Robotic Process Automation
Automate repetitive processes with simple if-then decisions.
Potential savings through software robots
With Robotic Process Automation (RPA) you support the tactical and strategic goals of the company, because in the process automation by software robots there are considerable and mostly unused savings potentials.
With RPA, however, this robot does not exist physically but is only installed as software on a server or desktop. Comparable to a virtual employee who supports and relieves your workforce. RPA supports simple or time-consuming activities (e.g. opening emails, copying and pasting data records, reading out data records from the web, filling out forms).
RPA is so flexible that a robot can be programmed for almost any of these tasks of this type. RPA creates space and time for processing complex issues, reduces careless mistakes and thus achieves resource savings and an increase in productivity.
No programming skills required
RPA runs on the front-end or the user interface and, unlike traditional IT, is not in the back-end. No modification of the existing infrastructure is necessary. This results in the advantage of a quick and inexpensive implementation as well as relieving the IT department.
RPA is a lightweight IT or low-code solution.
This means that no profound programming knowledge is required to operate RPA and any non-technical user can be trained in automation with RPA programs.
This progress in technology reduces reservations among employees and, in turn, relieves the IT department.
Easy implementation of the RPA
Due to the relatively easy implementation, RPA offers the possibility to automate a large number of processes that previously did not justify a separate IT project. This is how you realize potential savings.

What are the advantages of Robotic Process Automation?
RPA has gained increasing importance in the production industry and logistics in recent years. For example, in master data management, in operational purchasing or generally as an interface between different tools that were previously unable to communicate with one another.
In the past few years, RPA technology has developed significantly. On the one hand, through the combination with artificial intelligence (cognitive automation) and, on the other hand, through the increasing simplification of usability via drag-and-drop automation. This makes RPA a realistic solution for automating repetitive processes for companies of all sizes right now.
Optimal implementation of RPA
What is our understanding?
When using RPA for the first time, there are a lot of things to consider. From the selection of suitable processes and software providers to the actual process recording and automation to ensuring long-term operation.
With a suboptimal implementation, only a few of the potentials mentioned above can be realized in the long term, which is why forward-looking planning and experience with RPA is an essential prerequisite for us.
The content-related points must be accompanied by other factors. This includes a team with the right skills and abilities as well as the use of the right methods and tools. Here, classic spreadsheet programs can no longer correctly map the often extremely complex relationships. Our special software is therefore vital.
What are the biggest sources of error in RPA?
From the very first moment, it is important for the planner to consider the holistic aspect of the task.
This is because it is important to consider all relevant aspects and to take the causal relationships into account.
