Your employees are your business’s most valuable asset, no question about it. Their talents shouldn’t be wasted on monotonous digital tasks that could instead be completed in a fraction of the time by intelligent RPA software bots.
A business can boast the best product, implement optimum marketing strategies, and have the perfect processes in place; but without a top-notch team of exceptional people, it won’t get very far.
So why would you waste your employee’s valuable time and expertise on completing dull, manual processes that slow down their productivity – affecting your business – and making that work a chore – affecting job satisfaction?
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a transformative technology that uses software robots to handle repetitive and high-volume tasks at top speed and with increased accuracy, freeing up the human workforce to focus on tasks that they do best, and enjoy most.
Below we take a look at some real-world examples of how RPA has transformed working conditions across a range of industries, resulting in significant time saving and improved employee satisfaction.
RPA software has been successfully utilized across a range of industries to free up employees’ time to concentrate on more valuable work.
A large insurance agency reports that they save between 20 and 40 hours a day since implementing RPA technology. Larry H, a systems administrator at the agency says, “Our organization has improved because of the time savings. We’ve got robots now taking 10 seconds to do what people were taking four to six minutes to do. It’s a whole department of people that are now free to do other things.”
A major manufacturing company similarly reports that utilizing RPA on a high-visibility data entry project saved their retail managers roughly 5 500 hours a year.
Significate time-saving after RPA implementation is reported by a managing associate at a legal firm too: “Our processing time was reduced to half an hour from something that would have taken up the whole day (eight hours). This has freed up our legal staff’s time to focus on more important and strategic tasks.”
Improved employee satisfaction
Doing the same thing over and over every day is not only dull but can lead to poor employee morale. When automation software takes over these mundane tasks, employees are free to focus on more important work that stimulates them, leading to improved job satisfaction.
A department lead at a consultancy firm remarked that since the implementation of RPA software, employees can now “use automation and apply their brains somewhere fruitful.”
When human resources are no longer bogged down by time-consuming manual tasks like moving files, filling out forms, and extracting data from emails, they can focus on more important work, like collaborating on innovative business projects and interacting with customers.
At another consultancy, a developer noted that “A [RPA] robot takes [repetitive tasks] away and helps people enjoy their work a lot more because they can do non-repetitive tasks. They can be a lot more customer-facing and perhaps build stronger relationships with their customers, know them better, and have more time available to work on other projects or work on other things that they may never have had the time to do.”
Aaron F, a systems administrator at a manufacturing company remarked that since implementing automation solutions, he has noticed performance benefits with his staff. Since being relieved of some of the tedious tasks they previously used to spend time and energy on, they are significantly happier and more stimulated in their jobs.
Implementing RPA software to complete manual computer-based administrative tasks provides the workforce with more time to focus their energy on meaningful human tasks, not robotic ones. When they no longer need to waste valuable brainpower on mundane digital tasks, productivity will increase as will overall employee satisfaction.
Isn’t it time that you discovered how implementing RPA can save your business time, increase productivity, and boost employee morale?
Your employees will thank you.
