New way of working in the New Normal era.
When COVID-19 is an important variable that causes work from home or hybrid work, working with paper has become an obstacle that makes operations stop. Not as smooth as before Employee behavior must change. Whether it’s tracking work through online meetings.
The use of dashboards and powerlessness on the organization’s side also requires a direction of change. Both management planning Communication improvements and finding various tools to support the new work style of employees
The organization’s solution is to look for solutions that bring employee behaviors and new directions closer together. Without putting too much burden on employees, RPA therefore responds to this problem by being a tool that revolutionizes the work style in the New Normal era and drives work to be more efficient.
What is Robotic Process Automation (RPA)?
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a robotic program that can mimic human tasks through computers, such as opening emails and attachments. Logging in to a corporate web or application Moving files and folders filling out forms, for example, RPA can be faster and more accurate than humans. Therefore, it is suitable for difficult and time-consuming tasks.
RPA can be categorized into two types according to working style:
RPA Attended Automation is an RPA that acts as an assistant in order to fulfill orders. Employees are required to cover the work.
Due to the decision-making or creativity of the employees, this type of RPA has different behaviors as follows: Hands-off automation is an RPA that inherits repetitive tasks within a short period of time, such as checking email and downloading files. Collect data from various systems to issue daily reports. Comparison of data from the system and Excel files and fill out the display form.
Side-by-Side automation is an RPA that works alongside the multitasking worker, for example, when a robot writes a report while the employee prepares a presentation. Or, if the employee is in a meeting, the RPA can help check email and download attachments.
Interactive automation is an RPA that interactively interacts with employees. When an employee is triggered, the RPA’s actions are executed according to the previously defined commands. Then forward to the staff to check and take the next step. Event-driven automation is an event-driven RPA.
For example, as employees update additional information, the RPA can automatically track and update reports. Interconnected automation is an RPA that connects interoperability across groups. Whether between employees and customers staff to staff and staff with RPA.
RPA Unattended Robot is an RPA that can work as a back office, connecting various systems together, ready to support work 24 hours a day without having to have staff to supervise the work. Employees can simply schedule a looped RPA or set it to trigger another bot and check the results later.
