Robotic Process Automation
RPA is transforming how companies engage human resources. RPAs as computer systems help humans to be more productive through the reallocation of efforts to high-level decisions while delivering routine tasks at a faster speed and with more accuracy. It is also one of the technologies in digital transformation expected to displace a high number of jobs as companies hire for more essential tasks in their pursuit of efficiency.
Robotic process automation (RPA) is the automation of routine performance by emulating human actions in interacting with software systems. RPA technology makes it possible to build, deploy, and manage software robots that understand the actions being performed on a screen, identify data sources for data extraction, and perform a wide range of other defined actions humans perform at work.
