Reimagine the Intake Process with Cognizant’s Smart Intake COE
At Cognizant, the focus of operational excellence goes beyond the traditional event based model of improvement towards a long term change in our clients’ ways of doing business. Our solutions are innovative and combine both technology and domain expertise thus addressing the key industry and business challenges of our clients. One of Cognizant’s key focus areas has been Digital Transformation. In its pursuit to unlock Digital Capabilities, Cognizant launched the Smart Intake COE in 2018.
Cognizant aspires to be the amongst the Top 3 leaders in Intake Solutions by 2020 through this initiative which focusses on driving digitization at source. Smart Intake COE’s mission is to significantly reduce manual efforts through automation by converting all kinds of data and documents into machine-readable formats with help of type/hand-written recognition, machine learning, image enhancement, language translation & AI tools, thereby solve for intake challenges faced by different practices in order to deliver significant savings for the business.
The services industry has had only limited success in fully leveraging RPA Automation and Analytics in the downstream scope because of the intake challenges such as image enhancement, handwriting recognition and language translation faced by different practices.
Cognizant Digital Operations receives a wide spectrum of inputs such as unstructured, structured, standard & non-standard documents and compatibility of existing workflow to the Intake tools still holds a challenge that the initiative focusses to solve for quickly. Each vertical and account within Cognizant Digital Operations experiences this problem and hence the Smart Intake efforts are kept Vertical agnostic and encompasses all Service Lines depending on the various types of input available.
