Frequently Asked Questions
What is Robotic Process Automation?
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a technology that enables organizations to automate mundane, repetitive, rule-based processes using software programs that do not require human interaction. It can be applied to the various systems such as ERPs, workflows, and databases.
What is the difference between AutomationEdge’s RPA+ and RPA?
RPA+ is a smart solution which is essentially a collection of various technologies used to give you the most efficient solution when it comes to automating your processes. Unlike ETL, it has the capability to scale up easily, handle different UI level automation, rapid API / command line integrations, detailed Audit Logging, cognitive abilities like machine learning and NLP, self-service feature and a lot of ready target system adapters for superfast and easy integrations. ETL is simply just a small part of AutomationEdge’s RPA+ solution.
Will there be any modifications required in my current systems?
AutomationEdge RPA has unique architecture that enables us to seamlessly introduce automation in your current systems without making any changes in your existing systems.
Will our data be safe?
Yes, your data is 100% safe & secure and only your chosen people from your own organization have access to your data. Apart from this, your data is in an encrypted format when it is stored in databases as well as during transit between the server and your machine. Multiple security audits and reviews have been done to make sure of this.
What results can I expect after implementing RPA?
Productivity is most important driving factor behind any RPA implementation, though the results vary based on the type of implementation, processes involved and department. But as per research reports, you can expect below results from your RPA implementation:
– Reduced Cost : RPA can reduce costs by 25-50% since robots typically cost about one-third of an offshore full-time employee and one-fifth of an onshore full-time employee.
– Increased efficiency : Software robots work around the clock, 24/7/365.
– Consistent quality : Because RPA software robots act in a consistent manner, tasks that are automated will have an increased accuracy, allowing for substantial risk mitigation.
How many bots do you need in general?
Number of bots required cannot be a blanket number. It depends on various factors like the number of tasks involved in a process, the number of processes to be automated, the complexity of the process, expected throughput of the process, importance of the process in the organization, etc. Our team will study your process in its native environment and then guide you on this.
What is the implementation time?
The implementation time depends on the complexity of process being automation. Low complexity processes can be up and running in as less as 2 weeks’ time along with AutomationEdge deployment. Higher complexity process will take more time. We also give the option of phased implementations where we can automate larger processes for you in phases so that your organization can start reaping the benefits of automation sooner than later.
Which processes are the best candidates for robotic process automation?
Best candidates for RPA are data intensive, repetitive rules based procedures. Robots can operate 24/7. Hence, processes with continuous volume would benefit the most from automation.
