Exploring the feasibility of the process and the financial impact goes hand in hand with the selection of the tool being considered for implementation. This is one of the most critical stages in this process, because the benefits associated with automation are correlated to how fine of an automation process is required in the business. An RPA Solution is not built to address the same business problems across varying organizations, and so the same automations cannot be used across the board. However, the beauty of intelligent automation is its infinite potential for customization
In many scenarios, organizations will first identify various processes that they’d like to automate based on the successes of other processes. This not only complicates the implementation of an RPA solution, but may also lead to the application of robotic process automation to processes that are necessary and may not add any value to the business.
- Standalone applications: One bot for every five users
- Web applications: One bot for every four and a half users
- Citrix applications: One bot for every three and three-quarter users
- Remote: One bot for every three and a half users
Process selection is another feature of tool identification. The processes you select to be automated should be stable, repetitive in nature and must be structured in a comprehensive manner to be considered for automation. While processes cannot be automated completely, selecting those that are ideal and fit the guidelines ensure a greater chance of success.
