In today’s world, companies struggle with mountains of data, incomplete information and inefficient and complex ways of processing all these data. Moreover, employees spent a significant amount of their time doing these repetitive tasks. But generating ways to handle all this in a more productive way is not an easy thing to do.

Many new technologies such as process mining, data-sharing platforms and the Internet of Things (IoT) can already help your organisation to successfully share information and optimise processes in a reliable manner. The integration of these digital innovations, however, is rather complex and time-consuming.
Research has revealed that about 40% of all our manual work could potentially and immediately be automated by choosing for Robotic Process Automation (RPA). In this white paper, we explore the ins and outs of RPA technology and the opportunities it offers in more depth, and we explain the best way to introduce it (or why in certain situations you shouldn’t).

“RPA constitutes an important link in the next efficiency and productivity boost.”

Thanks to RPA, employees have more time which they can use to work in a more customer-oriented manner, devise more simple and effective processes or simply cope with the increasing work volume.
