RPA focuses on automating and adding intelligence to routine business processes in a way that supports a collaboration between humans, artificial intelligence and process automation technology.
RPA is big news NOT just because it automates repetitive data-intensive processes. Companies have been able to automate business processes prior to the emergence of RPA.
Prior to this technology, processes, systems and data could only be automated and integrated through inflexible, customized integrations. This typically translated into high costs and ongoing maintenance.
It’s no surprise that there are an astonishingly large numbers of inefficient processes within organizations based on outdated or outgrown systems. Often, those inefficiencies are tolerated because, individually, those processes don’t achieve enough efficiency through automation to justify the investment in upgrades, replacement. In the aggregate, however, those inefficiencies within each department and each process can amount to a lot of costly overhead and a lot of potential risk due to potential errors or lack of visibility/control.
Robotic process automation software matters today because it lowers the bar in terms of cost, effort and complexity for automating manual processes, dramatically increasing the potential for cost savings, efficiency gains and scalability for a wide range of business processes.
Today’s digital transformation platforms incorporate robotic automation process techniques to create a flexible system that can extract data from a wide range of documents and communications channels. RPA allows these platforms to integrate seamlessly with data (ERP) and document (ECM) systems to automate document sorting/filing, data entry and verification/approval workflows.
These systems allow a company to:
Artsyl focuses on solving the most painful, manual steps in common business processes; document handling and routing, transaction data entry and validation and reports/process monitoring.
By relying on Artsyl solutions for extracting data from scanned paper documents and electronic files, customers achieve more timely access to data and can automatically eliminate duplicate documents/data.
Artsyl’s docAlpha digital transformation platform provides intelligent capture, data validation, automated workflow and ERP/ECM integration to fully automate data/document-dependent processes.
While docAlpha is designed to handle any type of document in support of any business process, Artsyl offers process-specific applications to simplify and streamline implementing automation for common back office processes like AP invoices and sales orders.
InvoiceAction minimizes the cost, complexity and time required to implement a complete AP automation solution for vendor invoices.
OrderAction automates and streamlines sales order processing, delivering more complete, timely buyer behavior data while reducing order cycle times and days sales outstanding.
