Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

by


Specialized computer programs are realized to standardize and automate repetitive business processes with the help of software bots that mimic human activities by interacting with applications exactly the way a human does. Imaginatively, there are no physical robots present in front of the computer, but the RPA is a software robot that virtually assists in accomplishing tedious tasks so that employees can focus on other interesting and revenue-generating activities for an enterprise. The biggest advantage of RPA is that its usage is not limited to specialized software personnel; even the lay individual can utilize it. Existing applications are interpreted by the solution, as the software bot captures the information to process a transaction, manipulate data, and communicate with other digital systems or to even trigger certain responses.

XCEL Corp builds RPAs especially for companies that deal with high-volume complex transactional processes to boost resource capabilities while saving both money and time. Synonymous to industrial robots entrenched within a manufacturing unit; the RPA is a software bot that is embedded into a business workflow to hasten deliveries, improve final product quality and to heighten productivity rates. We are well on the way to revolutionize the way we visualize routine business processes.

The Foundation of RPA

Even if a process involves multiple, complex systems, business professionals can easily configure the software robots to automate their repetitive functions to maintain communication across user interfaces and applications. It can actually impersonate the activities of a human being such as copying, pasting, logging into and out of applications, opening email attachments, form-filling processes and much more. RPA is an evolutionary solution that is markedly disparate from macros software technology or even screens scraping. Today, it is considered as one of the most important automation tools and a driver of digital transformation, on the way to create a futuristic work environment.

Benefits of RPA

XCEL Corp curates, cost-effective and user-friendly RPAs that are extremely advantageous and have captured the interest of many organizations across industrial sectors. Some of the biggest RPA benefits include:

Zero technical knowledge: Configure the software robot without having to learn programming skills, which are ideally technical barriers to other systems. Primarily, the RPA works on a code-free technology, enabling non-IT staff to use the bot to their benefit. Setup or record your own automated steps to build a process through a recorder feature.

Accuracy: Typos and mistakes can be a tedious impediment, requiring a range of rework. A software robot actually resolves this through accuracy and consistency.

Compliance: Any organization would like to meet all regulatory compliance standards. The software bot can follow every instruction that it has been configured to comply with. This way an audit trail history is also available for every task that is performed. Review the steps of a particular process performed by the bot and playback past actions to evaluate progress or to simply analyze tasks for better decision-making. XCEL Corp curates RPAs that strictly comply with existing rules and regulations.

Uninterrupted work: Another very important functionality, if we were to change our perspective from repetitiveness to tireless performance. The bots can work 24 / 7, unlike human employees that have to take time to rest. The RPAs are triggered to initiate business processes autonomously without the need for human intervention. Even if there was human intrusion it would only be to resolve any errors emitted by the system.

Traditional systems stay undisturbed: Generally, conventional automation would require disruption of existing systems and an extensive revamp of resources to integrate applications. But the RPA does not involve any disintegration of former systems. This is particularly useful for organizations that do not possess adequate resources to develop an in-depth integration with their applications or in cases where legacy systems do not have adequate APIs available immediately.

Enhanced employee experience: When employees are given more time away from redundant tasks, they are bound to utilize their talents better by engaging in more interesting work. The RPAs are highly efficient and can wean all manual tedious tasks away from the employees so that they can focus on strategized revenue-producing activities.

Productivity: With the efficiency of the RPA, process cycle times are faster when compared to manual performances. Tasks are completed sooner than anticipated.

The RPA is all set to bring additional value to future technological generations while advancing cognitive abilities. Furthermore, machine learning and artificial intelligence will only enable software bots to better interpret interfaces across platforms while allowing them to easily manipulate unstructured data and efficiently handle errors. The bots will be able to recognize patterns over a period of time, thus requiring less and less human intervention.

Relevant RPA processes

A highly versatile and scalable technology, the RPA can be applied to many different industrial processes and several departments. Processes that apply to the RPA software lie in areas where

  • Tasks are consistent and routine
  • High volume everyday jobs are involved
  • Any activity that is prone to manual errors
  • Limited human decision-making is needed
  • And finally, manual data entry or swivel chair work is a prerequisite

The RPA in all of the above cases and some more brings immediate value to core business processes such as payroll, new hire recruitment, an employee onboarding, and status changes for an employee, Accounts Receivables and Payables, data migration, invoicing, inventory management, standard report creations, and software installations.

Personal Assistance

While the RPA acts as an organizational process enhancer, it can be utilized as a personal productivity tool as well. Daily work opportunities can be identified by employees where the software bot can be applied. This way, the staff has access to a self-controlled automation tool that empowers them to minimize tedious work, immaterial of their technical background. This applies to workspaces especially where employees are often faced with increased workloads, and expectations are highly amplified. Time-consuming activities can be alleviated and uninteresting tasks can be sourced through the RPA.

XCEL Corp, through constructive RPAs, aims to bridge the gap between worker productivity and the goals of an organization. We ensure that our RPA solution contributes to your digital transformation journey and serves as an important tool for solving challenges involving automation. Today, the RPA is regarded as the most powerful, complementary technology that can increase productivity and even minimize costs.

Check with our experts to formulate high-level RPAs for your employees and organization and enable them to focus on their talents and work that matters to increase business productivity.
