Robotic Process Automation (RPA) – rewriting the history of work

International competition is intensifying, and many companies are under pressure to shorten their innovation cycles while at the same time further personalizing their customer approaches. To remain successful in the market, you need innovative and intelligent solutions for comprehensive process optimization. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) allows humans to interact with software to perform large numbers of repeatable tasks, log in to applications, enter data, calculate and complete tasks, and copy data between applications.  RPA tools can also be connected to AI modules with features such as Optical Character Recognition (OCR), Natural Language Understanding (NLU), and decision-making engines, what is called Intelligent Process Automation (IPA).

Listed below you can find the advantages of implementing RPA:

  • Lower costs: The main argument for using RPA is the reduction of process costs. This does not mean that the employees previously involved in the process execution will later be released and no longer incur costs for them. Rather, RPA projects often aim to free these people from repetitive, time-consuming processes so that more capacity is available for other value-added activities.
  • Increased speed & productivity: Software robots are potentially very fast, and sometimes execution speed needs to be reduced to match the speed and latency of the application these robots are working on. Higher speed can result in shorter response times and an increase in the volume of tasks to be performed. Furthermore, one robot is equivalent to up to three full-time employees working an average of eight hours a day, while a robot can work up to 24 hours without a break.
  • Higher quality of services & greater accuracy: Because robots can work 24/7, the work capacity increases. Employees can therefore concentrate on direct customer contact and customer satisfaction, meaning better quality of services at higher speed. Software robots, unlike employees, never deviate from the defined steps to be taken during the execution of a task and therefore this also leads to higher compliance. With fewer human errors and greater compliance, the quality of work is far better. While it’s difficult to trace back to the point at which human error occurred, spotting errors in RPA is much easier. This is because every step in the automation process is recorded, making it quicker and easier to locate errors. Reducing or eliminating errors also means higher data accuracy, leading to better quality analyses and therefore better decision-making.
  • Time savings: The virtual workers not only complete large volumes of work in less time with precision, but they also help to save time in other ways. When there is a change, it is much easier and faster for the virtual workforce to adapt. It’s usually more difficult for people to learn and train in something new – they must break the old habit of performing repetitive tasks in a certain way.
  • Increased Employee Satisfaction: Since repetitive, possibly tedious tasks are now taken over by the virtual workforce, employees are not only relieved of this work, but can also produce higher quality work that utilizes human skills and strengths such as emotional intelligence, logical thinking or requires customer support. This way, RPA doesn’t take away any work. It frees employees from tedious, mindless work and gives them the opportunity to engage in more attractive activities.

Task automation- problems, challenges and mistakes

Task Automation- Struggles and solutions

Automation helps you save time by cutting out unnecessary steps and clearing the schedule of employees who regularly deal with repetitive tasks. Just like anything else in the world, automation has its downsides and comes with its challenges. Here are some of the most common struggles you may face and a few tips on how to avoid making mistakes.

1.The complexity of the workflow.

In order to automate your workflow efficiently, you need to understand your processes in their complexity. The entire process that you want to automate must be defined step-by-step so that it can reach your desired outcome. Otherwise, the automation cannot improve your workflow.

2. Overwhelming the system

It comes naturally to want to put your workflow software to work right away, but you may want to think about this twice. Speeding processes up can lead to confusion and disappointment. Our advice to you would be to first automate a clearly definable workflow, test it and once it proves itself successful, choose others and continue.

3. Lack of engagement and training of the team

Making the decision of changing workflow can be easy, but making  people you work with accept this change is the real struggle. Not taking your team on board is a mistake often made by businesses. You need to keep in mind that your team guarantees the success of the automation through phases like testing, implementation, training and adaptation.

Training is an important aspect of automation. Only by investing time in your staff’s training, can you achieve an increased efficiency. Our advice to you is to prepare a team of people that will be in charge of monitoring the whole process. They will be then able to mentor new members of staff and so you will always have assistance right around the corner.

4. Pushback from employees

When you decide to automate your workflow, be careful with the way you transmit this information to your employees. Some of them might think that their job is at risk and that they will be replaced by computers. This leads to lack of concentration and confusion. Make sure you show your employees that you care and help them understand that the role of automation is to supplement their job, not replace them. In case automation leads to jobs redundancy, consider offering them the opportunity to get trained for other positions.

5. Lack of supervision and follow-up

The key to controlling automation tasks is monitoring. The operators need to know what tasks are being performed successfully, and which tasks are failing. The challenge is derived by the wide variety of ways in which the individual tasks can be monitored. Longer-term follow-up is necessary to deal with unforeseen problems.

Business automation is a great way to improve performance, effectiveness and reduce costs. A carefully planned and well-implemented automation can push your business in the right direction. So don’t let small mistakes that can easily be avoided ruin your plan!

Project Management Automation

Project Management Automation

Do you want to assure the success of your project management processes? The automation is your solution.  

One of the main reasons you should choose to automate your project management system is to reduce the time invested. Project managers spend a lot of time doing their own tasks and overall coordinating the team and its activity. This is indeed an important aspect of his role, but it consumes valuable time, that can be spent to produce other results. A lot of administrative tasks need to be done several times and this takes considerable time and effort of professionals. But with intelligent automation, the majority of such efforts can be savedperforming tasks repetitively will no longer require manual efforts. Artificial intelligence will play a major role in performing these tasks and that will save the majority of managers’ time that they can use to perform other important tasks. 

The element of automation in the project management tool could alert managers on potential risk by using real-time project data analysis. Project management software programs with advanced automation help reduce errors and increase efficiency. Advanced software with exceptional features can help find out the errors to measure the quality of work at every stage of project management. A timely quality check of a project that involves sending notifications and emails on errors saves the time of an employee. 

While project managers are known for delegating tasks, your software can remove some of the work from that process. The project management software can identify patterns, such as which employees are most well-suited for which tasks, and delegate tasks to the appropriate people. As such, your project manager will have more time to do what she does best: manage projects. 

Automation is a great way to improve your team’s project management, no matter if you have one or more project managers. When built into your project management software, automation not only makes things easier and more organized but most of all, saves valuable time. It plays an important role in helping individuals streamline their work, have higher work satisfaction and lesser chances of burnouts due to mundane repetitive tasks. Automation is the key for enabling people to work smarter rather than harder.

Switch to Digitalization

Rapid Change: Switch to Digitalization

The Covid-19 spread has affected many aspects of our daily lives, including our health, workplace and free time. Radical changes have been made, especially in the global economy, by companies and businesses which struggled to survive during the lockdowns. One of the major changes was the switch to digitalization.

As the pandemic forced us to turn our home into a workplace and rely mostly on Internet to keep ourselves connected to the outside world, the business owners saw this as a clear message: keeping up with the development of new technologies is the only way to survive those times and minimize the losses. Thus, this has been a difficult decision for some, as not all companies can easily adapt their domain and activity to digitalization.  

But what is digitalization, how can we use it in our advantage and what are the obstacles? 

The best example of digitalization is our phone. There is an App for everything you need: transport, food, grocery shopping, accommodation, movies etc. The digital transformation and rapid development of technology forces traditional businesses to keep up with the change or be replaced by new companies, which implement innovative ideas. 

Physical products are being replaced by digital solutions and the focus is on networking and exchange of information between the companies and their customers. Services become more important, as goods can easily be replaced. This switch is just another step to a full digitalization. 

The digital transformation has its downsides. It varies from industry to industry and creates a gap between big companies and their smaller competition. The desire of clients for innovation will remain unbothered and the more they get accustomed to digital offers, the higher expectancies they will have. 

Another obstacle would be the creation of a professional digital team. Enterprises try their best to gather digital experts to bring their businesses and services online in the best form possible. The companies expect more efficient operational processes and a reduction of costs. Since there is a lot of work involved, the number of digital specialists needed is high. This led to a lack of specialists on the market, as the demand is bigger than the offer.  

We are set to help with the process of digitalizing your processes while always keeping an eye on your organizational culture.

Programming Languages- What you need to know!

The Basics of Programming Languages

What is a programming language?

This should definitely be one of the first questions you need to ask yourself if you are new to programming. You can think of programming as a set of instructions given to your computer, in order for it to execute certain commands. Computers use a binary string of 0 and 1. Programming languages are the tools which help people translate their instructions into a series of symbols, that make the computer understand the commands. 

Classification of the programming languages...

Low-Level

The low-level language is a language represented in 0 and 1 forms, which are machine instructions. This language is more difficult for humans to understand and implement, as it is error-prone. This kind of code cannot run on all computers, as it is not a portable language. Therefore, this type of language is also more time-consuming.

High-Level

The high-level language is a language that is closer to human languages and how they communicate. The programs written in a high-level language are independent of the type of computer. This language is user-friendly, time effective and portable, which makes it more accessible to programmers.

The most popular programming languages...

There are dozens of programming languages nowadays, which help you create all kinds of things, such us virtual realities, apps or games. But here is a list with the most popular ones: 

  • Python- high-level, general-purpose programming language with comprehensive, standard library.
  • JavaScript- one of the core technologies of World Wide Web. As a multi-paradigm language, JavaScript supports event-drivenfunctional, and imperative programming styles. It has application programming interfaces for working with text, dates, regular expressions, standard data structures.
  • Java- language that is accessible to beginners. Is can be used in different fields such as mobile applications, software and system development.
  • C#- is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm programming language.
  • C++- C++ is one of the most popular programming languages and is frequently used in virtual realities, software and game development, robotics, and scientific computing.
  • PHP- a widely-used server-side language. It is a great choice for building dynamic web applications and works well with databases and HTML.

IT- Where did all begin?

The Beginning of the IT World

Our world today can be easily defined by connections. Change is necessary and it happens without us even noticing it. But have you ever wondered how our connected world started in the first place? Well, connections exist since humanity itself exists, as we, social beings, depend on them. But where are the roots of communication and technology?

Our world today can be easily defined by connections. Change is necessary and it happens without us even noticing it. But have you ever wondered how our connected world started in the first place? Well, connections exist since humanity itself exists, as we, social beings, depend on them. But where are the roots of communication and technology?

The first form of written communication appeared during the Pre-mechanical age through petroglyphs- drawing on stones or the walls of caves. Those were the “ancestors” of papyrus and eventually paper. During those times, the abacus was also invented, being the first calculator. 

The Mechanical age brought us developments in the field of technology, as there was a rising interest in computation and information. The Pascaline computer was then invented. This computer could do mathematical equations such as addition, multiplication, subtraction.

Telecommunications has its roots in the Electromechanical age, when the telephone, radio and Morse code were invented. In this age the first large-scale automatic computer was invented in the US.

The Information age, the one we live in today, is described as the switch from traditional industry to a digitalized economy. The internet, which connects the computers with one another, was invented in 1969, but the invention of World Wide Web in 1989 made it accessible all over the world. 

Changes and the adaptation to society’s needs led people to develop this domain. It is a field that keeps growing and who knows in what direction it will continue to grow?

If you enjoy articles about the IT world, keep an eye on our website, because there is more news to come! We will approach subjects as programming languages and we will tackle the most important news that you, as a Techie, need to know!
