To understand the impact of Robotic Process Automation or RPA on a process, we must assess the effort that went in, time consumed and the cost involved. Fortunately, RPA helps reduce costs, where ‘cost’ covers both financial and human-centric costs, employee time and effort and also helps increase operational efficiency.
Here are a few ways to measure your ROI from an RPA implementation:
Humans err, automation helps avoid errors. RPA eliminates the errors that are unavoidable in the case of manual execution of tasks, due to tedious nature of the task, exhaustion, lack of attentiveness, and so on. If companies compare the amount of work that needs to be done to compensate for errors before and after RPA implementation, they will understand the reduction in the number of tasks involved. The focus is on reducing the need to redo the work due to errors; this will result in more efficient processing, in lesser time, and for lesser money.
Operational and business insights
Firms can learn about what happened in the RPA deployment (operational) and understand how it benefitted the business. It can help firms to rely on data for business decisions and insights.
Robotic Process Automation can be influential in managing the compliance hassles faced by organizations. The organizations have to ensure the automatic compliance check-ups are in the workflow, so that all the compliance and regulation criteria are easily handled. Moreover, the bots can handle the task of generating regulatory reports, thus improving the speed as well as the accuracy of the processes.
Effective deployment of resources
Instead of spending your resource’s productivity time on doing mundane tasks, it can be focused on improving your customer success and retention rate. The employees can contribute to operational efficiency.
Everyone is happier is the productivity hits skyrocketing. Bots don’t have time for coffee or rest; all they need is a few patches, upgrades, and maintenance. Bots consume less time for the process and complete it effectively without human error.
What more do you want?
It is now globally accepted that RPA solutions will offer the advantage of efficient processes and significant cost-savings to companies. However, businesses looking to adopt RPA services need to know the critical performance metrics to measure the ROI of RPA to make effective decisions about automation technology, and to justify the investments to the stakeholders.
