Have you heard about Robotic Process Automation? Robotic Process Automation – or RPA – is on its way and it’s revolutionising the day to day operations of businesses worldwide. Essentially, RPA uses specifically programmed software robots, or digital workers, to perform repetitive tasks, such as copying and pasting data, opening emails and their attachments, completing transactions, manipulating data, and triggering automated responses. Importantly for businesses across all sectors, these digital workers slip into existing workflows with ease to perform repetitive tasks with greater speed, accuracy and consistency than your human workforce. Impressively, they have what it takes to automate approximately 30% of tasks currently undertaken by most occupations! And that capacity is set to grow and grow… when enhanced with cognitive technologies like machine learning, speech recognition and natural language processing, digital workers have been known to take on more complex tasks. New Workers, New Opportunities With all of this capacity, it’s understandable that some are concerned about future employment for human workers who have traditionally performed regular, repetitive tasks. However, the reality is that businesses – and workers – simply need to start thinking differently. Once your staff or contractors are freed from repetitive tasks, like controlling inventory, analysing sales activity, closing off accounts, responding to customer enquiries, pulling down and compiling data from disparate sources etc, they’ll be able to take on more creative tasks. How can you add value to your existing offering? Where can you make savings in the process… what new markets are sitting out there, just waiting for you to tweak your product or service? The future of your business involves creative, strategic thinking that adds value to your current offering. By taking care of the mundane with digital robots, you and your team will be able to focus on innovating existing processes to reach new goals for growth and profitability.
