Find out how RPA can optimize your company’s activities
Robotic Process Automation-RPA is a solution for automating manual and repetitive processes and tasks through the use of software. This software simulates the activities performed by people.
Almost any task which is currently executed by users in the systems can be performed directly by the software/robot RPA. As an example, we can name the interaction between different systems, spreadsheets, and email submissions. Instead of the professional accessing one or another device through many clicks on the search for information, this navigation is automated.
Another example is to collect data from different sources (sites, systems, spreadsheets) and to consolidate these results in a base or spreadsheet. This information collected by the robot serves to feed a dashboard. Thus, the professional does not need to spend time searching for information, but rather using it in strategic actions to improve the business based on this consolidation of information.
An RPA uses the same graphical interface of the user and manages to capture all data from a system screen. It can also enter this data into another system, whether web, desktop or even mainframes.
What can RPA do for your company?
Using automation instead of manual processes reduces errors which may occur when professionals are responsible for performing certain actions. Filling out spreadsheets is an example. When RPA is used to perform this action, the probability of typing mistakes and data breach is reduced to zero. This means having more accurate information and ensuring reduction of economic impacts, as well as more quality at work.
To get an idea, our RPA projects bring, on average, 30% to 40% cost reduction. It brings efficiency to the virtual workforce which performs tasks 24/7.
3-ROBOTIC PROCESS AUTOMATION
The implementation of RPA with agile methodologies ensures that the focus is on fast delivery of value to the business.
Before adopting RPA, learn more about the advantages of these robots:
RPA increases efficiency and profitability in an effective, scalable and safe way. In some cases, without requiring the re-engineering of old processes or deleting crucial platforms for your company, promoting cost reduction.
Besides that, RPA promotes the use of human capital for performing analytical, more refined and value-added tasks. They are more motivational for people, and this automation eliminates manual mistakes and potential cases of fraud.
The software/service robot stays active all the time and not only on business hours, reducing the lead time of a task and the total time of a process.
The cost and implementation time are smaller than traditional automation, resulting in a fast return on investment.
