Remember the days when you used a digital calculator, perhaps in maybe your maths class? Yeah, it made it so much easier for you to get answers quickly. Calculators undoubtedly helped you solve complex mathematical problems which previously required a lot of time. Essentially automating the usage of a calculator that requires zero human intervention, is what RPA does.
So what exactly is RPA?
Robotic process automation is the use of software with artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities to handle high volume repeated tasks that previously required humans. Now some of these tasks include addressing queries, making calculations, maintaining records or even making transactions. So why is RPA gaining popularity so rapidly and why do companies and techies have RPA perspectives?
Here Are 7 Reasons Why You Need RPA
- Speedy implementation. Settling on a data entry bot strategy is a simple process. A new RPA software system may be implemented considerably more quickly than an employee can be trained. In a matter of days, you can have software robots working to input data. If you were looking to add a human worker to your team, you’d have to spend time reviewing applications, holding interviews, making a hiring decision, and then training them.
2. Bots don’t quit! With RPA you don’t have to worry about employees quitting or dealing with a turnover. Bots don’t care how hard they’re working or how boring their job is or how repeatedly they’re doing the same tasks. Yes it would be ironic if the bots got tired. Software bots can work all the time 24 hours a day every single day of the year at 100% capacity. RPA doesn’t take holidays, it doesn’t have sick days and of course they do not have unproductive days at all. What a relief to have someone who never retires or decides it’s time to move to a different job!
