Streamlining the Data Conversion Process Using RPA
By Eric Middleton

The best thing about Robotic Processing Automation (RPA) is the wide range of processes it can streamline. Since there is no one-size-fits-all model, 1Rivet can help companies build solutions from the ground up for any of their repetitive tasks. Streamlining data conversion processes is just one of the many ways that an RPA solution can optimize processes within a business. Let’s look at how it works and can help your company!

What is RPA?

RPA is the automation of repetitive, high volume manual processes using software that mimics human actions. Data conversion involves a lot of repetition, which makes it the perfect process for RPA implementation.

Without RPA, employees may need to complete double entry and data migration tasks manually. It can be a very time consuming and meticulous process, but a better, faster and affordable solution didn’t always exist. Our goal was to change that.

How Does it Work?

Once an RPA data conversion solution is in place, a robot will automatically log into the first system while copying all key data in the background. After all of the data is gathered and copied, the robot then logs into the second system. At that point, the copied data is automatically added to the second system. This process is repeated until all necessary records are accurately added. Once the process is completed, the robot doesn’t stop there. Your team will automatically be notified that the process is completed so you can do a check for accuracy and then move onto the next part of your day.

Check out our video demo outlining how our RPA solutions help businesses automate their data conversion processes.

Shifting Focus to What Matters

This process generally cuts migration time by 50%, allowing teams to focus on what really matters: adding value using unique skills. In essence, RPA allows robots to do jobs they are great at so that humans can focus on jobs that they are great at. This RPA solution is perfect for businesses that handle low volumes of data. Businesses that deal with massive amounts of data will likely be best off implementing a more traditional database and using ETL tools for data conversion.
