Robotic Process Automation FAQs
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a software technology that makes it easy to build, deploy, and manage software robots that mimic human actions interacting with digital systems and software.
Bots can do things like understand what’s on a screen, complete the right keystrokes, navigate systems, identify and extract data, and perform a wide range of defined actions- a perfect digital alternative for rule-based processes. It’s a great way to maintain the human feeling to business transactions whilst utilising the around-the-clock efficiency and reliability of automation.
We are seeing increasing deployments of RPA to eliminate tedious tasks, freeing corporate workers to focus on work of greater importance.
RPA (Robotic Process Automation) focuses on automating repetitive, rules-based tasks using software bots. It mimics human actions within digital systems. AI (Artificial Intelligence) is a broader concept that involves machines simulating human intelligence. It includes technologies like machine learning and natural language processing to enable cognitive abilities such as decision-making, understanding unstructured data, and adaptive learning. While RPA automates tasks, AI empowers systems to analyse data, make informed decisions, and perform tasks that require human-like intelligence.
No, RPA (Robotic Process Automation) and Intelligent Automation are not the same. RPA focuses on automating repetitive tasks, while Intelligent Automation combines RPA with advanced technologies like AI and ML to automate complex tasks that require cognitive abilities and data analysis.
The act of implementing RPA is a fast and straightforward process, relative to your business processes. RPA implementation can be summed up in three steps:
• Decide which processes need automation.
• Design your automation process.
• Define manual steps to the bot and deploy.
Implementation is the easy part of RPA. It’s the wider considerations that take time and influence the success of the implementation. RPA is a tool for creating cultural changes in an organisation. It unlocks new efficiencies, ways of working and how teams interact. It’s important to consider and account for how RPA will alter operations and culture. For example, will users be open to adopting and making full use of capabilities?
To maximise the chances of RPA success, it’s important to have the following three things on hand at all times:
• The right team: The right skill sets and openness to new ways of working.
• The right tools: Compatible programs bots can integrate with
• The right Partner: Help on hand from experts, should it be needed
The simple answer to this is to choose anything boring. Bots love boring, people don’t. This accounts for why we can see a human error or drops in productivity around repetitive, tedious processes. Instead of letting colleagues suffer, let bots automate anything hindering colleague satisfaction and let them move on to tasks of higher value.
Start by identifying processes that are repetitive, rule-based, and time-consuming. Look for processes with high transaction volumes, potential for error reduction, and significant cost savings. Prioritise processes that have a clear and measurable impact on operational efficiency, customer experience, or compliance. Analyse the complexity and feasibility of automation, considering factors like data availability, system compatibility, and the level of human intervention required. Engage stakeholders, gather their insights, and evaluate the potential return on investment (ROI). Ultimately, select processes that align with strategic business goals and offer the greatest value and impact when automated.
Implementing robotic process automation (RPA) can bring numerous benefits to businesses, but it is important to be aware of the potential challenges that can arise during the installation and deployment process. Here are some common challenges associated with RPA:
Process Complexity: RPA works best with well-defined, rules-based processes. Complex and unstructured processes may require significant effort to automate effectively. Analyzing and simplifying processes before automation is crucial.
