The integration of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) within your business brings remarkable benefits, promoting productivity and minimizing operational costs.
RPA or robotic process automation streamlines business processes, thereby liberating employee time for more creative thinking and important activities. Automation is the mainstream technology that plays a key role in the empowerment of today’s businesses.
Before proceeding further, it would be good to have some knowledge about RPA.
What is Robotic Process Automation (RPA)?
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a technology that uses programmed robots to automate tedious jobs within business. Software robots are programmed to imitate human actions such as data entry, responding to customer queries, invoice processing, social media management and more.
When RPA is integrated into your business environment, automation of the day-to-day activities in various business processes becomes possible. This significantly reduces employee’s effort in doing these tasks and provides them with time to focus on other crucial tasks, improving overall business efficiency.
RPA Vs. Artificial Intelligence
No wonder if the terms “automation” and “artificial intelligence” cause confusion.
RPA (Robotic Process Automation) and Artificial Intelligence may sound similar, but they are different concepts.
Automation is clear; i.e., to automate things.
Artificial Intelligence is akin to human intelligence but to be used in computer systems to execute tasks that need human intelligence. For example; problem-solving, natural language understanding, speech recognition, decision making and so.
RPA follows user-defined rules to automate repetitive tasks.
AI uses machine learning to recognize data patterns, decision-making and forecasting.
