Robotic Process Automation
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is how the next generation will work. Leave repetitive and monotonous jobs to the machines, and free up the enormous potential of your human employees for making innovations and meeting the challenges of the future. With the help of robotics, it is possible to automate as much as 70 to 80 percent of manual workloads, which makes the enormous amount of brainpower of your staff available to bring your company the best possible benefit. Sounds good, right?
How RPA can be utilized?
Meanwhile, your faithful robot servants can, amongst other things, search for information from various sources, combine the data collected, and send the resulting reports and summaries on to the pre-selected destination. In addition to giving you an extra pair of automated hands, RPA also opens up new perspectives on the core processes of your business operations, and on the human role in modern work communities.
RPA can help organizations in many ways, such as:
- Automation of manual data-entry processes for data from different sources
- Automatically sorting and filtering tasks based on priority, then forwarding them for manual processing
- Improvement of systems that lack the functions required
- Integration between different systems
- Standardization of communications and correspondence (emails, messages, etc.)
- Automation of manual data inspection and calculations
An office robot should blend in to your company's and work environment's processes in a way that it actually helps with the workload and achieving results. You will get the most value out of your new robot friend by assigning to it processes that are well documented, stable and long-running, and have a well-determined cost level. The robot can be trained to use multiple data systems such as ERP, CRM, data storages or for example accounting systems. The service pays for itself quickly, on average in about 6 to 9 months.
