Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is all about achieving the right blend of human processing and automation. It offers traditional companies a pathway to digital transformation. Because it works at the user level, RPA provides companies a way to automate critical business processes without ripping and replacing very costly legacy systems that support them.
RPA can also be used by many business units including Manufacturing, Finance, Human Resources, Supply Chain and Distribution.
Done right, RPA not only saves companies time and money, but also frees up emplyees to focus on higher valuer work. According to some analysts, first year returns on invesment for RPA implementations can be in the double or even triple digits.
RPA is fast, cheap and scalable. According to a Gartner 2019 poll, around 80% of finance leaders have implemented RPA or are planning to implement. RPA technology usually costs one-third the amount of an offshore employee and one-fifth of an onshore employee.
