During this COVID-19 pandemic, companies everywhere have started taking the necessary measures to continue working in the safest way possible by activating all channels to provide a 100% active and remote service. At Rootstack, for instance, we’ve decided that to continue delivering high-quality projects, our employees will be working remotely, and we will continue providing our services by videoconferences or calls during our regular business hours.
During times like this, where many companies are worried about maintaining productivity levels and about the economic repercussions they might be facing in a couple of months, automating services seems even more important than it ever was.
Robot Process Automation (RPA) is a software is aimed to automate business processes, by specifically, automating repetitive tasks, streamlining enterprise operations, reducing production costs, and more importantly, reducing the need for a human in every work. During these upcoming weeks, this solution will become an essential element for any business looking for cost efficiency while increasing productivity levels.
At first glance, an RPA saves time and money by automating repetitive manual tasks using bots. But it also creates many other benefits, such as:
Implementing an RPA is a practical option for companies that, like us, have started encouraging employees to work remotely to promote social distancing and minimize the impact of employees who are instructed to remain in quarantine.
If your company deals with a lot of human interactions and inputs or just general news, implementing an RPA solution might be just what you need to handle the massive amount of opinions coming from this issue.
Another important use of RPAs during the COVID-19 pandemic, is for surveys.
Aside from the obvious benefits that this represents for productivity levels, it is particularly crucial at a time when minimizing contact in the office is one of the most critical ways we all can do our part to stop the rapid spreading of COVID-19.
These benefits are not only exclusive for in-house services that a company can have, but for healthcare professionals as well and healthcare companies that could benefit from automation in order to provide the best possible care to those in most need.
An RPA has many uses within different industries - the biggest benefit being that same flexibility and adaptability. As we continue in the COVID-19 crisis, it is this flexibility that we must seek in our solutions. As this situation progresses, companies in many different industries will be forced to adapt and change their practices, and the best we can do is find solutions that facilitate this.
