What is an RPA bot?
An RPA bot is an outstanding digital solution for taking care of complex repetitive tasks – once it has ‘learned’ how to do so. As soon as the bot knows how to execute the process, it can do so whenever you want – for however long you want it to – free from the risk of human error.
RPA bots relieve human colleagues from having to carry out monotonous, time-consuming tasks, which usually offer little value to the enterprise and are generally quite boring to perform. With a digital buddy ready and willing to help, employees have more time on their hands to focus on high-value tasks that are more interesting, both personally and to the broader organisation.
The optimal solution for automation in SAP
SAP has invested heavily in creating an RPA solution that excels both within and outside the SAP environment. Let’s have a look at how SAP Intelligent RPA helps you to automate your digital landscape.
- First, the RPA provider with largest knowledge of SAP software is… SAP, surprise! By applying its understandably deep knowledge of its own software packages, SAP created dedicated connectors to SAP solutions such as S/4HANA and SAP Fiori.
- Secondly, Intelligent RPA is very good at looking ‘outside of the SAP box’. By integrating seamlessly with third-party software packages such as Microsoft Excel, PDF or even webpages via your browser; Intelligent RPA bots are capable of enriching the workdays of every colleague. This technology truly excels at combining third-party sources with SAP solutions, transforming SAP Intelligent RPA into an ideal all-round tool for automation with extra capabilities within SAP.
SAP makes automation via RPA: a walk in the park
With recent releases, SAP has greatly improved the ease of automating your processes via intelligent RPA. The tool is so simple to use that people without coding experience or technical knowledge can start automating. As a result, SAP Intelligent RPA is an enabling tool for citizen development, empowering end users to create automated flows themselves – while IT keeps its broader helicopter view.
Free pre-built processes: the SAP Intelligent RPA Store
Having the ability to create your own automated processes quickly is nice, but having access to pre-automated workflows is even better! SAP provides over 100 automated processes within its store, which mainly focusses on S/4HANA and ECC. However, the roadmap contains several automated processes featured in all core SAP software packages. An expected 500 to 1,000 new automated processes will be released throughout 2021 via the store.
To give you an automation jump start, Flexso has created an Accelerator Package that helps you implement three of the most valuable processes offered by the SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation Store. Over the course of twelve days, we help you determine ROI, activate your Intelligent RPA landscape and deploy the three flows with the highest returns.
