Robotic Process Automation and What it Can Do for You

Robotic Process Automation or RPA is the technology that automates day-to-day manual tasks and business processes by configuring computer software to emulate users’ interactions with the existing digital systems. 

Some examples of manual tasks that can be automated include: 

  • Application configuration 
  • Data entry 
  • Validation of client files 
  • Creation of test data 
  • Data loads 
  • Report generation 

Powered by machine learning and predictive capabilities, RPA solutions can generate meaningful data by feeding unstructured data to Cognitive Automation Platforms. Using clear rules and parameters, these labor-intensive, repetitive tasks can thus be automated to enhance productivity and efficiency and so cut costs and increase profits for entire organizations. 

With RPA, solutions can be quickly designed, implemented, and tested with relatively low investment on human capitals and expenditure. This not only reduces configuration effort and improves implementation timelines, but also improves the quality and productiveness of resources. 

According to Deloitte’s Global RPA survey 

“53% of organizations have already embarked on an RPA journey and this is expected to increase to 72% in the next two years. 78% of those who have already implemented RPA expect to significantly increase investment in RPA over the next three years” 

With RPA, all the routine activities that drain your organization’s time, manpower, and other resources can be easily automated and scaled and customized to different functions in your organization. From improving finance processes and business operations to helping HR identify the business rules required to onboard clients, the opportunities for RPA within organizations are countless.
