Robotic Process Automation (RPA) allows businesses to automate routine tasks that are mostly structured, rigid, and tedious to do, particularly those involving manual repetition interacting with digital systems. It is a form of clerical process automation technology based on software workers, commonly known as ‘bots’, mimicking human behaviour.

RPA scenarios range from being as simple as generating an automatic email response to deploying thousands of bots, each programmed to automate jobs in a specific system. Early adopters have been in the financial services sectors but demand is growing elsewhere, especially in the healthcare, telecom and government sectors.

“RPA can offer first year ROI’s of between 30% and 200%
                    - Mckinsey & Co. 2018

The best processes to automate are those which are repetitive, prone to human error, involve digital data, time critical and are rule-based. Automating these types of jobs can free up the workforce to drive innovation in key performance areas in the business.

What your organisation can achieve?

RPA: Reduction in costs

Reduction in costs

By automating tasks, cost savings of nearly 30% can be achieved over the output of productivity.

RPA:Customer experience

Better customer experience

Deploying RPA helps enable faster and more accurate responses. There are examples in financial services where the customer on-boarding experience has been reduced from weeks to hours

Employee Engagement_2

Improvements to employee engagement

Engaging bots frees up your employees to work on more fulfilling, rewarding and business beneficial tasks

Lower operational risk_2

Lower operational risk

By eliminating human factors, such as tiredness or lack of knowledge, RPA reduces the rate of errors to close to 100%. 

RPA: Internal processes

Improved internal processes

In order to leverage AI and RPA, businesses need to define clear governance procedures around internal reporting, on-boarding and other internal activities

RPA: IT Efficiencies

Efficiencies with existing IT systems

One of the biggest advantages of using an RPA bot is that it can be set up and applied in weeks and immediately achieve reductions in time and cost.

Infomentum is helping organisations scale RPA to achieve the best processes efficiency in the shortest time-frame through its robotics Centre of Excellenceour dedicated team of RPA experts. This is being established through our partnerships with Automation Anywhere and UiPath.

  • We deploy process mining methods using tools like Celonis to automatically visualise every variation of your processes
  • This, combined with a high-level benefit analysis from our dedicated team, helps us identify the most obvious candidates for RPA - anything involving human judgement will be ruled out
  • Our ‘SHIFT, SHAPE, SUSTAIN’ framework will then drive the shortlisted processes into automation
  • Then the magic happens – automation design and implementation to get the bots up and running
