Are you planning for RPA deployment in your organization?
How do you ensure the successful implementation of RPA?
How do you identify the right processes for automation?
What is RPA, and why?
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is about automating repeatable high-volume tasks. Compared to workflow automation, this approach aims to work on the front-end of software, removing the need for heavy integrations and scripting.
RPA can bring about huge business benefits to a company, but it can also be very costly if implemented without sufficient process knowledge. Insufficient understanding of the steps, substeps, and variations in your processes leads to loss of time and resources. Consequently, finding out about your processes through traditional methods, such as workshops and process modeling can also be lengthy and costly endeavors. For gaining the needed information, process mining is the perfect tool for your RPA effort.
QPR's 4 Steps to RPA Deployment Success
1. Understand processes, deviations, and variations
2. Harmonize processes
3. Implement RPA solution
4. Process follow-up / process compliance
Monitor automation progress in QPR ProcessAnalyzer by using ChartView to create a bar chart visualizing the number of events that are automated vs manual.
What benefits can you achieve using process mining to support RPA and process automation?
Significant cost savings, efficiency, and quality improvements
Adopting RPA and process automation in an organization can be an expensive investment, process mining helps to avoid unnecessary costs of automaing unstreamlined processes and having to reprogram the robots. By using process mining to optimize the adoption of process automation and robotics, the implementation timeline of RPA is shortened by half, project risk is reduced by 60%, and business value is increased by 40%.
How does process mining support RPA and process automation?
Use process mining to identify automation opportunities and application areas.
With process mining, you'll be able to tap into your system data and identify and understand your processes automatically. Extracting process data from your transactional systems gives you exact information about your processes. By analyzing this data, you'll rapidly build up your awareness of your processes and bottlenecks. These findings give you a roadmap for implementing RPA solutions.
Starting with the process mining tool QPR ProcessAnalyzer, you gain comprehensive knowledge about your processes and can see how they perform optimally. Using insights gained from QPR ProcessAnalyzer, you can understand process deviations and variations, and easily pinpoint where your processes can benefit from RPA. Using process mining gives you a great support for deploying RPA to your operations.
Scale up and Monitor Processes
After implementing RPA, you can continue monitoring the performance of your process using QPR ProcessAnalyzer and dashboards created in QPR UI. These dashboards give you information on how the process is performing and how you can improve upon it. These dashboards are also powerful communication tools for stakeholders on how the process is performing.
Combine QPR's long process management experience with its advanced, flagship product QPR ProcessAnalyzer, and make your RPA automation initiatives worth your investment.
