Meta description: Looking for more targeted, efficient automation at scale? We’re your partners in mastering continuous development.
You may already be experimenting with ways to make your business work smarter, not harder. Automating every manual process — from copying and rekeying data to filling out forms and checking in with sales prospects — frees up your people and resources across the board. But, shifting the legwork to bots is rarely simple. If you want to leave the grind behind for more useful, rewarding tasks, there’s the question of how you’ll grow and maintain automation development. Stress? Downtime? They’re snapping at your heels as more bots come to life.
Over the last decade, we’ve dealt with many companies that have stalled or seen few benefits from badly planned automation. That’s why we’re here — to set off robotic process automation (RPA) on the right foot and keep it moving forward.
Often, it’s about optimizing processes before any automation has begun, but there’s much more to purposeful RPA that pays off. Let’s show you …
Robotic process automation is a significant challenge to organizations that don’t know what they should modernize first, or why, with a limited team for development and launch.
Often, we find that developers are tempted (or pressured) to chase huge ROI targets with their pilot robot straight out of the gate. This is a trap: probably the biggest we see. Instead of a sustainable robotic process automation program, you have a scattered collection of individual projects that can’t feed efficiency in the long run. Think of it like building a car, rather than a car factory.
Furthermore, that pilot bot should be easy to build for very small tasks; you don’t want to get ahead of yourself. If there is a large ROI bot on the table — which isn’t ideal — then it must be broken down into the smallest possible sub-bots.
RPA can encounter several other problems ahead of development and plenty more when it’s up and running. For example:
It’s rarely clear which processes to automate first: There are likely dozens and dozens of potential candidates within your existing workflow. Which of them are ripe for pilot projects? Why? Furthermore, is there a business process that can be left out entirely during modernization? Anything that doesn’t provide tangible business value should be cut from the move. Documenting processes is a great initial step to finding the simplest, most achievable tasks for a pilot project and beyond.
RPA bots should only be as complex as absolutely necessary, with concrete reasons to exist and improve the digital workforce. If they’re poorly strategized, maintained or updated, you may face significant trouble with automation. But, we can make change so much more manageable and fit for purpose.
At Lanshore, we make RPA simple. Our consulting service takes your business and vision into a proven roadmap we’ve refined time and again for countless clients. Step by step, we’ll guide you through a review and implementation program that makes sense, filling talent gaps while assessing each process for value and viability.
Broadly, we focus on three areas for improvement:
From fine-tuning your revenue cycles and reimbursement requests to tracking mileage, completing data sheets or auditing facility inspections, there’s a vast amount of automations to explore together. And, whatever solution we land on, we’ll stay flexible. Tomorrow’s plan isn’t cast in iron. Rather, we shape it around the evolving demands of your business. Lanshore consultants stay with you as robotic process automation and artificial intelligence scales alongside your goals for any market or industry.
Whether you need us to take over RPA development, support your teams or simply offer a roadmap, we’ll link up with any key stakeholders and provide rapid, in-depth insight on what to do next.
Here’s the template we like to lay down for robotic process automation consultancy:
First, we endeavor to learn as much as we can about your growth, revenue and market opportunities. This includes discussing the automation or process issues you’ve encountered so far.
Are you looking to scale faster and better? Alleviate more pressures on a department? Draw your services closer to leading practices or benchmarks? Provide more considerate, tailored support to your customer base? We’ll define the outcomes you rely on for success, teeing up an intelligent automation solution. Given the complexity of strategic launch and development, you might struggle to pin these outcomes down on your own.
Lanshore specialists will determine what’s working with your current system and repetitive task lists, as well as any risks you’re facing — for example, the leap to a new third-party RPA vendor with a steep learning curve, or missing best practices for the software development life cycle (SDLC). An RPA consultant then takes your future into account i.e., how we’ll measure and maintain improved performance. Think of it as a thorough gap analysis solution with more scope for what’s to come. This is important because, if an RPA partner doesn’t have a forward-looking program roadmap from day one, they will encounter just as many uncertainties as you will.
At this stage, we have information to bring the right platforms, vendors and technology to your attention. We use our experience to make implementation easy, taking over development ourselves if necessary. As an RPA developer, we test new bots and processes against the highest standards, while augmenting your team with business analysts and quality control experts.
Where an RPA program actually lives — desktops, email chains, charts, PowerPoints and other scattered sources of information and direction — tends to be another challenge Stakeholders have to fend for themselves if they want to determine what’s occurring or bound for fresh implementation. You also might be missing a roadmap to setup, which is meant to give development teams a good sense of any obstacles before they collide with them.
Our RPA center solves all of these concerns. Finally, you have a single, coherent place in which to strategize and stay updated on bot activity. This solution allows you to:
