WORKING of RPA ?
RPA Robots are capable of mimicking many-if not all human user actions.
They log into applications, move files and folders, copy and paste data, fill in forms, extract structured and semi-structured data from documents, scrape browsers and much more.
What Processes are relevant to RPA ?
High-volume, business-rules-driven and repeatable processes qualify for automation.
“Any company that uses labour on a large scale for general knowledge process work, where people are performing high-volume, highly transactional process functions, will boost their capabilities and save money and time with robotic process Automation.”
Institute of Robotic Process Automation
HOW DOES RPA WORKS ?
Log into any application
Connect to system APIs
Copy and Paste Data
Move files and folders
Process structures/ semi-structured content from documents, PDFs, emails and forms
Open emails and attachments
Read and write to databases
Scrape data from the web
What are the business benefits of RPA ?
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the technology that allows anyone today to configure computer software, or a “Robot” to emulate and integrate the actions of a human interacting within digital systems to execute a business process. RPA Robots utilize the user interface to capture data and manipulate applications just like humans do. They interpret, trigger responses and communicate with other systems in order to perform on a vast variety of repetitive tasks. Only substantially better: a RPA Robot never sleeps and makes no mistakes.
How to deploy RPA ?
A purchase order process could have 600+ variants, based on industry, order
value, geography, if the initial order was rejected, price changes, and more. Furthermore,
many of these steps are handled by different roles and teams. The
more effort you invest in understand your current processes and its shortcoming,
the less errors your deployment will encounter.
In order to automate your processes, you need to understand what you actually want to automate.
Most enterprises have complex workflows for dealing with different situations, and training the software robots to understand these workflows is usually the most time consuming step.
Once you understood your processes yourself, you’ll have to teach your software robots to understand your processes too.
Different robots have different ways to capture this data, from drag and drop to simple coding.
Monitoring & Servicing
Once your robots are deployed, you’ll need to monitor them regularly to ensure that they are operating properly.
Are all the cases being processed as expected? What sort of improvements can you make? Are your business processes changing in the future?
