RPA is based on robot or “bot” software designed to automate routine tasks such as email routing and response, conducting credit checks, claims processing, procure-to-pay, quote-to-cash, data entry in financial or HR systems, and similar manual work.

Smart machine with double exposure of data and IoT concepts.

When business leaders think about making use of their data, they’re looking to increase productivity and competitiveness, reduce risk, and create new revenue streams.
