The Patriot Solution
Challege: A midsized outsourcing firm was seeking to optimize their human resources function. Current staffing levels were insufficient to manage demand of fulltime equivalents AND flex during demand for third-party staff augmentation. Additionally, there were opportunities to reduce third-party billing and invoicing complexities.
Patriot Solution: We designed and implemented a managed services solution that automated the approval, requisition and sourcing process for temporary contractors. Although this process is managed by Procurement, we instantiated a governance model to ensure alignment with each departments' strategic objectives.
Testimonial: "Their expertise was invaluable and the results were transformational. We were able to redeploy internal HR resources and form strategic relationship with third parties more efficiently than ever before"
Challenge: A large multinational systems integrator required 20 technicians in 10 states to migrate desktop systems to the latest version of Windows. The project had aggressive timelines AND budget.
Patriot Solution: Our team located and prequalified 25 premier, certified technicians eager to engage with our client's project management team. With little supervision our techs performed the refresh on time and on budget.
Testimonial: "After interviewing the first several candidates, it was clear that our Patriot recruiting partners understood the critical-to-success attributes of the techs we needed. The project was completed without a hitch."
Challenge: A giant US retailer required two quality assurance analysts for a project in Brazil. In addition to the technical requirements, the resources were required to speak Spanish and Portuguese.
Patriot Solution: Patriot recruiters located, hired and arranged transportation and temporary housing for the consultants to complete the six month assignment in Sao Paulo.
Testimonial: "We knew our requirements were difficult to fulfill. The confidence exuded and subsequent delivery of candidates by Patriot recruiters shocked our management team! Even more shocking were the results: The project was completed to the satisfaction of our, notoriously difficult, client"
Challenge: A midsized pharmaceutical firm required specialized resources for an Oracle system rollout. Their internal HR department was fully utilized handling annual open enrollment. They turned to Patriot recruiters for help locating passive candidates with the niche skills required for the project.
Patriot Solution: As a process-driven organization, our Patriot recruiters take the time to understand, up front, the client's technical requirements, the working environment and culture before engaging candidates. Our background in the pharmaceutical business enabled us to locate, and place, several contractors that went on to join our client as full time associates.
Testimonial: "They took the time to understand the attributes of a successful candidate beyond the technical requirements. The preliminary work conducted at the onset produced a targeted, short list of viable candidates saving us valuable time."

Companies are increasingly using robot-led automation to perform routine business processes and transform today’s workplace by mimicking the ways people interact with software applications. Intelligent Automation (IA) and Robot Process Automation (RPA) have the potential to transform today’s business processes as dramatically as the machines of the Industrial Revolution changed the factory floor.
Repeatable, predictable interactions with IT applications are best suited for RPA tools, which can improve the efficiency of these processes. The software “robots” mimic the way that people interact with applications by following simple rules to make decisions. Software robots can handle entire end-to-end processes typically leaving only exceptions to require human interaction.
Intelligent Automation has the potential to automate non-routine business processes that require intuition, judgment, and problem solving. Combining robotic process automation and powerful analytics gives way to a new breed of cognitive technologies with human-like capabilities that can either assist in the performance of non-routine tasks or entirely automate those tasks. The growing use of cognitive technologies in conjunction with RPA is an emerging trend in cutting-edge IT solutions today.
Patriot Staffing has experience in placing leading robotics consultants who have advanced this initiative within our client businesses, allowing our clients to be on the cutting edge of this emerging technology. Please contact us today for assistance with your robotics requirements.
