No, robots aren’t coming to steal your jobs. But they could definitely be swooping in to save them.
There’s a lot of discussion around the future of our workplace - especially as we teeter on the brink of a severe global recession that has the potential to compare to the 1930s Great Depression.
Yet negativity (and social distancing) aside, our workplaces are all moving towards one unifying factor: Automation.
In our never-ending quest to finish tasks as quickly and efficiently as possible, companies are adopting more ways to automate their processes. The latest, most impressive software advancement is Robotic Process Automation. RPA for short.
RPA is a software that uses artificial intelligence to mimic a lot of human user actions. This means that the robots, using advanced machine learning algorithms, can log into applications, move files or folders around, extract relevant data and even fill in forms on behalf of their master - I mean service provider.

A recent Gartner report predicts that the RPA market will reach $5B by 2024. This is because of the widespread adoption of RPA software by not just large tech firms, but SMEs and startups in almost any sector. And the results are promising. There is the possibility of a 30-200% increase in ROI in the first year.
People are cottoning on to the fact that an initial investment in RPA software can improve their work output, streamline tedious administration work, and increase the amount of money saved by removing staff from mundane work and allowing them to focus on growth and opportunity.
