Reviewing the Basics of Robotic Process Automation

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a type of business process automation software that deploys robots to automate manual, repetitive tasks. RPA allows anyone to define a set of instructions for a robot or ‘bot’ to perform. RPA bots are capable of mimicking most human-computer interactions to complete a vast number of error-free tasks at high volume and speed. In simple terms, Robotic Process Automation frees employees to focus on more interesting and challenging human centered work.

RPA has proven its ability to deliver meaningful results and is leading to an era of Intelligent Automation through the integration of AI/ML. Some real-world examples and calculations of hours are saved with Infogain’s Intelligent Robotic Process Automation, including:

  • PO Processing: 1300 hours per year manual effort reduction
  • Report creation and distribution: 3800 + hours saved per year
  • Monthly revenue reconciliation process: Reduction of 800 hours per year
  • Foreign exchange rate adjustments: 80% reduction of manual efforts
  • Month end close: Reduction of the process from 6-7 days to 8 hours
  • Purchase requisition workflow: Yearly saving of 14,000 manual hours per year

RPA technology provides significant benefits for organizations, including:

  • Lower cost of operations with cost savings of 25-30%
  • Enhanced precision and improved productivity by up to 80%
  • Uninterrupted business flow with non-intrusive, disruption-free RPA integration and implementation
  • Automated processes that minimize manpower dependency
  • Accelerated business value creation
