Talk like an RPA Subject Matter Expert in 15 Minutes

Updated: Feb 21, 2022



1 What is robotic process automation?

Robotic process automation (RPA) is a software technology that helps firms create, deploy, and manage software robots that emulate humans actions interacting with digital systems and software.

Example: Imagine that an employee can enter a sales order in your ERP in 30 minutes on a laptop or desktop computer. RPA can help you automate this process. In some cases RPA has been known to reduce this time to 5 minutes per sales order.

Like people, software robots can do things like understand the content on a screen, hit the required keys on your keyboard, navigate between screens, identify and extract data, and perform a variety of predefined actions. But software bots can do it quicker and more reliably than people, without the need to get up and stretch or take a coffee break.
