RPA has been gaining ground in the world of business and IT, with advances in artificial intelligence that allow the platform to “learn” as it observes data elements and processing decisions.
Undertaking an RPA implementation in itself can benefit businesses by identifying inefficiencies in processes and workflow. As employees and management evaluate functions for robotic automation, issues like duplicate keying of data and wasteful operations can quickly rise to the surface.
The Institute for Robotic Process Automation (IRPA) estimates that, in the near future, RPA could save companies that implement these systems 20-40% in labor costs alone. Imagine a platform that recognizes and resolves problems quickly, automatically, and that is available 24/7.
RPA does not require revisions to business-critical legacy systems. This platform simplifies processes based on business rules and events, automating the time-consuming work formerly requiring human interaction. Gaps between multiple applications/systems can be accomplished through event-driven automation, rather than requiring multiple manual tasks.
Your organization is probably like most, with employees or departments performing redundant tasks. This often means handling thousands of transactions each day, making the tasks ideal candidates for RPA. Many of these processes do not require critical decision-making by the employees. At most they may require decisions based on standardized business rules that can easily be automated.
Learning more about RPA and how to successfully implement the platform can position your business for efficient and profitable operations now, and for years to come. Quite simply, RPA can change how work gets done in your business and allow you to:
RPA is not industry-specific. Every business from the largest enterprise to small and mid-size companies can benefit from robotic process automation to make their workforce more effective and improve the bottom line.
WorkSocial is introducing a series of courses dedicated to training both individuals and teams on RPA platforms.
