When you use RPA to handle tedious tasks, you can completely re-engineer your myriad business processes. Of course, every process requires tools of some sort, and RPA isn’t any different.
Companies may distinguish RPA from workflow automation or even BPA. But, as stated previously, it is our view that the terms “RPA” and “workflows” can be used interchangeably. In fact, there isn’t any reason why every workflow won’t be fully automated one day.
Without question, automation will transform every single job. According to McKinsey, 60% of all jobs will have 30% of their tasks automated. Already, many software platforms include automation or digital assistants within their solutions. Jobs are changing along with the ability to leverage AI and RPA.
For instance, Google Assistant can help with general busy work. Geekbot can be used to send a follow-up after a meeting, and Clara can schedule meetings on your behalf. Some RPA tools include workflow builders with drag-and-drop configuration, while others leverage code-less scenario management to improve both BPM and BPA.
The trend of automation is not going away. Nonetheless, employees and employers stand to benefit from finding the right solutions to improve their job-related tasks. When you can use RPA to automate various aspects of your job, then you can reclaim other parts of your day. Perhaps it may even lead to a four-day work week.
