Robotic Process Automation

RPA 101

A Primer for Increased Productivity

It’s not R2D2

For the uninitiated, the “robot” part of robotic process automation (RPA) can be confusing. RPA does not employ physical robots like those used to build cars or star in science fiction movies. Rather, RPA uses software robots, more familiarly known as bots. RPA bots are computer-coded software with no arms, legs, or other physical presence.

Imitation is the highest form of flattery

RPA bots replicate transactional processes. What does that mean? Well, by mimicking the way humans interact with a computer or other digital device, software bots can automatically perform repetitive rules-based tasks to execute a business process. And they are on the job 24/7. That means you can cost-effectively increase throughput, improve process accuracy, and ensure compliance. See the many RPA benefits

Empower your staff

RPA reduces the amount of time your staff spends on mind-numbing, repetitive tasks and routine activities, which historically result in the highest number of errors. This frees up your employees to work on more important, mission-focused activities, such as analytics, project management, or interacting with the public. Communication and coordination between the robotic processing output and human capabilities foster success.

Discover the right opportunities

With the insight and guidance of the right partner, you can identify the best RPA opportunities and quickly and cost-effectively implement a solution. Bots can be used in a wide variety of use cases, but it’s best to focus first on applications that produce a rapid return on investment (ROI).

Grow organically

With the right RPA platform, it is easy to go from automating a few processes to enterprisewide adoption. This scalability means you can start small and add on later with no loss of investment. So if you’re ready to go, let’s build a bot.
