What do RPA tools do?

Our FastPath robots are capable of copying and perfecting many–but still not all human user repetitive actions. 

The volume, repetition and predictability are the keywords in RPA robotics. Because any high-volume, repetitive and business-rules-driven processes, are needing automation.

RPA tools works alongside existing IT infrastructure; it just has to be trained on how to use it. This is an important advantage for businesses using legacy systems. It interfaces with front end infrastructure and uses the exact graphic user interface (GUI) that individual workers would use to complete a job, ensuring that the IT infrastructure does not need to be altered to accommodate the RPA software, therefore keeping costs to a minimum.

Frequently asked questions about RPA

Many analyzes were published in the last years regarding the impact of RPA robotics on the entire global business landscape and the influence that RPA technology will have on the workforce. With any new technology, RPA tools will not be completely understood, and projects won’t make the best use of the RPA technology. 

This question can be answered by briefly explaining RPA. RPA is about software robots that can take over repetitive, simple tasks from humans. Human actions such as entering, retyping, or copying information are examples of RPA processes that can be automated. These tasks can be performed faster, more accurately, and of higher quality by bots than human beings. These benefits include higher customer satisfaction and employee satisfaction, lower processing times, and lower work capacity.

RPA can be used to increase work capacity for many tasks. This allows employees to focus their time on the tasks they are passionate about and can add more value. You optimize your resources and ensure that all tasks are completed at a higher level of quality and cost-effectiveness.

RPA implementation can have a few challenges. Here are some of the most common:

  • Onboarding and employee resistance to technology: Any technology implementation can cause stress for employees. RPA is not the only case where automation can be seen as a layoff. This could lead to some resistance to adoption.
  • Selecting the proper process: It’s crucial to identify which suitable processes allow automation to run smoothly. This is a complex task that requires a thorough analysis. Don’t rush to implement, as it could lead to failure.
  • Setting realistic expectations for RPA: Companies need to be aware of the limitations of RPA and realize that RPA won’t fix broken processes.


RPA and AI are often referred to in the same conversation. The ideal combination of RPA and AI is RPA/AI. Collaboration between AI and RPA expands and enhances the possibilities. Every task can be learned. RPA is unable to interpret all of these processes by itself. Combining the two allows RPA to extend its reach and improve its ability to automize and map business processes.

Your employees will naturally be shocked to hear that a robot takes over some of their tasks. In reality, robots only take over work that employees enjoy the least. These are the repetitive and easy tasks to do, which are less likely to motivate them. These tasks can be eliminated, which gives employees more time to do fun and challenging work. Employees can try RPA and see the potential benefits.

Many fear that some widespread removal of jobs will happen as a consequence of large-scale RPA tools adoption. There’s no denying that some jobs will be replaced by RPA – the most likely being data entry positions. But there is a wide selection of job roles that may emerge thanks to RPA. Historically, new technologies have almost always led to the creation of more jobs; and the widespread incorporation of RPA will do the same. By way of instance, RPA technology and RPA programmers are roles that would not exist without technology. 

The perceived drawbacks of new RPA technology are that it requires specialists to operate it, and it often fails to be backwardly compatible. RPA software, however, can work more readily with non-technical users and legacy systems than was previously possible.

RPA is often cheaper to compliment the existing infrastructure than conventional automation as a result of its capacity to operate alongside IT infrastructure that’s already in place. With RPA, company leaders will not have to plan large expenses for infrastructure remodeling or outsourcing manual processing.

There are loads of advantages that RPA can bring to cybersecurity. The business must not overlook the possible risks. Like many technologies, the misuse of information -the sort of sensitive data applications robots are privy to – is a significant security concern. Issues can come in the shape of rouge developers who programmed applications robots malware, adware, Trojans, and hackers. Diligent businesses will incorporate additional cybersecurity measures, which may involve data encryption and role-based access to confidential information.
