Kofola hired a cloud robot to do a robotic job

Kofola ``hired`` a cloud robot to do a robotic job

Kofola has had previous experience with robotic workers. They had been used, for example, by their Finance Department. However, that implementation was accompanied by various problems. That’s why the IT specialists took special care in specifying what they expected from the robot. Every Kofola employee uses dozens of systems. For Kofola IT specialists, these were routine tasks which further increased the likelihood of making errors. A reverse analysis revealed that cumulatively these activities “cost” the IT department one month of work a year. This was enough to consider investing in their automation.

  • Increase the capacity of IT Department staff and be able to handle all requests without the need to enlarge the team by hiring additional staff.
  • Identify and unburden people from having to perform repetitive tasks that do not require any special skills.
  • Create more space and time for the IT team to perform creative work that develops the people and the company.
  • Optimize the functioning of the IT Department.


  • Identify processes suitable for automation.
  • Audit the information systems involved in the employee termination process.
  • Analyse employee termination processes: the description and ordering of steps and the creation of standardized models.
    Design a robotic process automation (RPA) solution in the cloud system.
  • Test in a simulated environment and the deployment and optimization of the solution.
  • Detailed monitoring and reporting, providing the client with a 24/7 overview of how the robot works in qualitative and quantitative terms.


The software robot saves the Kofola’s IT Department one month of routine work per year.

Minimal error rate of employee termination-related operations.

Higher IT staff satisfaction due to the robot helping them with routine work they no longer have to do themselves.

Costs reduction.

An ITSM migration with a difference


ITSM migrations are a vital part of the services we offer. With vast experience working on pan-European and now North and Latin American projects, this project is a tribute to our methodology, innovation and people responsible for delivering it as mapped out by HPE.
Case study was published 15.08.2017


  • Manage a complex and important transformation project covering the North and
    Latin America region
  • Create a solution, which could facilitate the migration within 13 months
  • Upgrade and consolidate a large number of its major clients onto a new digital
    workflow platform before the imminent decommissioning of the legacy platform


  • Migration to both ITSM Toolsets and SOM (Storage Operations Manager) Archive
  • New ITSM component was for the first time developed by a supplier, not internally
  • Completion of data analysis and evaluation to address specific requirements
    including limitations
  • Development of a blueprint for mainframe migrations to future model ITSM
  • Creation of a first ever model in HPE of a shared LPAR migration


Migration of ITSM workflow components to HPE’s future model ITSM

Soitron provided HPE with an end-to-end solution to facilitate an urgent legacy migration project involving 37 of HPE’s largest customers in North and Latin America

Rapid response to help HPE migrate key clients to a new service portal

Rapid response to help HPE migrate key clients to a new service portal

Soitron approached the project with such confidence and the team was motivated to do a good job. We started withan environment that had
not been maintained properly for some time, with much of the data being outdated. We took that environment and cleaned it up and brought the information up to date. We also created excellen project documentation
which can be used for future migration activities and ensure smooth ongoing operations. We are very proud of what was achieved by this team.”

The art of bringing two incompatible systems together



When one of the world’s largest chemical companies appointed Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to take over its Managed Service contract, HPE needed to complete a highly complex full-service global integration without its client providing any engineering support.

However when HPE was instructed that it couldn’t utilise its proprietary ITSM solution, it needed to find a way to integrate its HP Service Manager (HPSM) with its client’s existing SAP system. The big challenge was that these two systems were incompatible and unable to communicate with each other. Soitron was brought on board to handle the project on the behalf of HPE, and took on the challenge from start to finish.

With a tough challenge presented to them, Soitron was instrumental in leading this project and creating a realistic solution.
While understanding HPE was a real benefit, it was also the ability to problem solve and think out of the box that made this project a success.

EMEA Project Delivery Manager, HPE

This project demonstrated how Soitron can:

*  Integrate multiple platforms together without any business disruption
*  Making incompatible systems work together
*  Handle complex and challenging projects while adhering to very tight deadlines
*  Problem solve to the very highest of industry levels
*  Design scalable solutions for any volume of transactions

An ITSM transformation programme like no other

Transformation programme like no other

This project was unique because of its extreme complexity and size. From Soitron’s perspective, it was an interesting challenge, and delivering these results successfully has made us very proud. We utilised resources in four countries, where everyone worked continuously to achieve a very clear goal. I believe this is a great showcase of Soitron’s capabilities for ITSM transformations.

  • Get the entire Royal Dutch Shell business migrated to the new, future-proof HPE
  • Find the right ITSM tools to migrate to the new HPSM platform as soon as possible
  • Achieve the migration without any negative impact to Shell’s Businesses


  • Migration to both ITSM Toolsets and SOM (Storage Operations Manager) Archive
  • Lead the Shell transformation from start to finish in a limited time

More than 20 non-financial benefits were realised across the Shell and HPE businesses

Monthly operational cost reduction, which recovered programme cost in approximately five months

Completion of this programme allowed HPE to initiate the shutdown of the old system

Final timeline and costs were significantly lower than equivalent and even smaller Programmes

Transition from staff augmentation to a service based model


Delivering efficiencies through smart desktop management


* A stable local partner who will participate in the start-up of a global IT centre and ensure recruitment as well as the overall flow of human resources;

* Continuous cost reduction and streamlining of services after the start of cooperation.


* Change of contract from personnel leasing to a service model (the customer does not pay according to the number of employees of the centre but according to the amount of services used);

* Reduction of unit price of the provided services and quality improvement by increasing productivity, motivation, and commitment of external staff.

” While existing model was suitable for the early stage of the relationship it shortly
showed to be suboptimal to meet HP needs, as it did not stimulate the
environment of continuous productivity and quality improvements, neither it provided scalability and all that was critical for the overall success. As Soitron gained the deeper
knowledge of the HP environment, tools and processes, and become knowledgeable
of true HP needs we have decided to move out of the staff augmentation model towards service based delivery.
