Automate work rather than hiring temp labour
As organizations are getting back on track, now is the time to introduce a digital workforce to support your organization and to help deal with your backlog of work. It will also prove useful in overcoming future crises.
COVID-19 has led to a surge of workforce reduction, and after the crisis, workforce reintroduction will be challenging as well. But adapting to RPA could help employees, as it supports labor market dynamics, reduces losses associated with repetitive tasks and tasks that require considerable strength, adds flexibility and endurance to working lives, and overall enriches work and the company culture.
The impact of automation and AI on the workplace is happening now.
Paper versus paperless
During COVID-19, the transformation and adoption of electronic content management became a new necessity for organizations. They were confronted with pileups of identity documents, receipts, invoices, documents and bills for audit, reconciliation and other purposes. And reduction in manpower, lag in document review and manual working errors added much inconsistency.
With easy-to-use intelligent document processing solutions, RPA-OCR solutions, you can identify and extract data from structured and semi-structured business documents, such as invoices or purchase orders.
Benefits of using RPA with OCR:
- Improved data access and accuracy and increased processing speed.
- Human-in-the-loop verification, security and compliance for all industries
Vice versa, RPA can help you digitize and make your business paperless. Smart processes in RPA can create invoices, receipts, bills, … and they can send letters and email customers, consumers and stakeholders based on business needs.
Enable your staff to work with data effectively while self-isolating
The biggest challenge of IT departments during COVID-19 is the struggle to ensure that all staff have access to the tools and data they need to support critical business.
Software robots adopt and accelerate the setup of the existing remote-working tools of an organization and can serve as intermediary support. It can have privileged access to data sources and can help in getting data extracted from different sources and exchanged to employees who do not have access to the tools directly so that they can do their work without audit concerns.
