Thailand’s top retail developer leverages Workato’s Bots to establish a stronger connection with their employees for the digital workplace transformation
SINGAPORE - 14 June 2022 - Workato, the leading Enterprise Automation platform, announced today that Central Group, Thailand's top retail, property and hospitality conglomerate, will use Workato to transform and elevate employee experience. They started the initiative by streamlining processes and leveraging easy-to-use, mobile-friendly solutions to establish a stronger connection with their large frontline workforce. The company is also looking to replace outdated technology tools, and eliminate manual and repetitive work with automations. This recent adoption marked an important step of Central Group toward becoming a Digi-Lifestyle Platform.
The Workato platform gives Central Group the ability to simplify and value-add to their existing employee-centric processes.

Employees will now be enabled to complete these transactional tasks quickly via their mobile devices, with just a click of the button. After implementation, the waiting time for leave approvals have reduced by 94%, and the team is able to build and go live with integrations in 1 week.
