What Are the Benefits of RPA?
RPA delivers a 24/7 workforce that operates faster and more accurately than humans at repetitive and easily defined tasks. Having a programmer update an application to implement some business processes or rules is expensive and time-consuming. RPA is a shortcut technology that lets businesses quickly define and deploy automation without modifying applications.
Where Does RPA Fit Best?
RPA delivers quickly in environments where many disconnected applications are needed to support a process and where human operators act as the glue to bring things together. Any data entry operation that is repetitive and requires a very low level of judgement is an excellent candidate for RPA.
Why Do Some RPA Projects Fail?
RPA does not require re-engineering and refactoring business processes, but it doesn’t fit well into every process. Before starting, ask how a specific process can be simplified and improved and how it can be optimized when a robot will be doing most of the work.
