About the project

The Challenge‍
Haern Consulting faced the daunting task of managing voluminous transactional data for its clients efficiently. The traditional method involved manual data entry, validation, and reconciliation by multiple consultants, which was time-consuming, prone to errors, and costly. Recognizing the need for a robust solution to streamline operations and enhance service quality, Haern Consulting partnered with SoftRobot to deploy Aiida, aiming to leverage AI to automate the bookkeeping process.‍

Solution Implementation
Aiida, developed by SoftRobot, is a sophisticated AI-driven platform designed to automate accounting tasks with high precision and minimal human intervention. The implementation involved setting up Aiida to automatically categorize incoming materials, validate data, and seamlessly integrate with the client's existing accounting systems. The transition to Aiida allowed Haern Consulting to shift from manual data handling to supervising the automated workflow through Aiida's web application. This strategic move not only optimized operational efficiency but also significantly improved data accuracy.‍

Seamless Integration and Training
One of the standout features of Aiida is its ease of implementation. SoftRobot ensured that Aiida was integrated with Haern Consulting’s preferred ERP system within a single day, including a comprehensive setup for all client accounts. The platform offers continuous background training, enabling it to learn and adapt to Haern's specific accounting workflows, thereby enhancing its efficiency over time.‍

Impact on Business Operations‍
The result of implementing Aiida was tremendously successful. Previously, a typical client for Haern Consulting with 2000 vouchers yearly, required about 30 hours monthly with up to three consultants involved. Post-Aiida, the efficiency skyrocketed, enabling one consultant to handle the same volume of vouchers in just one third of the time. This drastic reduction in required manpower and time allowed Haern Consulting to transition from an hourly billing model to a fixed monthly fee structure. Additionally, the freed-up resources and time have enabled the firm to enhance its advisory services, providing clients with deeper insights and more strategic value in areas like financial health, liquidity management, and business model optimization.

Economic Benefits
The economic benefits realized by Haern Consulting post-Aiida implementation have been substantial:
-- Reduction in operational costs by minimizing the labor required for basic bookkeeping tasks.
-- Increased revenue per hour, with a higher-value billing model reflecting the sophisticated nature of the service provided.
-- Capability to offer enhanced advisory services at a premium rate, further augmenting profitability.

Strategic Advantages
Beyond the immediate economic benefits, the strategic advantages have marked a pivotal shift in Haern Consulting’s business model:
-- Client Satisfaction and Retention: The efficiency and accuracy of Aiida have significantly enhanced client satisfaction, leading to higher retention rates.
-- Scalability: The automation capabilities provided by Aiida allow Haern Consulting to easily scale its services without proportionate increases in headcount or operational costs.
-- Market Positioning: By adopting cutting-edge technology, Haern Consulting reinforces its reputation as a forward-thinking leader in the accounting and consulting industry.

The partnership between Haern Consulting and SoftRobot, epitomized by the integration of Aiida, illustrates the transformative potential of AI in modernizing traditional industries. The remarkable improvements in efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and service quality not only enhanced Haern Consulting's operational capabilities but also strategically positioned the firm for sustained growth and success. For organizations seeking to harness the power of AI in their operations, this case exemplifies the tangible benefits and strategic leverage that such technologies can offer, making a compelling argument for their widespread adoption in the business world.‍


"SoftRobot's Aiida has been a game-changer for Haern Consulting, streamlining our operations and freeing up valuable resources which have enabled us to focus on providing strategic, high-value advisory services that truly make a difference in our clients' financial and business success."
