Robotic Process Automation
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) uses a software platform which acts as a virtual employee to perform processes in the same way as a person does. The use of RPA is rapidly increasing as new tools emerge and employees are looking for jobs which are more strategic and meaningful. At Mazars, our experience with RPA means that we’ll get you up and running as quickly as possible, so that you can focus on your core role.
INNOVATION TO INCREASE EFFICIENCY, VALUE AND EMPLOYMENT SATISFACTION
RPA is technology which performs processes quickly and accurately, saving time so that employees can return back to the core of their roles and perform real value added work.
WHAT CAN RPA DO?
- Log into systems and navigate to specific screens
- Recieve emails and process attachments
- Copy information from one system into another
- Make calculations
- Inform users about outcome
- Follow predefined decision logic
- Run based on a Schedule or be triggered by an event
HOW CAN WE HELP?
Mazars has implemented many successful RPA projects using our innovative approach to identify processes for automation. We use the expertise in our RPA Centre of Excellence which gives us access to the latest technologies, trends and experiences from around the world. We can help across a range of projects including:
Proof of Concept (POC)
This is the first step in starting your RPA journey. POC involves analysis, design and implementation of one or a couple of processes to demonstrate RPA capabilities in your business. This provides an opportunity to test robots in real situations and environments and verify that it delivers to your needs and expectations. You will have a fully functional process automation in 4-6 weeks.
This type of engagement involves assessing processes, analysing data, facilitating workshops and calculating business cases to build a prioritised pipeline for process automation. It might include assessment of suitable RPA tools for your organisation as well.
Selection of RPA platform
Based on assessing your requirements and our extensive knowledge and market overview, we can advise you on selecting the right RPA tool for your business.
Full scale implementation
End-to-end delivery of RPA automation in your organisation includes analysis and optimisation of processes, preparation of procedures for robots, development and testing of RPA scripts and deployment to the live environment. Depending on the complexity, this usually takes 2-6 months to deliver.
Set-up of Centre of Excellence (CoE)
We can help you to build an RPA CoE within your organisation to ensure you are maximising the value delivered from RPA. This involves setting up the methodology, organisation, processes, roles and technologies to be used within the CoE, implementing the CoE and assuring quality of its delivery.
All of these types of projects can be combined with raising awareness of new technology among teams, training staff in process reengineering methods, conducting an impact study on your organisation and system integration architecture, and providing other change management tools and advisory.
