What is robotic process automation (RPA)?
Robotic process automation (RPA) is technology that cuts down employees’ workloads by automating repetitive, high-volume steps in processes. Software robots, or ‘bots’ emulate the actions of human workers to execute rote tasks within applications via their UI. When RPA software handles this manual work, employees can devote their time and skills to more rewarding and valuable activities.
How RPA works
Robotic process automation is principally designed to automate repetitive analytical tasks and processes. This is accomplished by programming a desktop RPA interface that you can “teach” to mimic clicks and keystrokes to replicate a human typing information into various fields, access systems, compile information in spreadsheets, or transfer data between disparate systems.
Robotic process automation can be applied to high-volume, business rules-driven, repetitive processes across your organization.
Save time and costs
Improve productivity, speed up results, and save money by investing fewer working hours.
Customer and employee satisfaction
Fulfill requests in a timely manner and reduce employees’ manual workload.
By eliminating human error, RPA increases data integrity and makes every analytical activity more impactful.

The honest truth about robotic process automation
The market hype around RPA is warranted, but it is often sold as a one-stop solution for all process challenges when in reality, traditional RPA software is limited. It can be expensive and time-consuming to deploy, and inflexible when processes require human interaction.
To solve these digital transformation roadblocks, it’s important to tailor your automation toolset to your organization’s needs.
"One example is a solution that required at least 20 man hours of work a week, gaining approvals and tracking activity of a process, by utilizing the functionality of this platform we were able to take that down to about 15 minutes of man hours needed to complete this activity all the while allowing the business to follow and audit activity's while in process."
"I have noticed less WorkFlow bottlenecks; This improves efficiency, controls expenditure of time, money, resources and drives process improvements."
