Create Your Own Virtual Assistant with RPA

By Amy Grendus on April 5, 2019

Have you ever had so much to do that you wished you could clone yourself to get caught up?  Effectively, this is now possible with Robotic Process Automation (RPA).

What is RPA?

RPA systems develop an action list by watching the user perform tasks in the application’s graphical user interface (GUI), and then perform the automation by repeating those tasks directly in the GUI. This means that any repetitive task that you perform can be done without your input – in essence you can be cloned into a bot that will get your work done.

What Does RPA Mean for You?

There are many advantages to enabling RPA in your business. Firstly, and perhaps most obviously, it decreases error – tasks are performed consistently and without human errors that are nearly unavoidable, particularly in repetitive manual tasks.

Secondly, RPA decreases the time taken to complete tasks.  Even at the same speed as a human, RPA can work 24 hours a day making it at minimum three times more efficient than a human.  On top of that, humans cannot match the speed at which RPA can process data and perform tasks.

Consistency is another key advantage of RPA.  Employees performing a task might all perform a task slightly differently, but still be performing it correctly.  For example, data may be entered using a full name by one person, while another might use an abbreviation .  This discrepancy may later create challenges in reporting. This simple example demonstrates the advantages of using RPA to create consistency.

RPA is also great for handling compliance and regulations. Sensitive data can be processed without the need for human interaction avoiding any confidentiality issues.

Image the time you’d get back if you could eliminate repetitive tasks from your day.  You and your staff would be free to focus on strategic initiatives, creative tasks, and customer service.  Think of RPA as a virtual assistant that performs all the work you don’t want to do, with speed and accuracy you could never achieve.
