Customized solutions that can augment the output of your business by improving the implementation of assets and reduction of expenditure.
Erratic finance, overwhelming rivalry, and the force of technology are driving business owners to introduce changes to their workflow in order to remain significant in the market. The strategy of Business Process Automation leverages modern technology to heighten the expertise and yield of your organization.
By providing advice and guidance, and unique, customized software solutions for upgrading the process efficiency, we aid business owners in gaining more development in productivity and the generation of revenue.
We analyze the current process of your business, and spot areas of improvement, like:
We design a customized application on the basis of our analysis, post reviews and rectifications. The application is created and put into action as per the model, which boosts your company’s ability to produce more revenue and business, at the same time evading the hindrances and human errors affecting the quality and processing time. The model also allows space for identifying, compiling and enforcing evolving exigencies or adjustments (user stories and artifacts) for future implementation.
Our implementation of automation is monitored by us, and we conduct meetings with stakeholders to verify and judge the extent of improvement in their enterprise post-implementation. We resolve lapses and performance tweaks and invite feedback from end users. The response from end users and stake holders are compiled and saved in a business archive for application as the business expands and evolves.
Automation can present excellent opportunities when it is applied expertly. It takes wise planning and adept execution to reap the advantages of automation.
The prerequisite for the utmost effective application of automation is a mix of technology, process expertise, domain knowledge, and governance structure.
The RPA deployment process would have the following steps –
A crucial step related to automation is to ascertain which business processes would generate the most returns when automated. In general, there are three process types which are good nominees for automation –
The criteria given here can be used as a guiding rule for the identification of processes which can be automated –
Processes that necessitate high FTE, and hence a considerable number of employees
Processes which possess simple logic, and a small number of exceptions to rules
Processes dealing with structured and digitized data
Processes the intensity of which is required to scale up and down as per demand, in short notice
Those processes that cause blockages because of high consumption of time
A major challenge in the application of automation is the period of time that is taken for ROI and for overcoming the hindrances involved in automating.
A few common hurdles can be –
Ventures that deal with processes having high complexity.
Automating processes that have high exception rates.
Enterprises that require conforming to regulatory requirements.
Enterprises that deal with legacy data that is non-digitized / non-structured.
The cost of RPA tools and the expenditure related to implementation diminish with the growth in volume. A minimal volume, therefore, is required for efficiency to be seen and gains to return.
All such factors can contribute to increasing the development time, and reducing the rate of automation in an organization.
Targets, expectations and rightness of automation need to be driven by considering these factors. Centralized tools may be utilized for monitoring the performance and return being generated over time, for driving more decisions.
A structure for governance, like a ship’s rudder, helps to ‘drive’ automation in the right direction, to get quantifiable benefits in a definite period of time.
The most significant elements are -
It is expected that organizations assess tools with pre-built automation libraries having re-usable parts to join back-end systems, data-extraction capacity, and cost and licensing alternatives.
The top three leading players in the market are–
Every one of these tools has its own set of pros and cons. The appropriateness of any of these platforms, or platforms combined, depends upon the use case.
It is important to understand the plus and minus points of the numerous tools available to ‘employ the relevant tool for the relevant purpose’.
Finding out situations of bottlenecks and reengineering processes to render them optimal and more appropriate for automation are essential aspects of automation implementation.
Incompetent processes with severe dependency on other processes, or processes that are not standardized, having high exception rates, would not produce the desired result. It is necessary to try to re-engineer such processes to make them greater suited for automation, or mark them as unsuitable for automation.
The application of automation fails many times due to the lack of collaboration between IT and Business functions.
Automation depends greatly on IT support in the structuring of data, as well as business processes. It depends equally upon the viewpoint of the business, the domain knowledge, subject matter proficiency, and the nuances of business processes which need maintenance for keeping it usable. Automation has to be a combined effort between IT and the business with an operating model defining the responsibilities and roles of each player.
Even though the function has to possess the operational requirements, process design initiatives, and performance monitoring, factors like risk management, reliability, technological compatibility, identity and access control, and compliance are to be delivered by the IT organization.
Though the advantages of RPA can be many, businesses require a well-designed strategy to swivel from boardroom conversations to factual success. Directed methodically, RPA adoption is leading to gaining the cost and operational efficiencies wanted by most of the organizations.
Companies can also profit from enhancing their processes using alternative automation techniques or specialized software, other than only RPA robots.
AI can be brought into use for overcoming some shortcomings like nonlinear decision making, and the ability to handle ‘exceptions to rules’ to present more flexibility to an automated process and decrease the need of manual intervention. Other than this obvious application, AI can be also utilized to improve automated processes for which a few ideas could be –
Businesses can also gain from boosting their processes employing other automation techniques or specialized software, other than just RPA robots.
AI can be looked upon as a means to transfer routine tasks to a robot, for human minds to be utilized to their complete potential for carrying out creative and original tasks, instead of wasting time on organizing, responding, reporting and sorting.
The basic drive for automation IoT is to considerably lessen the operating costs when automation devices, sensors and actuators turn into Internet-enabled devices. It is the next major leap in productivity as there are big advantages to be obtained from the procurement and organization of hitherto unimaginable quantities of data. The new Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence (EMI) software gets manufacturing-related data together from various sources for analysis, visual summaries, reporting, and transfer of data between enterprise-level and plant-floor systems.
At present, we are working on a IoT project that is a collaboration between an Indian DTH Television provider and Over The Top media distributor, for the creation of a universal Android based receiver box, that can act both as the set top box for watching TV / Recording shows, and also as access specialized apps for watching films / shows / VODs in free, freemium (free with ads), subscription, as well as pay-per-view model, focusing on following the users’ viewing habits and acquiring and presenting content which users prefer to watch.
We have defined some generic ideas and fundamental methods of the application of RPA / Automation. We can have a more precise discussion post gaining more information on your views, pain points, roadmaps, and present status of implementation.
