What is RPA (Robotic Process Automation) & How it can Benefit Your Business?
Robots are taking the place of humans in almost every industry like industrial robots are replacing humans from the factory floor. Likewise, RPA is replacing humans from the back offices.
In this blog, we will summarize everything you need to know about Robotic Process Automation, how it works and what are its benefits?
What is RPA?
Automating repetitive and rules-based processes by eliminating human intervention with the use of robots is called Robotic Process Automation. RPA technology mimics human activities & can perform various tasks like calculations, maintenance of records, transactions, handling queries to replace humans.
How RPA Works?
With RPA, you can automate your business operations by configuring automation workflows. You can consider RPA as a virtual employee, who works with your existing applications and carries out structured processes automatically. RPA performs all tasks like a normal employee and there is no need to make any changes to the existing systems.
Now let’s have a look at the best tools available in the market for RPA.
RPA tools are the platforms that you can configure to automate your tasks. There are many RPA tools available in the market, but UiPath, Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism are the top 3 tools, most of the companies are using to automate their processes.
Benefits of using RPA
There are many advantages of implementing RPA to automate mundane and error-prone tasks. Robotic Process Automation is a talk of the town these days due to its propitious outcomes like enhanced productivity, business efficiency and the most important is the increase in the revenue.
Here is the list of all the benefits of implementing RPA:
- Eliminate Errors – When an employee works on a repetitive task daily, he started feeling bored and makes mistakes or errors. But if we have RPA in place to automate that particular process, we can eliminate such errors. It helps us in achieving high business efficiency and also saves a lot of time for your team to focus on the tasks that are worthy of their time and effort.
- Cost Reduction – Every organization always tries to reduce their operational cost to increase revenue. With RPA, cost savings of nearly 30% can be achieved.
- Hassle-Free Implementation – The biggest advantage of RPA is that you can implement it without replacing your existing systems. You can leverage your existing systems with RPA like a real employee can. Moreover, you need little technical skills for the implementation of it.
To recapitulate it, we can say that AI & RPA helps to offload manual tasks and ensures freedom for employees from repetitive boring tasks. It can free up the workforce to focus on other innovative, strategic and revenue-generating activities.
