Frequently Asked Questions

What is RPA?

RPA is the abbreviation for robotic process automation. It is a branch of automation where user’s actions (such as mouse clicks and keyboard entries) in computer applications are replicated and automated. This type of automation has been around since the late 1990s and early 2000s, but is only recently becoming popular due to its association with artificial intelligence and automation.

What is the purpose of RPA?

By mapping a business or process workflow into a series of steps and conditions to be done on computer applications, it is possible to automate workflows that are repetitive and have large volume. For example, receiving an order from an email, keying in order details into inventory management application, and sending a confirmation note in the CRM application. It can be automated using RPA, thereby increasing efficiency of work processes. 

What are the benefits of using RPA?

RPA helps to improve efficiency and productivity by automating repetitive manual processes, leaving people to focus on the higher-value activities which create greater value for customers. Human errors can be reduced and the process can be done faster when automated with a computer.
