Robotic Process Automation (RPA) refers to the use of…

  • A preconfigured software instance,
  • That uses business rules and predefined work flows,
  • To complete the autonomous execution of a combination of…
    • Processes, activities, transactions, and tasks,
    • In one or more unrelated software systems,
    • To deliver a result or service with human exception management.

Robotic Process Automation is being used across most business sectors including finance, manufacturing, telecommunications and retail, in areas ranging from IT departments to human resources and accounting. The bots—some of which include artificial intelligence—perform tasks ranging from transferring information to disparate databases to compiling reports.

How is RPA different from other enterprise automation tools? In contrast to other, traditional IT solutions, RPA allows organizations to automate at a fraction of the cost and time previously encountered.

RPA, in most cases, allows companies to grow their business without the associated costs of hiring and training new employees.

RPA is non-intrusive in nature and leverages a company’s existing infrastructure without causing disruption to underlying systems, which would be difficult and costly to replace.

With RPA, cost efficiency and compliance are no longer an operating cost but a byproduct of the automation.
