Cushman & Wakefield Relies On Rossum
Cushman & Wakefield is one of the world's largest commercial real estate services firms and delivers integrated solutions to landlords, tenants and investors.
The C&W UK Business Rates Management (BRM) Area provides a service to clients with large national real estate portfolios that includes the management and payment of business rates to local councils. The annual Rates Demand statements are mainly paper-based, requiring C&W’s Ratings Team to process over 10,000 demands from 400 different Government Departments and Councils over a two-month period, each council using a custom format.
Rossum worked with the RPA integrator OpenBox to build a turnkey streamlined data capture process to C&W.
We delivered a highly accurate dedicated AI engine that we trained from scratch as Rates Demands contain entirely different set of fields than Invoices or POs.
The project was delivered within 8 weeks since the purchase approval. In production setting, 90% of documents are being processed without manual review.
“We are extremely proud of our work with Cushman & Wakefield and how it is helping transform the real estate industry. Rossum is an integral part of this solution, automating the management of rates demand documents. We chose Rossum’s platform for its user-friendly interface and flexibility, which enabled us to capture data from the unique layout of UK council documents.”
