KILDEER, IL — The Reshoring Initiative and Intellilink are seeking a company to participate in a joint research project to confirm whether back office processes (BOPs) can be reshored competitively using local U.S.-based staff and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software. If the project is successful, the participating company will achieve higher productivity and an ongoing 50% cost savings vs. offshore outsourcing. The U.S. will have the potential to bring back up to one million BOP jobs even at the higher productivity levels.

The project participant can be from any industry but must now be spending at least $150,000/year on offshored BOPs either directly, or thru an outside firm. Suitable process areas include activities within finance & accounting, human resources or information technology.

The BOP research project aims to confirm that one software robot and one local client employee are capable of undertaking the work of five offshore resources. For the participating company, Intellilink will offer consulting resources at a discounted cost of 25 percent of its usual consulting bill rate and provide a free trial software robot to use during the research project. In exchange, the participating company will fully document its results and economics under the project.

Intellilink is confident the participating company will not only generate large cost savings from deploying RPA software but also deliver higher quality service through the use of local U.S.-based employees for BOP.
