What is Digital Automation and RPA

80% of businesses are still operating most processes manually. 

Employee resource is the most expensive operating cost of a business.

No this does not mean that you will necessarily implement more efficient process and lose hard working and valuable staff. However it does mean that you can scale without adding headcount, and may mean that you can redistribute resource to to higher value tasks.

Automation will help with managing and performing manual tasks and processes 24/7 without the need for human intervention.

Some of the benefits of RPA/BPA (Robotic Process Automation/Business Process Automation):

    • Enable digital transformation
    • Improve controls
    • Improve compliance and governance
    • Provide business intelligence

    • Enable business growth and scalability
    • Ensure 100% greater accuracy of data
    • Maximise availability (24/7×365)
