Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

RPA: Redefining Workforce Efficiency

Repetitive, mind-numbing computer tasks are as common as the red, Swingline stapler. However, those days are behind us. Today, forward-thinking companies are adopting Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to liberate their employees from these mundane duties. RPA allows organizations to redirect their workforce towards higher-level, critical, and strategic activities, fostering innovation and efficiency in the workplace.

What is RPA?

RPA uses “software robots,” or “bots,” to automate repetitive, rule-based tasks usually performed by people. These tasks often involve transactions, and managing records. RPA can significantly increase efficiency, reduce errors, and lower operational costs by automating mundane tasks.

Key Tasks RPA Solves

  • Time-consuming tasks
  • Human errors
  • Critical thinking not requires
  • Hard to manage remotely
  • Quality & consistency required
  • Paper-based systems
  • Clearly established rules
  • Resource intensive

Common Uses for RPA

Calculating ROI

When it comes to calculating ROI for RPA, you have the option to do it yourself or enlist the expertise of the skilled team at Flexware.
Here’s a simplified guide to help you navigate the process:

  1. Identify the right pilot project: Choose repetitive or error-prone processes, ensuring processes are efficient before automation.
  2. Assess existing processes: Evaluate manual, repetitive, and high-volume tasks; document current issues and pain points.
  3. Determine improved processes: Use Value Stream Mapping (VSM) to document and reorganize processes, eliminating inefficiencies.
  4. Calculate benefits: 
    • Hard ROI: Quantifiable elements like cost reduction, improved process time, and system costs.
    • Soft ROI: Intangible benefits like customer satisfaction, employee morale, and decision-making visibility.
  5. Calculate overall ROI: Sum all ROI components, compare projects to prioritize investments.
  6. Decision: Once you’ve identified the right processes to automate, begin the work or rely on Flexware to implement your solution rapidly and cost effectively.
