Robotic Process Automation or its successor Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) is a software platform consisting of Digital Workers (Robots) that mimic human activity and perform repetitive tasks more quickly, accurately and tirelessly than humans, freeing your workforce from repetitive but vital work.
These Digital Workers are able to operate across multiple applications, systems and platforms, interacting with the User Interface of your systems and working just like a human does……only much, much faster and with no mistakes or coffee breaks.
A Digital Worker can be up to 10 times more productive than a human worker. They don't get sick, they never get tired and they can work up to 24 hours a day.
Each worker is a fraction of the cost of a human equivalent so you can imagine the immense cost savings available via automation.
