How automation can take the load off valuers’ hands

Product | Open Box Automation Engine, also known as Rob Sparke

Cost | On request

Company | Open Box Software

Target | Commercial real estate professionals and accounting teams

Business Challenge | Public information is required for valuation reports and competitor analysis. This process can be tedious and time consuming.

Automation Solution | Relevant information based on pre-determined parameters is pulled from public websites and consolidated in a fraction of the time that it takes a human operator.


  1. Search parameters are defined
  2. Rob reads the parameters and performs a search online.
  3. Required information is captured in an Excel spreadsheet and comparison charts are generated.

With the pace of progress in technology getting faster each day, leaders are constantly looking for the next breakthrough that will improve their business and industry. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology has reached a level of robustness that is set to automate business processes and allow us to rethink the types of tasks we allocate to human beings

Outcomes | Our Automation Engine uses third-party applications the same way a human operator does, which means no complex back-end integrations and limited transformational change when rolling out a solution. We have trained it to use all the systems that are integral to running a successful real estate organisation. It never makes mistakes, never sleeps and never takes a break.

In an environment where we are expected to do more with less in a shorter space of time, our Automation Engine allows you to roll-out solutions faster in days and weeks as opposed to months and years and it ultimately costs less than traditional solutions, achieving ROI quicker and continuing to drive down costs long after launching.
