With its vast employee and engagement facets, the client had multiple challenges on business to technology coherence, scalability and agility. The client was seeking to use Automation to enable the large teams, vendors, partners etc. Two of the key automation challenges were:
VPN access challenge
Pain areas were continuous follow ups, time taken for VPN access to clients. Manual efforts were very high and it was error prone. All the service requests were being captured on excel sheets.
Wi-Fi & Device Access
Access needed to be provided manually to customers and end users for Wi-Fi, Printers, Projectors etc. For example: Hospital patients and their relatives. For Guests, visitors, consulting/temporary employees to the Enterprise Offices & Campuses the provisioning of Wi-Fi was usually not possible, unless specific requests were provided, and it took a long time thus inconveniencing and not enabling any visitors for meetings etc.
The following were the benefits delivered through these automations to the client:
