RPA: Robotic Process Automation.
What it is and why you should implement it
Throughout the world technology advances at an increasingly fast rate, which is why estimates show that in the coming years up to 45% of work duties will be automated while most client interactions will be made with emergent technology.
This technological advance has always been referenced from books to sci-fi movies, fantasizing about automated systems and robots that would take care of ordinary chores making human life easier and more comfortable. Nowadays, this is becoming our reality as software development has evolved exponentially, which brings us to a trending topic: RPA.
¿What is Robotic Process Automation?
Robotic Process Automation or RPA being one of the most recent technological breakthroughs, far from physical hardware, it’s based in virtual systems designed to make processes and work tasks easier and more efficient. In other terms, it gathers all technology oriented to the use of software with the purpose of diminishing human interference, especially in monotonous assignments.
RPA’s fundamental benefit is the capacity that it carries to generate automatizations and accelerate data processing with the mixed use of the internet and state-of-the-art equipment. Furthermore, this development leads to the accomplishment of decreased cost production of processes whilst allowing companies to innovate with dexterity and promote digital advancements.
Benefits of RPA
Although RPA’s benefits are limitless, some of the most prominent ones are:
● Cost and time efficient, given that software systems can complete tasks faster than a human being.
● Margin of error is virtually zero as it’s meticulously designed for each task and process that the company may demand and requires no human intervention.
● Fast and instantaneous, as a result of an agile implementation, results are given with no delay.
● Augments productivity, granting more profits.
● Ability to be implemented with auxiliary technologies.
● Non-intrusive, as it is able to be executed without any disruption to any other system. Robots can be effortlessly connected to web applications without the need of in-person technical support.
Considering the aforementioned benefits, RPA is an ideal complement to any enterprise’s productivity, rentability and efficiency thanks to software automatization of systems and the ability of its customizability to manage any task that’s required.
¿Why should you innovate with RPA in your project?
Artificial Intelligence or AI, is the latest of what technology is able to bring to our world and it’s being implemented in everything that surrounds us, as AI is no longer a tendency but an essential tool that makes our lives ever so slightly easier with each and every laborious task that otherwise would take longer and more effort to perform. RPA ensures that you have the ability to study your project, create a plan to highlight and vastly improve your company by reducing the needed workforce to attain the same results.
Large companies in the world use RPA in many of their processes, many come from repetitive tasks such as answering questions, changing airline tickets, placing prices on products, among others.
Walmart, Deutsche Bank, AT&T, Vanguard, Ernst & Young, Walgreens, Anthem and American Express Global Business Travel are among the many enterprises adopting RPA.
