Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the technology that allows anyone today to configure computer software, or a" robot" to emulate and integrate the actions of a human interacting within digital systems to execute a business process. RPA robots can help to capture data manipulate applications just like humans do. They interpret applications for processing transaction, trigger responses and communicate with other systems in order to perform on a vast variety of repetitive tasks.
RPA robots are capable of mimicking many but not all human user actions. They can log into applications, move files and folders, copy and paste data, fill in forms, extract structured and semi structured data documents, scrape browser, and more.
The ROI of RPA is derived from multiple areas of impact. Immediate quantifiable benefits include dramatic error reduction and compliance and audit savings, but RPA unlocks even greater return on investment facilitating digital transformation, enabling incremental revenue opportunities, and freeing resources to focus on process improvements and value added work.
