Think of RPA as an extension of your own workforce set up to perform tasks that you assign and control. It can dramatically reduce operating costs, scale on demand, and increase the agility of your business. With the right toolset, your business users can build and deploy each component of your digital workforce in a matter of weeks.
Most companies have plenty of repetitive processes that are drains on productivity and error-prone. These can involve entering data in spreadsheets, downloading data from a website (credit checks, background checks, invoices, etc.), or just entering the same information into multiple systems (entering budget information in accounting and project management software).
RPA allows you to create software robots to perform these data entry jobs faster and more accurately than ever before. Think of them as additional hands that free up your people to spend time on more important things like serving customers and growing the business.
