RPA or Robotic Process Automation is a transforming technology and, sometimes, the answer to many enterprises’ most common problems. From low productivity to high operational costs, the automation of business processes offers solutions to all of these issues.
By definition, Robotic Process Automation uses software robots to enable communication between multiple IT systems. This connection allows them to capture and interpret each other’s data, as well as outputting information via tasks.
These tasks can be programmed through pre-defined business logic and established rules, to trigger responses and process transactions without any need for human input.
In a daily company’s routine, it means that RPA aims to improve the productivity of employees by automating all of the repetitive tasks and manual processes that usually take a lot of time and effort, and could easily be replaced by robot software.
If you’re wondering what type of business processes your company could automate, think about anything that involves a lot of data and highly repetitive work, like entering information into multiple systems or processes that rely entirely on data inputs, for example.
To help you out, we listed what kind of tasks can benefit from robotic process automation:
Robots software can handle much higher volumes than humans, so start there
Tasks that take up a lot of time should be fully or partially automated
Tasks with low variation scenarios and demand to be executed the exact same way.
Tasks that can be defined by programmable rules.
RPA also reduces the mistakes that usually comes from a lack of attention or human error.
Tasks that deal with extremely important issues like money, sensitive data and customer experience.
Robotic process automation can be used not only in technology-related areas but all over departments. Here are some examples of how RPA can improve an entire organization’s business process.
