The robots are coming and they are here to help

· 3 min read

Robotic Process Automation, or RPA for short, involves using robots to replace manual processes. It isn’t robots in factories, which is the blue collar work that is often what we think of when it comes to automation. This is automating repetitive and manual tasks in the white collar world, like receiving an invoice, extracting the data, and then entering that data into an accounting system.

The robots are coming

While self-driving cars and physical robots are poised to transform the world tomorrow, enterprises today are already enjoying the benefits of automating mission-critical functions like accounting, HR and customer support. RPA is relatively cheap, easy to deploy and can quickly produce business results by boosting productivity, increasing speed, improving regulatory compliance and data accuracy. It does this by replicating human actions, and it does it 24 hours a day, seven days a week at speeds and levels of reliability no human can match.

Despite increasing digital acceleration, many organisations have been left to rely upon legacy software systems for mission critical functions. The lack of available expertise and conflicting priorities is one such reason for legacy systems remaining common place. It is estimated there are only 21 million professional software developers. This leads to specific painpoints being your own focus. Having access to a low code / no code environment where you don't need to be an expert is what elevates a business forward.

Where does RPA fit in

The opportunity for RPA lies in industry-specific use cases in insurance, financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, telecommunications, retail, and the public sector. RPA can handle the previously painstaking work of hunting for information hidden in documents and enables users to build their own solution to a problem.

This is why Unmand has made it our mission to free you from the mundane and unlock your potential. Just because RPA bots do the boring stuff, that doesn't mean you can't be creative with them either. You can combine products together, using RPA with machine learning power data extraction or any with other technologies. You can create an RPA bot that uses data extraction to read and reply to emails. Our suite of automation products allow you to solve your current pain points, without having to engineer or be a machine learning specialist. Our automation platform allows you to build your end to end process, scale quickly and remain in control every step of the way.

A long term partner

Although RPA emphasizes instant results and short pay back periods, you should still think of RPA as a long-term partner for your enterprise. Humans coupled with robots allows your organisation to optimise what it does best. While your staff can focus on what they do best. If you are keen on exploring what a no-code development journey looks like, keep up to date with Unmand and get started today.
