Every business will have a process that can be made better by automation. But before automating a process, consider the goals of that process. Often processes are added to compensate for a weakness in another part of the business. If the process needs to be rethought or redesigned, consider Value Stream Mapping (VSM) to help redefine the process. If the process is necessary, repetitive, and time consuming, then it is a candidate for RPA. A well-designed RPA can provide significant improvements to any business.

When defining the role of the RPA, you also redefine the role of the person. This person can then be assigned to work on more value-added tasks. Analyzing the business, managing through problems/issues, while focusing and building on the business strategy.
Make sure you have a well defined plan for how to achieve the process automation goals and objectives. Here is an example of the phases that go into your plan for RPA Implementation.
