Over this past year of 2020, workers and companies have been faced with new challenges relating to the pandemic. Illness, anxiety, fear, and unpredictable circumstances are just a few to mention. Many have had to learn how to make different decisions and adjustments to their everyday routines. Workers have had to learn how to be creative and flexible by molding their home and work environments together. Initially this challenge may have seemed overwhelming and at times not conducive for the workforce, but it is during challenging times like these that great advancements and positive change have had space to take root and grow. This is where recent technological advances in software will help.
With many workplace environments changing and an increase in the need to excel, many companies and organizations have been looking for methods that increase their efficiency and productivity. Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Automation Intelligence (AI), and Intelligent Automation (IA) have and are becoming central methods of focus. RPA is a style of technology that uses robots to perform tasks with more precision, accuracy, and speed than many workers can perform by themselves. This technology has become key for companies when performing tasks, as it allows employees to accomplish simple tasks faster, so they can devote time to more complex tasks.
Advancements and implementation of RPA in the workplace have been on the rise and are reported to continue to rise. The “Now & Next: State of RPA Report” by Automation Anywhere, contains a survey conducted by the Enterprise Technology Research (ETR) reports this trend. Implementing RPA in the workplace has proven to be a successful avenue to pursue. According to Automation Anywhere’s “Now & Next: State of RPA Report”, 78% of those who have or plan to deploy RPA in their workplace have already increased their productivity levels.
The pandemic has created many challenges for workers and companies and at times have hindered their productivity, but by companies choosing to implement RPA technology into their environments, these hinderances are being transformed into strengths.
We understand that challenges will continue to rise even after the pandemic is over. Some of these challenges may prove to be even more difficult than the ones people and companies faced during the year 2020. Challenges can be uncertain. Challenges can generate change. However, on the bright side, challenges often bring about change which produces growth.
