What Can Robotic Processing Automation Do for Your Business?
By Eric Middleton

Could your business benefit from increased accuracy and speed of operations in day to day affairs? If so, properly implemented Robotic Process Automation (RPA) may be able to give you those benefits and drive your costs down. If you are unfamiliar with the term, RPA is the automation of repetitive, high volume manual processes using software that mimics human actions. How can your business benefit from RPA?

Noteworthy Benefits of RPA

There are several benefits associated with RPA in addition to lowered costs and increased efficiency/ accuracy:

  • Task completion around the clock rather than exclusively within business hours
  • Enhanced data quality
  • Improved customer service which can translate to increased customer satisfaction
  • Increased employee engagement
  • Rapid ROI (weeks or months instead of years)

Pairing these benefits with the speedy 30 to 90-day deployment that 1Rivet provides will allow your business to reap the benefits of RPA as soon as possible. Once the deployment is complete, businesses are able to autonomously process transactions, create dashboards, extract data from files and so much more.

Which Types of Businesses Benefit the Most From RPA

We have created a checklist of questions that businesses can use to assess their readiness for RPA. Does your business suffer from things such as:

  • Time intensive, repetitive daily tasks
  • Human error
  • Flawed data
  • Growing operational costs
  • Disengaged employees
  • Required double data entry

If you have answered yes to any of these, there is a good chance that RPA implementation can greatly benefit your business’ daily workflow. At 1Rivet, we have found that RPA is best for businesses that are highly transactional, have limited business rules, and feature repeatable time-consuming tasks. Such characteristics apply to several departments including customer service, finance, HR and many more. This versatility is why RPA is a great solution for so many businesses.
