Many organizations are turning to Robotic Process Automation or RPA to improve productivity, customer satisfaction, and quality.
The top strategic priorities reported by a survey of executives are: 1) Developing analytics capabilities; 2) Increasing the overall level of automation, and 3) Focusing on process improvement.
By optimizing mundane and repetitive tasks, the positive impact can be seen in the organization’s bottom line and workflow.
Let’s look at several best practices to be used when implementing robotic process automation.
- When automating, it is important to fully understand the process completely.
- Initiate process documentation early and create and share workflows in document repositories.
- Focus on efficiency gain by including adoption automation.
- Use automation tools to simplify activities that your organization does daily.
- Focus on specific goals. Be clear on any automation project goals and deliverables with your team.
