At Thoughtonomy we believe that there is more than just a place for a Virtual Workforce, there’s a need for it. By using Robotic Process Automation, we give organisations the opportunity to take the mundane, routine, repetitive tasks that make their employees feel like robots up into the Cloud where they can be actioned in a fraction of the time, and at a fraction of the price, of a person.
This transforms how you can use headcount, frees up your thinking, and delivers cost savings on everything from desk space to diskspace.
