What is Robotic Process Automation (RPA)?

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is an innovative software technology that allows you to automate repetitive business processes. RPA software consists of virtual robots that mimick and augment the actions of your employees in digital systems. Like your employees, RPA robots log into applications, navigate through user interfaces, move files, extract, copy and paste data and make calculations. With RPA, you can essentially automate tasks in every application that your employees use: SAP, Excel, CRM, web browsers, Citrix, etc. RPA robots typically perform a wide range of high-volume, repetitive tasks such as searching records, filling out forms and generating reports. RPA offers your company the ability to change its processes quite quickly, with limited upfront investments.

 

Value of RPA for your company

Robotic Process Automation generates value for your company in the following ways:

Employee Job Satisfaction

RPA relieves your employees of the dull and repetitive aspects of their job. They will be able to focus on serving your customers and adding value for your business.

    Customer Satisfaction

    RPA ensures that your business processes will be faster and more effective, resulting in more satisfied customers and growth for your business.

    Return on Investment

    RPA has limited upfront investment and RPA robots are able to perform the work of several employees at a much lower cost.

    Compliance & Reporting

    RPA robots perform business processes in accordance with existing regulations and standards, without mistakes.

      Smooth Implementation

      RPA is non-intrusive and quite straightforward to implement. It can be integrated in existing IT infrastructure without disruption to underlying systems.

      Ability to scale and manage

      RPA software can be scaled to add robots and processes. The best RPA platforms allow you to easily monitor and orchestrate your digital workforce

       

      Applications of RPA
