Robotic Process Automation (or RPA) incorporates automation through bots to perform mechanical tasks such as data manipulation, communication with other internal systems, generation of email responses and transaction processing.


The objective of RPA is focused on automating daily and repetitive tasks in order to reduce the human work that is spent on these tasks and focus it on more productive operations. In addition, it helps reduce operating and production costs, and improves efficiency and productivity levels.

  • Analyze very well the profiles of the providers that offer you RPA solutions. Validate their experience with other companies and check which projects they have participated in before.
  • Together with the supplier, he develops the work plan for the RPA project.
  • Run the RPA solution test to see if it meets expectations, they recommended in a Convedo article.
  • Implement the RPA solution.
  • Track solution performance.
  • Implement the necessary improvements.
