RPA Technology 101: What Is It And How It Works
Introduction To RPA
Robotic Process Automation is a creative way of working on tasks that can easily be classified by the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Robotic: Machines that mimic human actions are called Robots.
Process: Steps in the sequence which lead to a meaningful activity.
Automation: Any action which is done by a robot without human guidance.
So, mimicking human actions to perform a sequence of steps that lead to meaningful activity, without any human guidance is known as Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
RPA Technology For Successful Applications Across All Industries
Small as-well-as large scale enterprises around the world are slowly adopting Robotic Process Automation for diverse logics. Every industry has its own different needs and eccentricity that RPA helps in fixing it, from simple to complex problems.
Employee Productivity In Retail
The essential use-case for RPA is in improving worker productivity. The bureau of labor statistics (BLS) in the US estimates that over 5.9 million workers are working in the retail industry. Businesses spend billions of dollars on hiring, training, managing people, most of which have failed to show an increase in productivity.
The global retailer has occupied AI-powered chatbots with co-operating with employees and providing the information they needed on time. Some of the 500+ robots the company brought on board also do the kind of work that employees would find dull, tired of, or make mistakes, such as sifting through tens of thousands of pages of audit documents.
But now with the help of RPA, it is efficient to do the time-consuming work.
