Straight Through Processing of Feedback Forms
Sharing experiences around automating a manual process taking 60 days to straight through processing within minutes using NIIT’s SLICE Framework. A leading specialist travel operator captures feedback using handwritten forms which are manually fed into their CRM system. This document talks about how this process was automated using AI / ML to improve efficiency in operations and reduce cost. It also describes the challenges in adoption of the solution when taking it beyond a proof of concept to a full-fledged production roll out.
