Automate Repetitive Tasks with Robotic Process Automation

Learn how RPA Technology is Bringing Intelligent Process Automation to Work


What is Robotic Process Automation?

Robotic process automation (RPA) is a form of software used to automate repetitive, rule-based tasks – like moving files and folders or extracting data from documents. Rather than leave those tasks to human employees, RPA bots can perform them on demand, in a fraction of the time it might otherwise take.

They are a tool that enables organisations to create efficiencies in their operations through intelligent automation. They’re simple to set up and work on any platform.

What are the Benefits of Robotic Process Automation?

  • Process cycles times are much faster compared to manual approaches
  • Bots are available 24/7, without interruption
  • Routine tasks are performed the same way every time
  • Bots follow regulatory compliance rules and provide an audit trail history
  • Bots don’t make human errors, like typos
  • Underlying legacy system are unaffected, reducing the burden on IT
  • Workers are free to work on higher-value, more fulfilling tasks

Time Saving of 60% with RPA Software

With 15,000 incoming invoices per year, the manual process of handling invoices had become too great – a challenge for the Dutch Mechan Groep, who supply world-leading brands in the tractor and agricultural equipment sector. The company was faced either with employing more resources to handle routine invoice management or with transferring operation to software robots to automate and streamline the task. Mechan Groep decided to implement it.capture from NTT DATA Business Solutions, which is based on robot software and artificial intelligence. It saved 60% of the time they used to spend on creating invoices.

I am simply crazy about this robot solution. It digitalises our order process, reduces the number of key errors, and in the end it releases resources that we can use to optimise our customer service instead.

Robotic Process Automation Examples

RPA software is flexible and can be applied to all sorts of business processes to achieve a number of different goals. Here are a few specific examples of what RPA bots can do for you:

  • Launch various applications and log in automatically
  • Open emails and attachments
  • Copy and paste data and move files and folders
  • Process data by following logical rules or making calculations
  • Extract data from documents, fill out forms, merge data from multiple sources
  • Extract and reformat data into reports or dashboards
  • Augment information by scraping data from the web, including social media
  • Integrate with enterprise tools by connecting to system API’s or reading and writing to databases

What is Cognitive RPA?

More advanced RPA software, sometimes referred to as ‘cognitive RPA’ technology, adds powerful AI capabilities to RPA bots. With text analytics and machine learning, for example, these bots can read and draw conclusions from unstructured data, like an email that might even have misspellings. They can then automatically insert the relative information from that email into a different document or a structured form. But that’s just one example, RPA bots of all kinds have many use cases. When Artificial Intelligence is involved, they can be made to learn, improve, and become more efficient as they carry out their tasks.
