Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the technology that allows computer software, or a “robot” to emulate and integrate the actions of an employee interacting within enterprise systems to execute business processes. RPA robots utilize the same user interface to capture data and manipulate applications just like employees do. They interpret data, trigger responses, and communicate with other systems to perform on a wide variety of repetitive tasks - only better since an RPA software robot never sleeps, never argues, and never makes mistakes.

RPA Features and Benefits

Reduced Cost
One of the biggest advantages of robotic process automation is the immediate and considerable reduction in the cost of performing the tasks of essential business processes. Automated work is faster and does not have time constraints and can run round-the-clock. Less human effort is required to achieve greater business output, which results in a better bottom line.
Better Quality and Accuracy
Even the most careful employee makes mistakes on occasion. Those errors multiplied by the number of people you have performing routine tasks for your company reduces quality and accuracy. RPA performs error-free work. This increase in quality results in higher satisfaction rates, which is good for your bottom line.
Fast Task Time
How long does it take an employee to perform a given task, such as completing a web form or reading a spreadsheet? Even if it is only a few minutes, a robot could reduce the time down to just a few seconds. Combine dozens of tasks and several employees month over month, the savings add up.
Employee Empowerment
Most robotic process automation does not require any special technical skills and is an ideal application for the end-user. Employees can deploy robots to perform certain tasks without having to enlist the help of someone from IT. This ability enables the end-user to get their jobs done more efficiently and effectively. This empowerment also reduces frustration with IT that is all too real in most organizations. Meanwhile, it frees up IT to focus on more critical tasks and projects.
Simplicity and Flexibility
RPA does not require coding or writing scripts to automating tasks and workflows. Complex processes can be transferred from an employee to a machine with little effort. The faster these tasks and workflows can be automated, the sooner your organization will begin receiving the benefits.
Better Governance
There is a temptation to outsource so-called busy work to external third parties. Indeed this is the policy in some organizations. The inherent risk of this outsourcing is unknown or ignored. Using RPA can provide a better solution is to keep the work in-house, and the business maintains maximum possession, control, and visibility. This control is increasingly important in today's worldwide regulatory environments.
Business Intelligence
The past can help your business leaders make better decisions for the future. RPA offers the ability to gather, organize, track, analyze, report on, and store valuable data. The utilization of that data in future decisions will improve on current operations, address and correct issues in a timelier manner, accurately forecast, and develop best practices.

No, RPA is not Magic 

Automating a bad business process will result in a bad automated process.

RPA Checklist

Identify
What processes have high error rates? Have significant rekeying? Are highly repetitive? Is there a benefit from speed?
Validate
The digital data. The maturity and stability of the systems. The standardization of the tasks;
Quantify
The complexity of the task. The frequency of the task. The impact of the error rate. The opportunities from increased speed.
Prioritize
The implementation complexity, Any viable alternative, ROI and Cost Avoidance
