DLR Group, a leading entity in the professional services sector, has always been at the forefront of delivering excellence. However, the intricate processes of creating new projects and closing dormant ones within Vision posed significant challenges. The manual nature of these tasks was not only time-consuming but also prone to errors. Recognizing the need for a transformative solution, DLR Group turned to Alirrium and UiPath RPA for a comprehensive automation strategy.

The Challenge: Streamlining Project Creation and Closure

Initiating new projects and creating tasks within Vision required meticulous data entry. Every project demanded a plethora of information to be uploaded and correctly assigned, ensuring all required fields were populated. This labor-intensive process was not just about data entry; it was about ensuring accuracy and completeness.

On the other end of the project lifecycle, closing out projects presented its own set of challenges. It required thorough verification of information across folders and systems to ensure everything was paid, accurate, and nothing was missing. The manual nature of these processes made them susceptible to errors and inefficiencies.

The Solution: Harnessing the Power of UiPath RPA

Alirrium, a certified partner of UiPath, proposed a tailored RPA solution. The strategy involved deploying UiPath software with unattended automation and cloud orchestration capabilities. The primary focus was on Vision, with a forward-looking approach to transition to Vantagepoint in the foreseeable future.

But the innovation didn't stop there. Recognizing the need for continuous improvement, additional software, including the Automation Hub, was introduced. This tool would play a pivotal role in prioritizing future RPA initiatives, ensuring that DLR Group remained at the cutting edge of operational efficiency.

Results & Benefits: A New Era of Efficiency

The implementation of the RPA solution ushered in transformative changes for DLR Group. The company projected a time-saving of over 30 hours per month on administrative data entry tasks alone. But the benefits extended beyond time savings. DLR Group anticipated a significant reduction in error rates and inconsistencies in their systems.

One of the most notable outcomes was the marked improvement in employee satisfaction rates. Project administrators, in particular, expressed immense relief and satisfaction, no longer burdened by the tedious tasks of project creation and closure.


The collaboration between DLR Group, Alirrium, and UiPath serves as a testament to the transformative potential of RPA. By addressing the challenges inherent in project management, DLR Group has not only optimized its operations but also enhanced employee satisfaction. This case study underscores the value of automation in driving operational excellence and employee well-being.
