Service scope

Service scope
Software add-on or extension No
Cloud deployment model Private cloud
Service constraints In terms of use cases, RIA should be applied to processes meeting certain feasibility and suitability criteria. The primary technical constraint is that Robotics software requires access (via the desktop) to whichever applications are necessary to operate the process to be automated. We can work with you to address both of these requirements.
System requirements
  • Secure connectivity to business applications, e.g. via VPN
  • User accounts provided for use by the Robotics software
  • Host server(s) specification to meet selected vendor’s requirements
  • Host virtual desktop(s) specification to meet selected vendor’s requirements

User support

User support
Email or online ticketing support Yes, at extra cost
Support response times Up to 24/7; tailored to client’s requirements. Response times at weekends remain the same.

Web chat support No
Onsite support Yes, at extra cost
Support levels Support available in various levels, from office hours only, to 24/7. Service desk, email, and phone support are available, and prices will be determined as part of the overall engagement, as they are bespoke for each client.
Support available to third parties No

Onboarding and offboarding

Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started The engagement team will organise workshops with the client team, introducing the rationale for the process automation, how the project will be run, and what users can expect from the service once it is completed. If clients need their people trained in the software that is an available option, and will be priced separately. The software vendors we work with provide training materials, and Deloitte can arrange for our own subject matter experts to facilitate training, either on-site or off-site. User documentation will be supplied, if clients request our assistance in building an internal Centre of Excellence for their RIA operations.
Service documentation No
End-of-contract data extraction All data is owned by the client, and all outputs are data required by the client in the course of their automation programme execution. The digital workforce is installed on-premise, or on a private cloud, and the data is extracted in accordance with client data handling policies/regulations, and kept only by them. The content of the client’s log files can be provided in various formats (eg. CSV).
End-of-contract process We will discuss with customers any off-boarding, service migration or scope of exit requirements and reach agreement on the most suitable approach prior to an order being placed. The requirements should be documented in the Order Form by the customer, and Deloitte will include details in the Order Form as agreed between Deloitte and the customer.

Using the service

Using the service
Web browser interface No
Application to install Yes
Compatible operating systems Windows
Designed for use on mobile devices No
Customisation available Yes
Description of customisation All our clients’ business problems are unique to them, and their context. Our RIA managed service helps clients ensure their automated processes are scoped, designed, built, tested, and operationalised, ensuring a BAU footing that improves output quality and accuracy, increases process speed, provides a flexible digital workforce that is available 24/7, and reduces costs. At each phase of the project, clients are involved in the customisation, and the users of the service are engaged throughout, to ensure processes are automated accurately and effectively. Users help customise and optimise processes, ahead of their being automated, during the build through collaboration with the development and implementation team, with whom they will work very closely throughout.


Independence of resources The Robotics software has a queue management capability, and priorities are assigned by the Robotics operations team, in conjunction with the client. Dependent on the software vendor selected, robots will self-manage the workload, and will balance requirements between robots. An idle robot will pick up the next task in the queue, and will execute it as per its instructions.
