What is Business Process Automation?

Business process automation (BPA) uses advanced technologies to automate business operations with minimal human input. Business processes are activities used to achieve organizational goals such as producing products or assisting new employees or attracting new customers.

Business processes often encompass many business areas and often start with a specific action. In onboarding employees, the system triggers predefined workflow steps e.g. sending a welcome message, configuring security credentials, or configuring payment information.

Automating processes works well on scale. In other words, the more complicated the tasks are the more opportunities they offer for automated tasks.

Looking for a way to take advantage of most of your technology stack? Business automation could be the answer. From leveraging tools like Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to enhancing workflow automation with a process bot, LBMC Technology Solutions can help you gain hyper-efficiency with an automation solution in almost any area of your business.

Benefits of business process automation

What is meant by business process automation?

Business Process Automation (BPA) is a process that automates repeatable multi-step transactions. Unlike many automated systems, the BPA solution has a complex connection to multiple business-specific IT systems that are specifically customized for each company’s business needs – for example.

Business Automating is used in business applications to automate repetitive tasks, thereby allowing workers to work in a more profitable way. These are BPAs, robotic process automation, or AI-powered automation.

Business Process Automation Subsets

There are multiple subsets of Business Process Automation that all feed into it. Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Intelligent Automation (IA), Low code/no code development, and power platforms are all standalone processes that feed into Business Process Automation.

Though often confused as the same thing any of the above-mentioned subsets helps with a singular task where as BPA is the automation of several aspects of the end-to-end processes and it is designed for business models and optimized and orchestrated workflow systems.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

What is RPA?

RPA stands for Robotic Process Automation, a technology that enables the automation of repetitive, rule-based tasks in a business process. RPA uses software robots to perform tasks that are normally done by humans, by automating the interaction between applications, data, and people.

The benefits of RPA include increased efficiency and productivity, reduced errors, lower costs, improved compliance and governance, and enhanced customer experience. Just a few examples of RPA applications include data entry, invoicing & purchase order management, claims processing, HR processes like employee onboarding, customer service, and supply chain management.

What Can RPA do?

You might find yourself asking, what are the differences between RPA and traditional automation? Traditional automation relies on structured data and pre-defined processes, while RPA is designed to handle unstructured data and can be easily adapted to changing processes. With many choices on the market today, many businesses ask how to choose the right RPA tool or RPA software. Choosing the right RPA tool or RPA software depends on the organization’s specific requirements, such as the scale of automation, complexity of processes, and integration with existing systems.

Intelligent Automation (IA)

What is Intelligent Automation? 

Intelligent automation is the combination of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and robotic process automation. These technologies enable businesses to automate repetitive, manual tasks, and to make data-driven decisions, without human intervention. By implementing intelligent automation, businesses can reduce errors, increase productivity, and achieve significant cost savings.

At its core, intelligent automation is all about optimizing business processes. Whether it’s finance, HR, marketing, or any other department, intelligent automation can help businesses to streamline workflows, increase accuracy, and reduce time-consuming tasks. With the ability to automate repetitive tasks, employees can focus on more important tasks, and collaborate on high-value initiatives.

What can Intelligent Automation Do?

Low Code/No Code Development

What is Low-Code / No-Code Automation Software?

Low-code and no-code software development platforms have become increasingly popular in recent years. These platforms allow developers to create complex applications and workflows without having to write extensive lines of code. Instead, these platforms use visual development tools to create a graphical representation of the application or workflow, which can then be modified and manipulated by non-technical users. In this blog post, we will define low-code and no-code software, provide several examples, and explore the benefits and use cases of these platforms.

Low-code platforms are those that require minimal coding, often using drag-and-drop tools to create applications, while no-code platforms require no coding at all. Instead, no-code platforms rely on pre-built modules, templates, and workflows to create applications quickly and easily.

Low-code / no-code software refers to a type of application development that relies on visual interfaces and pre-built modules to create applications or workflows.
