The Benefits of Cloud RPA
Automating back-office processes that are costly to deliver, error-prone, or labor intensive is high on the list of many organizations and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software is often the catalyst for the change from workforce-based models to technology.
To date, the approach for implementing RPA has been installing automation enabling software on-site, whether in the datacenter or closer to the process facilities themselves. The choice is often dependent on factors such as data security, regulatory requirements, network and IT infrastructure or other physical features of the environment. With Cloud RPA, or Robotic Process Automation as-a-Service (RPAaaS), emerging as a hybrid of the BPaaS model, expect to see process automation adoption rates increase even faster as this new delivery model enables an economic business case that on-premise implementations won’t always achieve.
Comparing Cloud RPA to On-Site Software Installations
All the processes implemented on Virtual Operations’ Robot Minute© service include business process analysis, automation design and development services, RPA software, secure cloud infrastructure, support and management. Along with a usage-based pricing model, other benefits of the Robot Minute© RPAaaS solution include the following:
- An analysis of target business processes to identify the best RPAaaS candidates
- Designing the workflow, rules and automated solution for the chosen process(es)
- Developing, testing and optimizing the process on the Robot Minute© Cloud RPA platform
- Operational implementation and ongoing management of the automated process(es)
Along with the faster implementation times for deploying processes on Virtual Operations Cloud RPA platform, pricing is the other major difference for Robot Minute© RPAaaS compared to on-premise installations. With Robot Minute© Cloud RPA organizations pay for Robotic Process Automation on a monthly subscription model that is based on usage, rather than the multi-year licensing models associated with most on site implementations of RPA software.
Ideal Operations and Processes For Cloud RPAaaS
Because Robot Minute© Cloud RPA launches faster, scales more rapidly, is available on a monthly subscription and is priced based on usage it is ideal for automating processes that are shorter term, have a high degree of cyclical volume, or happen in batch mode. Ideal automation candidates for Robot Minute© RPAaaS include processes within the back-office operations of functions such as:
- On-boarding, Off-boarding, Payroll
Finance and Accounting
- AP, Invoicing, Collections, Order Management
- Supplier Management, Vendor Invoicing, Inventory Analysis
