Slow processes affect organizations of all sizes. Many understand the benefits and importance of process improvement and they are attempting to move their organizations forward—but don’t know where to start. According to AIIM, 96% of business agree that Business Process Automation (BPA) improves business processes. The need for education, training and a better understanding of the technologies used to implement automation is very apparent.
Organizations that adopt the “work smarter not harder” rule fair better. Implementing Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can help them do just that. RPA can automate repetitive, rules-based tasks that are normally performed by a human through electronic user accounts called “bots.” To really move toward the future, however, you should be looking into Intelligent Automation (IA), which utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to assist business processes.
How can automation help you? BPA improves efficiency by automating tasks; it controls accuracy because bots don’t make data entry errors; and you’ll save money by reallocating humans to higher value activities. We expect to see more and more organizations turning to automation to streamline processes and save money in today’s competitive landscape.
