Why automate business tasks?

With robotic process automation (RPA), you can automate your routine tasks quickly and cost effectively. RPA bots can easily integrate with your broader automation initiatives — such as process and decision automation, or data capture initiatives — to expand the value of your automation program.

  • Accelerate time to value. Create, test and deploy new automation schemes in hours, instead of days or months.
  • Reduce human error. Virtually eliminate all copy-and-paste mistakes that result from swivel-chair integration.
  • Increase throughput. Complete automated tasks in seconds or minutes, around the clock, to deliver higher value for your customers.

Orchestrate human tasks and bots
(Tasks + Workflow)

End-to-end processes typically include a series of several tasks, where multiple RPA bots can be used to automate specific repetitive human tasks within those processes. Using workflow automation with RPA enables you to orchestrate multiple bots and handle exceptions.

(Tasks + Decisions)

Combining robotic process automation (RPA) and decision automation helps your RPA bots more effectively handle tasks where business rules change frequently and avoid hard coding this logic into the bot. This can help your RPA bots manage tasks involving eligibility, compliance, pricing and tax decisions.

(Tasks + Capture)

As operational or transactional unstructured data comes into an organization, data capture can understand and be trained to transform it into structured data, then hand that data off to RPA bots to automatically process in a variety of applications and systems.
