RPA Overview

Robotic Process Automation


Automate Manual Processes with Robotic Process Automation

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is more than a buzzword. It’s a technology that’s transforming the way organizations collect, review and input data. Simply put, RPA was created to automate business processes. Its backbone is a software configuration, or “Digital Worker,” that is programmed to gather and process data without human intervention. Instead, digital workers simulate – and automate – your organization’s most repetitive and remedial tasks, instantly improving productivity, eliminating errors and freeing your people to focus on more important, knowledge-based work.

The beauty of RPA is that it can be deployed for virtually any business activity that involves users, data and systems—everything from websites and portals to enterprise applications, legacy systems and popular desktop applications like Excel. Because it doesn’t rely on complex coding or APIs, your first robot can be created and deployed in a matter of weeks, not months.

Make the Most Out of Your Time

Another important thing to note about an RPA digital worker is that it can work around the clock. When the rest of your company heads home for the day, your digital worker can stay running 24/7 to accomplish tasks without the risk of error — and minutes matter when it comes to efficiency. It may take only a few minutes for an employee to log in and out of multiple systems each day, but a few minutes each day adds up to hours and hours each year – for a single employee. Couldn’t this time be better spent providing personalized service to your customers, clients or constituents or making strategic decisions that only a human can make?

Can Your Organization Use RPA?

The answer: yes! RPA can be scaled and used for almost any kind of repetitive task. It has been used by organizations in almost every area, including:

  • Banking
  • Debt Buying / Loan Servicing
  • Human Resources
  • Insurance
  • Healthcare
  • Transportation and Logistics
  • IT
  • Manufacturing
  • & More
