Why You Should Automate Your Business Processes 


What would you do if you could save almost a full workday per week by automating repetitive tasks? 72% of workers claimed that they would use the extra time to focus on tasks that are more valuable to their organization[1] . As it becomes easier for software to learn and replicate tasks that humans perform, repetitive manual tasks will no longer add value.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can help turn repeatable, everyday efforts into an automated process, so you can focus on more important work.

How does RPA work?


RPA utilizes robots to complete tasks that would normally be performed manually by humans. RPA robots can:

  • Connect to system APIs
  • Copy and paste data
  • Extract and process data from documents, emails, and forms
  • Read and write databases
  • And much more

70% of workers think that the biggest opportunity for automation lies in reducing time wasted on repetitive work.[1] For an RPA process to work effectively, organizations first need to select what processes that want to automate and redesign them. Think about what routine processes your employees undertake and how they could be improved through automation.

For example, a European HR service provider was processing 2,500 sick leave requests per month for an average of four minutes per request. By implementing an RPA solution, the company was able reduce their processing time by 80% and achieve a ROI in just six months.[2]

By combining hyperautomation technology with redesigned operational processes, Gartner predicts that organizations will be able to lower their operating costs by 30% by the year 2024.[3]

What are the benefits to RPA?


With minimal upfront investment, any repeatable, high-volume, business-rules driven process can be automated, such as claims processing, patient registrations, and credit card applications. RPA is non-intrusive and can be implemented on an existing infrastructure, without disrupting underlying systems.  

Even though RPA involves robots, there is still some input required from humans. You decide what rules and regulations the robot must comply with. Because RPA robots are confined to a set of rules, it removes the risk of human error, and improves the accuracy of the task being performed. Plus – robots will constantly report on the progress, so you can have peace of mind knowing that everything is running as expected.

By using machine learning, the technology can also be trained to recognize specific business processes, recommend ways to improve, eliminate redundancies, and dynamically generate new processes in the future. Once you implement RPA robots, you’ll be able to scale to more processes, even enterprise wide.

Why spend time carrying out routine, repeatable tasks when you can automate them and save time and money in return? Learn more about how Data Core’s RPA solutions can streamline your business processes and get your organization back to focusing on valuable work.
