The Robot Exchange

RPA in IVA Market

An Insolvency Practitioner based in the UK began to focus on reducing the overall costs of managing personal IVAs. After a period of acquisition, which included purchasing not only the IVA portfolio, but also, the different systems which serviced the IVAs, this provider was struggling with managing the manual tasks of financial reconciliation as well as the weight of PDF attachments. The need to change was driven by the change in creditor’s views of how category 1 costs should be applied to the individual IVAs.

The Robot Exchange undertook a small 2-day process audit to identify the most valuable process to automate. The process that was prioritised was the one that was very manual, considered non-value add but critical in nature.

The Robot Exchange produced a document which captured the process for sign off with the client, then, within 2 weeks, produced a free proof of concept. The process was around the Insolvency Practitioners proposal document.

Overall, the process timescale reduced from 8 days to 2 days (though by digitising the data quicker, this has enabled the business to automate more decisions and reduce the extra day of manual review)

The advantages of the RPA process were clear three-fold:

  1.  Insolvency practitioners were informed of whether their proposal was accepted earlier with the follow-on benefit that the customer (debtor) is informed earlier.
  2. The costs of the 3rd party supplier were reduced to nothing.
  3. Compliance decisions around the proposal were immediate and reduced stress on the debtor.
