What is Robotic Process Automation software?
RPA software automates repetitive or manual structured tasks. Employees usually do the jobs, but with RPA, these activities will be taken out of their hands by a software robot. The robotic software is a cost-efficient and reliable solution without any need for human actions.
Automatically pick up invoices from several supplier portals without human interference. Onboard employees without the need of human acting. Or automatically process customer complaints and e-mails to customers with useful information such as status updates. With Robotic automation, you will be able to automate and robotize many different processes within the organization.
Making use of Robotic Process Automation
Robotic Process Automation is beneficial to automate and optimize different processes within the organization. Most of the time, RPA is used to automate repetitive and manual tasks as data processing, launching and handling applications.
- Follow logical rules such as if and then
- Make calculations
- Extract data from documents
- Data input to forms
- Merging data from multiple sources
- Copy and paste data
- Extract and reformat data into reports or dashboards
Launch and handle applications
- Open and proces e-mails and save attachments
- Applications login and processing (including Citrix)
- Online website login, handling and extraction
- Automate file archiving
The benefits of Robotic Process Automation
The use of Robotic Process Automation knows a lot of efficiency and operational benefits.
The capacity and scalability of Robotic Process Automation know no limits. The role of the bots can be edit manually, and the number of bots is extendable to the organizations’ needs. Furthermore, the bots can run anytime, anywhere. The digital workforce is always ready to fulfill their tasks. Implement time-based triggers or task-based triggers to start the robotic processes; they will begin when the times right.
Repetitive and manual tasks done by an employee can be time-consuming. With robotic software, these time-consuming tasks can perform quicker. Therefore, saving time for employees and refocus highly skilled people in the organization. Besides the profit on time-consuming tasks, the quality of the processes will increase too. This because the flaw rate is much lower when RPA takes over the manual tasks. Besides, the software will provide recommendations to improve the processes, increasing the overall process quality.
The Return on Investment is most of the time reached within a year. They are creating not only time-based advantages but quick financial wins as well by reducing the cost of repetitive and manual processes. Let processes being executed faster, with fewer flaws and active feedback.
When you should consider Robotic Process Automation
Recognize the need for robotic automation.
Highly manual and repetitive tasks
Is there much manual work needed to complete the tasks? Perfect for high-frequency functions that are running on a daily or weekly basis. Robots can quickly take over these tasks when they have a manual and repetitive character.
Bots are partners to process a high transaction volume of standardized data. They operate a lot quicker than their human equivalent. Besides the quick processing of administrative tasks, robots do not have a nine-to-five mentality and can work 24 hours a day, without a break.
Rule based processes
Processes with clear instructions. Decision making based on rules which are standard and predictable.
Standard input and e-input types
The source of the data input should be standard and consistent, like Excel, e-mail, XML, Word, PDF, and more.
Mature and stable processes
Documented processes, which are steady and predictable.
Low exception rates
Processes with no or less variation, leading to different handling procedures.
