Post-Covid reality has proven to be a historic tragedy for humankind as well as the world economy. To combat the challenges of volatile markets and changing customer demands, business leaders are adapting to the ‘new normal’ way of doing business by transforming their business functions.

This ‘new normal’ approach is all about making your business more resilient by becoming  a technology-led intelligent enterprise. Business leaders are quickly enabling digital transformation by digitally transforming business processes through automation.

The rise of Solutions such as Next-gen SAP ERP Solutions, Business Intelligence Solutions, Cloud Hosting Solutions, Robotic Process Automation Processes – has successfully demonstrated how businesses can become even more profitable despite challenges.

In this article, we introduce the concept of automation, break down what digital transformation means for your business and how Robotic Process Automation takes your enterprise to the next level.

What is the difference between Digital Transformation and Automation?

Digital transformation and automation are used interchangeably; however, they have very different meanings within a business context.

Automation involves applying technologies to minimize human efforts and make business processes more efficient. On the other hand, digital transformation not only makes business processes more efficient, but also unlocks new value for businesses through constant innovation.

It can be said that Automation is the means to an end whereas Digital Transformation is the desired end.

In addition to automation and digital transformation, lately Robotic Process Automation has become a buzzword in business circles. Broadly speaking, Robotic Process Automation is a sophisticated approach to automating specific business processes using ‘software bots’.

Let’s dive deeper into understanding what Robotic Process Automation is and why it is becoming a buzzword post-pandemic.

What is Robotic Process Automation?

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) automates repetitive business tasks and augments human efforts into high value activities. RPA Software bots when integrated with your existing SAP ERP Solutions can offer the advantage of:
  • Improving workforce productivity by minimizing the scope of human errors
  • Achieving high ROI in optimal time of deployment
  • Supporting error-free remote working with cloud-based bots
  • Minimizing the complexity of core business processes
  • Augmenting employee efforts into creative problem-solving by taking care of mundane tasks
At VC ERP Consulting, as a successful implementation partner for SAP ERP Solutions & RPA, we have first-hand witnessed the power of RPA to transform productivity and increase the efficiency of your business operations.
