SYKES & Royal Mail Group Awarded Automation Project of Year

The Global Sourcing Association (GSA) has chosen SYKES as the winner of the Automation Project of the Year Award alongside our brand partner Royal Mail Group (RMG). SYKES Digital Services (SDS) became one of RMG’s key delivery partners in 2018, working alongside RMG to design, develop, and deploy automated solutions that have seen impressive results. When considering SYKES and RMG for the award, the GSA looked at the following business outcomes:

  • Increased colleague efficiency, satisfaction, and engagement
  • 200,000 hours given back to delivery office managers
  • Improved business compliance, leading to increased product performance and customer satisfaction
  • Focus on operational efficiency
  • Increased consistency and standardization of information and improved business compliance
  • Automation “beachhead” established driving ever greater adoption in operations

“Having a strong partner work alongside us through the entire automation process has been instrumental in realizing the success of this project,” said Jonathan Gavan, the Process Simplification and Automation Program’s CoE manager. “SDS has enabled us to achieve rapid time to value and results while maintaining our high customer satisfaction during this transitional period.”

SYKES is a preferred partner for RMG and other clients across industries looking to achieve business success through automation. This award from the GSA recognizes our demonstrated leadership in successfully implementing robust robotic process automation (RPA) programs that produce significant results over time.

We are always looking for ways to partner with other organizations and bring value to each person involved in the process. To see some of our recent wins, please visit our awards \page.
