About Digital Workforce

Digital Workforce Services Plc stands at the forefront of the global business automation landscape. As a versatile, multi-technology provider, they thrive in harnessing the most advanced techniques for solving complex business automation challenges. With a commitment to a pay-per-value model, Digital Workforce has consistently delivered solid results for its clients.


Addressing Complex Healthcare Data Integration and Automation Needs

Ongoing Finnish Health and Social Services reform necessitates seamless integration among many disparate systems and service providers. Since multiple welfare regions have the same challenge and the amount of workload can be unknown due to target system restrictions, it demands a solution that is repeatable and highly scalable. In a single welfare region, hundreds of IT systems are commonplace, while university hospital areas manage even more than a thousand different systems and applications. The challenge lies in automating the synchronization of critical information across these diverse systems. Notably, the partnership between Digital Workforce and Robocorp has yielded substantial success in the execution of multiple projects of this nature, with numerous similar projects on the horizon.

The time spent manually transferring data from these systems translates to precious hours away from essential patient care work. To overcome this challenge, Digital Workforce integrated Robocorp technology into its offering. This strategic decision was driven by the need for a solution to offer the repeatability and scalability required to solve the challenge across different municipalities.

“Robocorp has enabled us to deliver a highly scalable and cost-effective solution for the Healthcare areas, and we are able to achieve great benefits for our customers. Our experience with Robocorp has not only solved our immediate challenges but also enabled our developers to create more powerful and reliable solutions”

Unlocking Scalable Data Migration with Robocorp’s Automation Platform

Robocorp stood out as the ideal solution due to its speed and scalability, making it the natural choice for a data migration use case, especially when dealing with a challenging-to-automate target system and uncertain data volumes. Thanks to Robocorp’s scalable platform, there’s no need for concern about the number of licenses to purchase.

Especially projects with uncertain data volumes are difficult to optimize since you don’t know how many legacy license you would need.

Leveraging Robocorp technology, Digital Workforce successfully developed a code-based browser automation solution. This solution not only exhibited remarkable speed and scalability but also offered easy customization to meet the unique requirements of its customers, further enhancing its versatility and effectiveness.
