Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is an application of technology, governed by business logic and structured inputs, aimed at automating business processes. Using RPA tools, a company can configure software, or a “robot,” to capture and interpret applications for processing a transaction, manipulating data, triggering responses, and communicating with other digital systems. RPA scenarios range from something as simple as generating an automatic response to an email to deploying thousands of bots, each programmed to automate jobs in an ERP system . Software robots are easy to train and they integrate seamlessly into any system. Multiply them, and instantly deploy more as you go.
Robotic Process Automation has a positive snowball impact on company processes and performance. RPA provides measurable market results right out of the gate—think cost reductions, better precision, ease of delivery—then proceeds to add value as it builds up steam and expands through the enterprise. RPA enhances market benefits such as customer loyalty and enables competitive advantages by freeing employees to do what they do best—solving challenges, enhancing procedures, performing research and other value-added work—resulting in improved employee participation and new sales opportunities.
