Grand View Research estimates that the current global market for RPA is worth $125.2 million, which it expects to grow to $8.75 billion by 2024.
Undoubtedly the adoption of Robotic process automation (RPA) technology is on the rise in its ability to deliver quick ROI and enhanced control of the operations. Further, when combined with traditional business solutions, it can accelerate digital transformation by allowing organizations to visualize and monitor end-to-end business processes that lay the foundation for continuous process improvement. This platform can then serve as the base from which an enterprise transformation can be delivered.
But RPA software adoption represents a pivot from people to a software-based model. This is a fundamental shift in the approach of business operations. As a business leader, why is this pivot so important? What is the business value that can be attained? Find the answers with the below mentioned top 4 benefits of robotic process automation technology.
1. Complements the speed of business innovation
RPA is a rapid solution; easy to build and quick to implement compared to traditional solutions. The interfaces are intuitive and don’t require highly skilled resources. Instead of replacing existing systems, RPA solutions link together all the applications used in the current environment, making it non-disruptive and quickly integrating it into the existing ecosystem.
Business value: Speed to market in the competitive age
Benefits: Easy to implement. Highly cost-effective. Saves time and resources
2. Enables enhanced compliance
Companies that operate in highly-regulated environments are affected the most by the adoption of technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and RPA. Many companies have started integrating these technologies into their digital transformation platforms. This demonstrates how the rise in the adoption of these technologies is bringing in immense benefits in terms of improved compliance:
Business value: Compliance with ever-growing regulation
Benefits: Increased accuracy and quick end-to-end process completion
3. Deliver better customer experience
Forrester data shows that 72% of businesses prioritize
improving customer experience as their number one goal.
With multiple applications, customer data can be scattered within organizations. When the data gets manually updated in the systems, the end-to-end process that includes customer interactions can experience delays. RPA bridges the gap between multiple systems to enable nearly-real time updates. Manual tasks are accurately performed by software bots and employees get time to focus on delivering better customer experience and engage in more value-based tasks.
Business value: Excellence in delivering enhanced customer services empowering competitive edge
Benefits: Improved employee and customer satisfaction
4. Increased Productivity and quick ROI
The RPA market grows at a fast pace,
doubling every 6 months and bound to reach 5 Billion USD by 2020
The speedy adoption of RPA technology can be highly attributed to quick ROI and accurate results. Robots are more productive because they can work 24×7. In addition, the RPA implementation can yield a quicker ROI compared to traditional IT projects. RPA proof-of-concept can be accomplished within a few weeks without impacting the existing IT infrastructure and the final roll-out can be done within months versus years.
Business value: Acceleration of ROI
Benefits: Accelerated productivity gains
