What’s a clear sign a company could use RPA? You Know a Company Could Really Use Robotic Process Automation When…

My Thoughts:

You Know a Company Could Really Use Robotic Process Automation When…

  • ..the workforce is involved in Mundane Monotonous Manual intensive tasks
  • ..a rhythmic Keystrokes pattern on the back-office/front-office floor makes more noise (comparable to an industrial manufacturing unit)
  • ..the agility in Customer Experience is negated by the sluggish back-office operations driven my manual hand-off
  • ..cost & priority of modernization or digitalization of every ancestral/legacy system is not the need of the hour
  • ..a Band-Aid solution like RPA is enough to heal the gaping wounds of the heterogeneous & messy heritage application landscape
  • ..reduced labor expenses, improved efficiency, reduced cycle time & importantly overcoming labor fatigue/human error (in scenarios involving routine activities) are the business KPIs
  • ..scaling labor for onboarding & training has an increased TAT (with RPA it is easy to multiply the bot workforce)
  • ..there is a demand to convert the heavyweight head-down workforce (involved in routine assembly-line tasks) to knowledgeable/ intelligent workforce
  • ..every discrete application in the enterprise landscape works in silos (with no defined integration) and have their individual priorities/transformation roadmap but a unanimous business objective to achieve “automation

Typical head-down workforce activities in a scenario like a Customer Onboarding are:

  • scanning paper forms to digitize it
  • ‎manual rekeying of data (data entry)
  • ‎4-eye check (reviewer to confirm, data entry is flawless)
  • ‎manual hand-off of tasks with follow-ups
  • ‎manual classification of documents and bucketing it
  • ‎toggling across multiple screens/apps to copy and paste data (or fetch/compare info) – involving no traceability/audit trail

What’s a clear sign a company could use RPA? What’s your take?

Happy Learning!! 🙂
