The Power of Robotic Process Automation

RPA can partially or fully automate certain repetitive or rules-based activities that humans may perform in the workplace. In other words, RPA can eliminate some tedious, manual tasks that many employees dread and free them up to focus on higher-value or more engaging work.

It’s important to note that RPA doesn’t involve the use of mechanical robots like those you might find on a factory assembly line. Instead, it utilizes software-based robots (or “bots”) to complete specific tasks.

You’ll find varying definitions of RPA, but experts agree that RPA has the following core elements:

  • Using robotic applications to perform repetitive, high-volume tasks in a work environment.
  • Deploying computer vision (CV), machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) to execute tasks.
  • The employment of triggers or rules that initiate the action the robotic applications perform.

By deploying RPA, you can replace certain labor-intensive tasks, such as data entry or transaction processing. Additionally, RPA can handle some straightforward customer service tasks. In fact, many of the chatbots used on today’s websites are RPA tools that address simple queries, such as directing visitors to the correct web page to find information.

While RPA has focused primarily on structured datasets to date, combining RPA with artificial intelligence (AI) opens new possibilities to analyze and act on unstructured data. As RPA tools grow in sophistication, they can start to take on more complex tasks, such as analyzing sentiment to recommend actions to resolve customer issues.

This evolution is a game-changer. Without question, RPA can bring increasing productivity gains to organizations as RPA technology advances.


RPA is already transforming how organizations work, bringing new efficiencies every day. Some of the benefits your organization could gain with RPA include:

Improved Productivity

Many employees perform repetitive manual tasks as part of their jobs. Imagine how much more productive those team members—and your organization—could be by eliminating these mind-numbing tasks. RPA can eliminate significant manual work, ensuring necessary activities get done without burdening your team. Instead, your employees can focus on more engaging, productive work—serving customers, closing sales or developing innovative new products or services.

Reduced Errors

Let’s face it: Even the best employees make mistakes. Performing the same tedious work day after day only increases the possibility of human error. For example, if team members must copy data from one system to another every day, they’ll likely introduce some mistakes. Even a minor typo or two transposed numbers can create big issues with reporting, financial projections, billing or customer service. With RPA, you can eliminate those errors and see significant improvements in data accuracy and quality.

Higher Customer Satisfaction

Today’s customers have extremely high expectations. They’re used to receiving seamless service from customer experience leaders who have set a high bar. If you don’t meet their needs for efficiency and quality service, you risk losing them to competitors. With RPA, you can automate some online customer support functions to help people find the answers they need quickly. Plus, RPA can operate 24/7, so your customers can reach you anytime.

Reduced Costs

Not operating efficiently adds cost to your bottom line. Every time an employee makes a preventable error and needs to research to correct it, there’s a cost. Every call to your support team to resolve a question that’s easily answered online creates more cost. Hiring someone to perform tedious, repetitive manual data entry is yet another cost. These are just a few examples of the types of expenses you can reduce or eliminate with RPA.

Improved Compliance

Many industries must meet stringent regulatory mandates, which typically require detailed record-keeping and reporting. Any missteps in these processes can cause significant fines, increased regulatory scrutiny and harm to your reputation. If you rely on traditional, manual approaches, you may find that your records are full of preventable errors. However, deploying RPA can help you keep thorough, accurate and error-free records so that you can meet compliance mandates and any audits with confidence.

Reduced Coding

Organizations may recognize the powerful benefits of automated workflows but lack the technical expertise or time to develop them. With low-code RPA solutions, anyone on your team can create workflows that map to your business processes with ease. Your expert developers won’t have to spend hours or days writing and testing custom code. RPA solutions that offer intuitive, drag-and-drop capabilities simplify the workflow development process so that you can introduce new efficiencies quickly.
