The 8

key use cases of Robotic Process Automation for every industry

The modern-day enterprise market is driven by evolution and innovation. Everything that can boost your team’s productivity, saves time and money while performing critical business operations, and assists your growth strategies is what is positive investment. Combined with the economic impact of the pandemic that businesses had to deal with, it is high time to leverage technologies to ensure resilience, profitability, and productivity. And this is where robotic process automation (RPA) comes into play.

In the past few years, robotic process automation has been gaining widespread momentum owing to the benefits it offers to teams, people, and business. Overall, RPA allows businesses to accomplish their full potential, implement automated protocols, and reimagine operations with minimal investments.

Statistics suggest that the RPA market is growing exponentially and is expected to reach 13.4 billion dollars in 2030, a steep rise from 2 billion dollars in 2021. This empowers businesses to implement different RPA use cases in varied genres and business functions and embark new opportunities.

What is Robotic Process Automation?

Before we talk about the key use cases of RPA, let’s briefly understand what this novel technology is all about. In simple words, RPA allows you to automate repetitive and mundane tasks that require too much human intervention in back office and front office. With RPA, you can create automated tasks to successfully complete business operations while freeing up your workforce to focus on more creative roles.

For example, you can automate data entry, invoice processing, data extraction, etc. processes that occur regularly but require too much human indulgence. Additional examples include automating tasks in different departments like Sales, HR, Marketing, Operations, etc. in different industries like banking, retail, and manufacturing.

As you integrate RPA with your existing IT infrastructure,

The key use cases of Robotic Process Automation


Here we talk about the key use cases or areas where you can implement RPA procedures. However, you can go overboard and look for areas in your business where you would benefit from automation and then go along running RPA architectures for it.

#1: 24/7 customer support

As a business, your primary goal is to sell and earn money. However, as you scale and grow, ensuring quick responses to your customers becomes a hassle. With automation, you can deliver expected results to your customers, sort queries as per their urgency, and let robots respond to the initial customer requests.

This automated system will segregate queries into different categories like tech, service, sales, finance, etc., which means that they will now be directed to the right department. Moreover, you no longer have to move requests from one executive to the other as the entire process is now automated and streamlined.

#2: Invoice processing

In the sales department, it is always difficult to keep track of the invoices you need to send for payments and those that you have to clear. If you handle a large volume of invoices, you know how this mundane task can lead to delayed or incorrect invoices. Then, you encounter challenges around different formats, consolidating information from various sources before preparing an invoice, and sending them across on the right dates. Moreover, you also have to keep a track of vendors who haven’t paid yet and send across timely reminders to them.

All this worry can be sorted with robotic process automation. You can automate the paper-based invoice format via OCR. Also, you can run rules with RPA to automate data collection, reconciliation errors, and boost decision-making for invoice processing. As you don’t need your human workforce to take care of invoices, they can now focus on other tasks at-hand.

#3: Comparing prices in bulk orders

Often, you buy raw materials in bulk to manufacture products or provide services. The cost of your purchases can impact the company’s revenue or profits, and then you have your staff researching online to make an informed decision. This research requires tedious hours, which is why you must automate this process to save time and make better purchasing decisions.

Integrating it with RPA, allows you to compare prices from different vendors along with their attributes and quality. This way, you can buy the best raw materials at the best possible prices.

#4: Storing and securing customer information

Businesses today deal with a magnanimous amount of data, all generated via their customers. One of the major problems you encounter is sorting, storing, and organizing this data in a proper format to ensure required accessibility. Robotic process automation can help you achieve this goal. You can design an RPA system which automatically categorizes customer data into name, address, contact information, purchase history, preferences, important dates like birthdays and anniversaries. This system will be available at the disposal of your customer care executives, salespersons, and other employees. You can even set rules and protocols to this system to ensure no one except the intended workforce views this database, hence securing your customer information.

Since you don’t have to enter this information manually, there is no doubt regarding its accuracy. Moreover, this frees your team from the mundane tasks, preserving their creative power for other jobs.

#5: Extracting data from different formats

The most pressing issue with organizations is that most data is stored in a haphazard manner. It can appear as handwritten notes or different excels or from an editable text. This is where your professionals struggle to find and read the correct information and store it into the system. However, through RPA’s optical character recognition technology, you can easily read information from different sources and seamlessly enter it to the system. Where your employees spent their 10-20% of their man hours, now they can direct all that time and efforts into something more productive.

#6: Assistance with BOM, data migration and ERP automation

RPA serves several use cases in the manufacturing industry. In fact, RPA has led to the automation of production units and associated tasks like product assembling, quality check, packaging, and back-end operations. Moreover, RPA has assisted manufacturing companies in registering 40% savings in operational costs.

  • Leveraging RPA, you can now easily create a bill of materials faster and accurately
  • Seamlessly migrate data from your legacy systems to the new ones, while ensuring time and cost savings.
  • Automate inventory management, account payable and receivable, and invoice management to boost efficiency.

#7: Improving customer experience in the insurance industry

Customer information is a treasure trove for insurance service providers. For serving customers with competitive experiences, the following are the use cases implemented:

  • RPA helps processing claims 75% faster than the traditional approach. Moreover, it eliminates preexisting issues around the quality, timeliness, and accuracy of the process.
  • Insurance automation accelerates the form registration process by 40%. The RPA induced artificially intelligent system automatically reduces workload and boosts customer satisfaction.
  • Insurance providers have to stay compliant with several standard and policies. These include the HIPAA privacy rules and PCI standards. Although the regulatory protocols can vary from one insurance provider to the other, but proper RPA strategies can help you automate notifications and updates.
  • RPA assists with risk mitigation by accurately processing data automatically from internal and external sources. RPA models in action troubleshoot all the current issues and make predictions for the future. This ensures faster and accurate delivery of work.

#8: Effortless banking solutions while saving operational costs

RPA in banking assists with reducing errors and human labour significantly. As per statistics, RPA reduces 30-70% of processing costs and turnaround time. The following are some noteworthy use cases of RPA in the banking industry:

  • RPA assists banks with several customer service requests from onboarding to verifying customer details, loan inquiry, etc. As all these processes are accomplished faster and accurately, it helps banks in maintaining customer loyalty.
  • The traditional account payable operations involved collecting invoices from vendors via OCR, validating the data, and then processing the payments. However, with RPA, this entire process is now automated, and the amount is credited to the account automatically. Moreover, RPA systems can also send out notifications to customers for required documents or for payments with superior accuracy
  • RPA also helps in fulfilling all the KYC related operations. Such a system can effectively gather customer information, validate, and process it with higher productivity and quality. As the errors around the same are reduced significantly, it results in round-the-clock process optimization.
  • An RPA system can effectively automate background checks and validation, speeding up the credit card dispatching process. The same goes with the scrutiny for mortgage. With RAP algorithms, you can boost process productivity and efficiency.
  • Banks are always under the threat of frauds and security breaches. Automating fraud detection processes will allow your systems to identify accounts that are likely to cause trouble and flag them.
