Robotics is intelligent automation

Robotic process automation (RPA) is a new, fast-growing technology. Due to the tremendous possibilities RPA offers, it is often referred to as the fourth industrial revolution: when automation takes care of repetitive routines, employees can focus on complex entities. Samlink is building up RPA solutions in co-operation with the best in business. One of the leading companies is UiPath. What is the co-operation all about and what does the future of RPA look like? Malina Platon, the Sales Director of UiPath, briefs us.

What is robotics all about?

The foremost mission of RPA is to free employees’ time for the more interesting and demanding tasks that require human intelligence. As automation takes over the routines, human resources can be allocated to strategic work, sales and customer service.

With RPA Samlink can offer automation as a service – which will improve both quality and efficiency. Concrete automation-based solutions can be anything from data analyses to billing and from processing orders to monitoring information. The benefits are improved cost efficiency, customer experience and employee satisfaction – all that is needed for growth and success.

How about the Samlink and UiPath co-operation?

UiPath is one of the leading RPA companies. Co-operation with Samlink has been fluent and smooth from the very beginning, because UiPath has experience in financial sector and its solutions are easy to approach license wise in comparison with competitors. UiPath offers technology, support and development – all that is needed in automation.

– Our very own UiPath Academy has offered Samlink professionals a hands-on RPA training including workshops and webinars. RPA training was the first step of the co-operation. On the second phase we are defining the business cases where automation can bring efficiency, Platon says.

What does the future of RPA look like?

– Our future roadmap shows that RPA is developing rapidly. Especially its cognitive features are evolving, which will make it even more intelligent e.g. faster and thus more efficient. For financial sector organizations, RPA can be implemented successfully. It all begins with the collaboration of business development, sales and IT, Platon explains.

When it comes to RPA, we have taken the very first steps. Already in the near future it will offer new kind of possibilities to focus on core business and outsource repetitive, tedious tasks for robotics.
