Defence Equipment & Support’s RPA solution, delivered in partnership with Capgemini, has the potential to transform a huge variety of processes and deliver substantial savings and efficiencies. Early indications are already very exciting, and our task now is to capitalise on these opportunities and develop strong business cases for the use of automation, where appropriate, elsewhere in our organisation and within the MOD as a whole.
