RPA - A Definitive Guide To Robotic Process Automation

RPA: A Definitive Guide on the Most Common Challenges Faced By Your Organizations to Implement

 

What is RPA?

 

RPA is systematic automation to automate repetitive human tasks and processes without interventions.

RPA enables you to capture the mundane, repetitive human tasks and perform them automatically in the human absence and to avoid errors. This automation gets done by a bot and the software used to develop this bot is termed RPA software.

 

What are the Most Common Challenges Faced by the Organizations to Implement RPA?

 

The Crucial challenge in implementing RPA is identifying and discovering the right opportunities for automation.

Process discovery helps you identify the processes which are matured enough and Automation assessment makes sure you have chosen the correct process to adopt for the automation. Automating a process through RPA is purely based on the individual organization setup.

 

1. Identify & Track Manual Processes for Automation Through Process Discovery Tools.

 

Many Businesses struggle to determine all the processes and wherein the system automation can be done.

Most of the puzzle comes from the fact that many of them have questions like, are the processes in my organization stable and repetitive enough to be automated?

Process discovery tools help you capture and analyze these opportunities. However, the tool will only capture the data for a particular process and an experienced analyst will be able to interpret this captured data to decide the applicability.

 

2. Improving the TAT of Business Processes

 

Imagine your Market is growing with huge potential across the world. Changing customer psychographics is driving this demand.

To cater to this growing demand, your organization will be under pressure to automate your workflow and decrease the TAT to gain a competitive advantage.

Many business users are now looking to synchronize and standardize their processes to attain an increase in productivity.

 

3. Selecting an Automation Platform for Enterprise-Wide Adoption

 

There are many aspects to look at this, the most common aspect will be to evaluate Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), Ease of Implementation, Resources support from the implementation partners, Innovation, and frequency of updates from the technology provider.

 

Value Addition by Introducing RPA in the Organization

 

RPA, as a system has changed the game for those who have adopted it into their Organization. All the tasks which needed manual attention have become automated with rule-based outputs.

These value addition can be categorized as:

 

1. Reliable Systematic Resource

 

First and foremost, RPA assures reliability by taking into consideration the human behavioral work patterns and automating it. It is designed in such a way that after introducing the system all the functions are automatic.

 

2. Error-Free

 

When we rely on a system, we look for an error-free effortless system. It should have the capability to run meticulous tasks with ease.

As errors are bound to be made by human intrusion this system works its way through all the errors. It records patterns and simplifies the task for the future.

 

3. Less Human Intervention

 

Leaning towards automation makes less room for human intervention. Through all the automatic data capturing and representing in the RPA system, it’s become convenient for us to rely on automation to carry out all the required tasks.

 

4. Efficient and Effective

 

A good project implemented makes automation error-free in its process. A very rigorous process discovery assessment makes sure the RPA is effective.

 

Next Generation. What’s Next?

 

New technological upgrades in Artificial Intelligence & Machine learning is giving rise to new systems.

Many Leading businesses have adopted RPA by leveraging Operational excellence as an organizational philosophy for growth.

With the rise in maturity, the cost of implementation is coming down and the percentage of successful project deliveries is going up. Reporting and resilience are getting more evolved.
