What is Robotic Process Automation?

RPA is performed by software “robots”. This is nothing but automating any large scale repetitive tasks being performed by humans. Such robots can be used to do workflow processes, business processes, infrastructure processes, back office transactional processes and many such functions which are labor intensive and error prone.

What are the benefits of RPA?

It helps improve 10x the productivity, reduces the cost and increases the accuracy. It helps to monitor the processes much better. Humans can get tired by repeatedly doing the same mundane tasks. Software robots help in maintaining business continuity as robots do not get tired. It increases the scalability as well. There is no human turnover which means there is no requirement of training.
