Join our team of experts as they share how you can plan and execute a proven solution to automate complex and time-consuming manual processes.
About the lunch event
Most companies struggle with executing process automation programmes effectively. This is because there are a lot of nuances involved in automating a process and if the business process owners don't focus on these and conveyed them to the developer accurately, the result tends to be automating the wrong things and unable to achieve the return on investment in process automation solutions.
The business information flows at SBT Marketing (a subsidiary of Taranaki Bio Extracts) were excessively reliant on manual data exchange. The organisation has big deliverables in terms of what they want to achieve with digitisation, and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a part of their journey to accelerate business performance.

Presentations by Andrew Buhler, Daniel Lee and Brendan at Upper Dux
Andrew has spent more than two years with the Agricultural Export business of Taranaki Bio Extracts, which is responsible for the logistics of getting the business group’s products to markets all around the world.
Taranaki Bio Extracts is a 50:50 joint venture between ANZCO Foods Ltd and SBT Group. It operates like an SME sized business mainly due to the size in terms of number of people working in the business, however, the processes and operations are highly complex considering the international coverage the business needs to cover. Opportunities were identified in the early stages to streamline existing manual and labour-intensive business processes, and this has led to an on-going project alongside the business as usual activity to improve business information flow within Taranaki Bio Extracts.
Born and bred in Taranaki and from a farming family, Andrew's background is Agricultural based having previously managed dairy farms and worked in finance lending to farming businesses. In his spare time, Andrew actively participates in the social arena through multiple sport activities and maintains an interest in the family farming business. Andrew is highly passionate to improve the company's business processes to ensure the longevity and sustainability of the business which strives to maximise the value of agricultural products and provide a better return to New Zealand farmers.
Brendan currently heads up the Business Optimisation and Employee Growth value streams at Assurity. In his role, he is responsible for leading the team in designing the solution offerings and engaging and uncovering our clients' business challenges that we can help overcome.
With more than 15 years' experience working on business and digital transformation programmes at multi-national companies, Brendan has a proven track record in delivering quantifiable financial results through automating and streamlining business processes.
