

Auva offers end-to-end servicing in IT for small businesses and home users. Their highly specialized personnel is ready to provide you with tailored advice. Check out their website for more information: www.auva.be.
