Today, more and more companies are looking to automate manual laborious tasks. RPA (Robotic Process Automation) is an acronym that is floating around when companies strategize towards automation.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) simply explained is the use of software to perform repetitive manual tasks.
We can further breakdown RPA as fully automated, partially automated with some sort of human intervention or intelligent automation with the use of artificial intelligence.
Process analysis is the first step that an organization must conduct followed by an assessment and feasibility study for an effective RPA adoption.
RPA process analysis refers to the process of identifying and analyzing business processes that are suitable for RPA. It involves identifying tasks and activities within a business process that can be automated using software robots. The process analysis typically involves a detailed study of the business process, including its inputs, outputs, dependencies, and performance metrics. The analysis also involves understanding the underlying rules, exceptions, and decision-making criteria that are involved in the process.
The goal of RPA process analysis is to identify the right processes for automation that can deliver the maximum benefits in terms of cost savings, efficiency gains, and improved accuracy. It is an essential step in any RPA implementation project, as it helps to ensure that the automation initiative is aligned with the organization's strategic goals and objectives.
Implementing RPA involves, performing a thorough process analysis, proper planning, identification, and governance. The main goal is to increase business agility, reduce cost and increase return on investment (ROI).
Identifying the right business processes for automation is critical for ensuring that your organization achieves its digital transformation goals.
Our team of dedicated RPA experts can help you in performing detailed process analysis, assessment, feasibility analysis and provide you recommendations and roadmap for automation/RPA Adoption.
We have experience working with industry standard RPA products (UiPath, MS Power Automate, Automation Anywhere).

We have highlighted a few key strategies to identify whether a process can be automated or not. These will help in the RPA Process Analysis and get you a step closer to automation.
A rule of thumb, one-time processes cannot be automated. To determine a process for automation, processes need to be repetitive following a set of rules.
You should be able to clearly identify process input, execution steps, and consistent output. These processes are excellent candidates for automation.
Paying close attention to consistency and data format for a process is key for automation. These could be a combination of structured data or using artificial intelligence to parse unstructured data.
A few good candidates are:
• Back-office processing tasks (i.e.: Finance & Accounting, Business Services, Payroll, Reporting, Data Entry, etc.)
• Front-office processing tasks (i.e.: Customer facing repetitive tasks, Point of Sale process, Website Chatbots, etc.)
Implementing RPA involves, performing a thorough process analysis, assessment and feasibility analysis. The strategies mentioned above will help to identify business processes for automation, enabling you to reduce cost and increase ROI.
