Robotic Process Automation or Software Robots is an innovative technology using which repetitive, high volume, mechanical and arduous tasks can be assigned to a virtual operator or “robot” rather than a human being. Looking at it in another way, those tasks that are performed by a human being in a robot like manner, without applying too much thought or without using any discretionary thinking, can be performed by software robots. Naturally, this frees up skilled staff for areas where their experience and intelligence can be put to better, more productive use.These business process could be Completing Invoice Processing, Opening invoice email from the supplier and printing it for records, or placing purchase orders, Matching the POs and the Invoice, verifying if that quantity delivered matches what is mentioned in the Invoice, Calculating Tax, picking out data from external data sources and so on.

How does RPA work?

Let us have a look at an example to understand the potential of RPA for a business. Accounts Payable is a monotonous process that requires digitizing invoices from the vendors using Optical Character Recognition (OCR), extracting information from all the fields in the invoice, validating it, and then processing it. At present, it a tedious task, requiring significant internal costs and has to be done on a regular basis. This is where RPA comes in. It helps in automating this process and automatically credits the payment to the vendor’s account after reconciliation of errors and validations.

Similarly, RPA helps in easing bank reconciliation process by matching the payment details with bank data and other records very quickly, keeping up with the pace of the transactions of the bank. RPA resolves and cross-verifies data between different systems to validate and check information to provide compliance and auditing outputs. It can also help you with your MIS Reporting or Monitoring.
