What is Intelligent Automation?
Robotic Process Automation (RPA), or Intelligent Automation, is a way of improving data collection, data processing, stock purchasing or customer queries. It can be used to deliver enhanced customer satisfaction whether that be through improved clinical pathways in healthcare, or a quicker resolution time in contact centres. RPA allows the user or organisation to script a process to allow a Bot to complete the process a human would do, freeing up time to do other tasks.
RPA isn’t just for IT Teams
Initially, because RPA can involve AI, the Information Technology (IT) team will be the department looking at implementing the strategy. But, once the project is rolled out, its benefits and influence most certainly go far beyond IT. It makes sense to consult and involve individual department heads from the start. In most cases, we find that the value of automation has a larger return on investment outside of the IT function.
Processes such as starters and leavers, invoice processing, screening processes, escalation management, compliance reporting, refunds and returns. All of these and more can be automated to enable your organisation to become more operationally efficient, scalable and less prone to human error.
What to Automate
The simplest and most universally applicable automation use-cases (where you ought to focus first) are those which are:
- Highly repetitive (and hence monotonous for employees)
- High volume
- Gathering data from disparate platforms and systems
- Low variance
- Highly rule-based (i.e., there are very few options for deviation)
- Mature and stable processes which the organisation has been carrying out for a long time
