Unfortunately, employees with no in-depth experience in RPA are likely to underestimate the complexity of implementations, as well as the efficiency of the organization’s business processes. Too many companies suffer from the implementation and budget overruns included in their ROI because the project schedule was extended more than expected. Poor RPA design that ignores and corrects inefficient business processes also affects robotic process automation value capture, evaporating efficiency and productivity gains. Having a strong business process design team that can anticipate and prepare for process exceptions, is critical to RPA’s success. Robotic Process Automation is one of the best solutions to implement during your digital transformation journey. But it is one thing to understand the benefits of RPA and another to implement RPA in your inexperienced business process.
These teams consist of people from the company’s IT and business departments. Team members must work consistently to successfully implement and use RPA implementation. Lack of collaboration between these teams can determine a path to RPA failure.
Just throwing a bone doesn’t mean you’ve already crossed the finish line. RPA’s success depends on continued and serious attention to the objectives and results of its efforts. Now that you have identified promising initial RPA opportunities, it is time to assess how these processes work in their current state. RPA shines more when it automates clearly defined and optimized processes. Automating a complicated process that does not follow an efficient path will result in a reduced ROI. Therefore, you need to streamline your processes, even if it means reinventing them completely.
One should start by applying unusual applications and not forget about managing business processes. It is also not necessary to fully automate every process to make it effective. Processes with a minimal chance of change are most effective when implementing robot process automation solutions. ScottMadden is proud to work with our customers on innovative concepts and state-of-the-art technology programs that improve effectiveness and efficiency. We have worked with several well-known companies to monitor these RPA implementation steps.
For a good implementation of robot process automation, a company must combine diligence with skill. Since RPA implementation is in an organizational change initiative, it is critical that each stakeholder closely follows an implementation roadmap even after initial successes. It is vital that the right RPA provider provides the efficient user experience, trains enough resources to reduce the level of technical input, and finally an RPA platform with strong features.
