Ways that you can use Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
If you have not heard of Robotic Process Automation before, it is an automation process that organizations implement to reduce the hours spent on report generation, migrations or mergers, data entry, and maintenance.
It is also used to integrate clunky legacy systems with other formats. Not only to reduce the time taken, having standardized checkpoints in place, reduce the inevitable number of errors.
RPA is also a great way for an organization to deliver operational efficiency, time savings, and substantial cost reduction quickly.
Not to mention, it drives better accuracy, improved employee, and customer experience, and ensures regulatory and standards compliance by producing accurate results.
Who or what do you need to use RPA?
It is a misconception that RPA is solely meant to be used by IT professionals and programmers to automate the highly repetitive, rule-driven, analytical tasks, and processes.
The Nintex RPA software for instance is highly intuitive and has a simple drag and drop feature that allows anyone in the organization to start using an RPA software solution with minimal training.
As it is meant to be intuitive, if the user has a good understanding of the process itself, they can teach the software to emulate repetitive actions.
Building RPA is no longer restricted to code and can be done by clicks.
In what ways can you implement RPA?
There are three main ways you can do with RPA:
1. Maximize Existing Application
The first function is to use RPA to breathe a new life into your legacy solutions that you can’t reach with other forms of Integration.
Compared to other automation, replacing legacy solutions will take some time and you will need to have a strategic roadmap.
Thanks to the Nintex RPA feature, you can reduce time by easily connecting to your valuable data found in numerous locations across the enterprise, from spreadsheets and websites to legacy applications.
For example, RPA can be used to pull in data from other applications or kick off processes by feeding data to the desired destination without manual or repetitive work from your team.
2. Maximize Business Process
Besides maximizing your existing applications, if your business processes are a combination of simple tasks and tasks that require human intervention or judgment, you can combine RPA with other process automation tools like workflow and case management.
These tools can work together to automate where possible and deliver knowledge work directly to your team.
With Nintex Workflow, you can build an ultimate automation toolset by delegating tasks to an RPA bot that can interact with your applications, systems, and websites using the same screens as human workers.
Another great way to extend automation tools like workflow and case Management is to use RPA to interact with third-party applications websites or portals.
The robot can enter data that was previously gathered into a portal, download a report, or allow you to integrate where it could have been difficult in the past.
3. Maximize Your Team
Finally, RPA can also be used for System administration activities that are repetitive and take valuable knowledgeable staff away from more important activities.
For example, things like password reset. Using RPA to automate these activities especially for large organizations can add time back to your team’s day and minimize disruption.
To conclude the implementation and application of RPA and automation are not here to replace the people in your organization.
Instead, RPA is used to allow them to focus on activities that bring the most value to the organization.
