RPA, or Robotic Process Automation helps business leaders to do more for less as it automates routine and redundant tasks, freeing the human workers to tackle the ones that require a higher level of cognitive abilities. A robot utilizes an interface to capture data, and manipulate applications just like humans to trigger responses and perform a variety of repetitive tasks. It’s easy to get confused between RPA and cognitive automation. While RPA automates tasks based on a set of rules or algorithm, and does not require understanding or insights, cognitive automation uses reasoning and decisions, and determines contexts for providing deeper insights. Cognitive automation is used for providing intellectual touch points, and deals with processes that are not algorithm-based, such as natural language understanding and processing.
RPA has found significant business applications across industries and business processes. Let’s understand it with an example, say invoicing. Invoicing process demands a lot of manual work, as the invoice is usually scanned or manually entered into the system. Moreover, the invoice can be in any format, like paper, PDF, image, or email. In the tedious task of invoicing, the data needs to be copied manually, leaving a plenty of scope for human errors. Besides, the process is time-consuming as well. RPA can be very helpful in this scenario, as it can update data to the respective systems without any human involvement. It can process the collection of data from the invoice, and send it to the target system, such as NetSuite, to be run at configured intervals. This way, RPA can save a lot of time, effort, and money in the invoice processing by a company.
Some of the key benefits of RPA:
Strategic management of IT operations
Managing IT infrastructure and operations becomes easy with RPA as teams have better visibility into their IT infrastructure and operations. This way, the staff gains the ability to strategically manage the IT resources of the organization for better output from different business processes.
RPA Development Company can help you execute a task in lesser duration compared to a human, as the software does not need a break, and never sleeps. RPA can perform more number of routine tasks in less time, as it does not require any human intervention. This way, a business’ efficiency is significantly improved with the use of RPA.
Many businesses, especially SMBs, find themselves at crossroads when they finally want to take it to the next level as they often lack the flexibility to deal with an increasing number of tasks and functions to scale up. Hence, despite an increase in the volume, they often collapse due to the lack of capacity building and flexibility. RPA developers can help a business scale up by supporting a number of business functions, and assisting in its expansion endeavors.
RPA helps in boosting the productivity of an organization by removing the labor cost of a full-time paying employee that the organization would have to hire. By automation tasks, RPA provides an opportunity for the company to redistribute its human worker resources so that they can be assigned the tasks that need more of their input, rather than routine tasks.
RPA gathers valuable data from the business processes it performs, such as work-volume patterns, cycle times, and exceptions. This data can be used to gain insights for making more informed decisions. Thanks to RPA’s capability of gathering differentiating data in separate fields, an organization can improve its decision-making on a macro and micro level, and streamline its business processes for optimum efficiency.
Enhanced customer service
Meeting customer demands is not easy, especially when your business grows and you have a shortage of manpower. Moreover, customer demands keep on fluctuating, making it harder for you to satisfy them. Customer dissatisfaction may make them migrate to your competitors. With its automated responses, RPA keeps your customers satisfied with routine queries, as you will need a proficient customer care executive only to resolve the issues that cannot be handled by automation.
