What do you think is the best way to improve productivity within your organization?
Do you imagine having an infinite set of employees, strategically placed at different corners of the world that you have to manually (sometimes in a very tedious manner) provide training to perform a certain task?
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is an intelligent software system commonly referred to as “bots”. RPA “bots” are capable of replicating the actions of an employee interacting with the user interface of their existing data sources and enterprise applications, e.g. Oracle, Microsoft, SAP, AS400, etc. They are capable of scraping data from web applications, websites, spreadsheets, etc. They can perform back-office workflows in Finance and Accounting, Human Resources, Supply Chain Management, and Project Management, to name a few.
In simple terms, a RPA is a functionally trained “robot” or automated employee capable of handling repetitive transactional business processes just like humans.
Productivity improvement continues to be an important key performance indicator (KPI) for any organization. Leaders are always on the lookout for ways to improve processes, minimize errors, reduce costs, and boost employee morale.
A software bot or Digital Worker can take care of repetitive, monotonous tasks and free you and your workers to focus on higher value-added tasks. Let’s look at three ways a bot can assist your organization.
RPA makes it possible for employers or employees who do not have a firm understanding of the technology behind the system, to still be able to reap the benefits from it. Robotic Process Automation allows you to assign manual and repetitive tasks to software that can keep repeating it without error or breaks, helping eliminate low-importance tactical jobs, so you can better concentrate on your high-value strategic jobs that actually contribute to your bottom-line.
As a Business Process Transformation company, we are seeing more RPA use where business process reengineering or application integration cannot be justified. RPA is becoming a viable and inexpensive alternative for application integration and automating third-party applications, administrative, or business processes.
RPA software tools have emerged as one of the biggest enablers for revolutionizing process efficiencies, increasing productivity, and reducing the cost of manually intensive efforts.
