One of the biggest misconceptions about RPA technology is that software robots are unreliable, which can’t be further from the truth. However, many factors can influence the success of your RPA project, from choosing the wrong process for automation to the preparation needed to even start with the RPA journey.
Not to mention, we often meet clients that previously had a bad experience with RPA due to poor implementation caused by inexperienced RPA developers. Keep in mind that the product (even the best one) is as good as the person implementing it, so don’t write off the technology just because a developer lack experience.
Here, we’ll show you why the RPA is reliable and where exactly the myth originated from. Let’s dive into it!
What Processes Are the Best Candidates for RPA?
Not every business process is qualified for automation; the wrong ones will be doomed from the get-go, while the right ones will reap success from the moment they’re automated.
To achieve the latter, we have to take some parameters into account. The process candidates for RPA have to be:
When we meet the mentioned requirements, the process you choose to automate will be reliable, execute faster, and error-free, allowing you to finally focus on what you do best.
If you’re new to RPA technology and still struggle to pinpoint the suitable process, here’s a hint – you can start automating almost every process in your finance department. It will inspire you to recognize the future candidates for automation right away, regardless of the industry.
How To Prepare for RPA Implementation?
After you have determined the processes you want to automate, it’s time to prepare for the RPA Journey. The best way to do that is to have a discovery call with RPA Consultant to check if the process is really fit for RPA.
When we start with the business analysis and workshop, we’ll dissect the process to the tiniest steps and optimize it if necessary. We can now start developing and setting it up for automation.
After testing before the production, and final fine-tuning, we’re ready to deliver you a fully automated and error-free process, which we’ll monitor for the next ten days, with complete support at your disposal at any moment of our collaboration.
So, RPA IS Reliable?
Yes, automating your business processes with RPA software is not only reliable but efficient as well. It will also allow your employees to focus on other activities that require more creativity and intuition.
However, make sure to have an experienced RPA Consultant automating your processes. You can find many RPA vendors on the market selling RPA platforms that are hard to use and, to make things even worse, they’re not providing adequate support. It all resulted in unskilled developers implementing a product that, in the end, doesn’t get the job done. No wonder we met many clients who lost faith in RPA just because they had a bad experience with other vendors.
However, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Here’s the first clue to decipher if your RPA vendor is legit. Ask them:
- If they provide support and for how long
- How long it takes to implement the process (if it’s more than 30 days, it can indicate that they’re working on an unnecessarily complicated platform. Or they simply lack skills.)
- To see their license models and prices — 30-40 pages long? Give us a break. We managed to make a simple and straightforward one-pager with our license models.
Now That the Myth Is Busted…
Go ahead and check the real-life cases with real numbers here — we mean business.
We didn’t invent the wheel here — we just recognized what other platforms needed but didn’t have, simplified it to be a real low-code/no-code platform, and provided you with a simple-to-use yet robust software robot/Digital Teammate ready to jump in no-time.
