What is Robotic Process Automation?

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the use of software bots to automate mundane, repetitive, rules-based processes. Bots are used to free up staff and resources for more important and valuable tasks.

RPA technology is a platform that enables the user to build, deploy and manage software bots that can imitate human action by interacting with digital systems using interfaces designed for people. Actions include navigating systems; understanding what is on the screen; completing keystrokes; extracting, inserting and manipulating data and performing defined actions.

Why automate?

RPA provides the technology and opportunity to improve the efficiency of workflows, thus increasing the profitability, flexibility, and productivity of organisations.

Robotic Process Automation gives staff a break from repetitive administrative tasks that take up time best spent on more complex, essential jobs that would normally have to wait for the still important day-to-day processes to be complete.

Robotic Process Automation in Local Government

With the need to go digital becoming more intensive, local councils need to catch up.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) gives the opportunity to improve resident experiences by providing quick access to services and data.
