What is Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

RPA enables companies to easily automate repetitive, redundant and mundane tasks in order to free up employees to perform higher value work. RPA is a rapidly growing form of business process automation (BPM) technology based on the notion of software robots or artificial intelligence (AI) workers. These workers can also be referred to as digital labor. These tools automate interactions with the GUI, and often do so by repeating a set of demonstration actions performed by a user.

How RPA Works?

RPA bots replicate the actions of humans interacting with user interfaces, without making changes to existing interfaces or making manual errors. This significantly increases the efficiency of the system to perform high volume work with zero margin for errors.

Software Robots are similar to physical robots
Physical Robots Software Robots
Perform repetitive physical tasks
Example:► Pick eight chocolates from the assembly line
► Assemble a finished box of chocolates
Perform repetitive software tasks
Example:► Log in to four different systems
Navigate legacy screens to retrieve data
► Use data to open a new account in the system of record
