So, what is Robotic Process Automation? Simply put, it’s the use of computer programs in the form of software robots, to standardize and automate repeatable business processes.
Imagine having a robot sitting on a computer performing the same computer keystrokes and opening the same applications as humans do. While it doesn’t require physical robots, software robots tend to mimic human activities via working with applications the same way a normal person does.
With robotic process automation, bots can complete repetitive tasks, which frees up the employees time to work on more revenue-generating tasks for the company. What makes it interesting is that non-technical employees will have the tools needed to make their own software robots that will solve their individual automation challenges.
Artificial Intelligence is the area of machine learning where intelligent machines operate as humans. Here are some common activities:
Artificial Intelligence can be broken down into two components:
RPA is governed by structural inputs and business logic. Their main goal is to automate the business process and work complementary with the employees. Artificial Intelligence is a form of technology used to replace human labor. Combining both RPA and artificial intelligence can create a fully autonomous process.
For instance, RPA software can be used to scan bills and place them in accounting software. With AI, it can automatically detect and sort the bills in the specified order and let bots use it. Artificial Continuum is when Artificial Intelligence and RPA are used together.
Society uses RPA to help organizations grow into a digital workplace and solve automation challenges. Beyond everyday automation tasks, RPA helps the team become more efficient at handling one-off projects.
Robotic Process Automation helps increase productivity and reduce costs. For instance, having a bot work 8 hours a day, save the time and hassle of finding an employee. Thus, RPA has allowed businesses to work faster and produce better results.
