Small businesses and entrepreneurs often struggle with resource constraints that can prevent them from reaching their full potential. Fortunately, new technologies such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) have emerged to help small-to-medium size enterprises (SMEs) make the most of limited resources and save time and money.
When it comes down to it, RPA is a type of software that helps automate manual tasks. It can automate anything from data entry and document processing to customer service, all with very little human intervention. SMEs now have access to the same automation capabilities that used to be available only for large corporations – an opportunity to achieve their goals faster!
Let’s look at some real examples of how RPA can help SMEs:
- Automated Supplier Data Entry into ERP:
- Example: Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) can leverage RPA to seamlessly integrate supplier data from various sources. For instance, RPA bots can automatically retrieve invoices and notifications from supplier emails stored in the company’s email system (e.g., Microsoft Outlook, Gmail or your existing email system). The extracted information can then be accurately input into a centralized system like an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, which may be hosted on the cloud (e.g., SMURPS, Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services). This streamlines the data entry process, reduces errors, and ensures real-time updates of inventory and financial data.
- Integration: Integration with email systems, cloud-based ERP, and data storage platforms like Microsoft OneDrive or Google Drive for archiving supplier documents.
- Prefilling Forms for Regulatory Compliance and Tax Filing:
- Example: SMEs often need to complete regulatory forms or tax filings accurately. RPA can automate this process by fetching data from internal systems such as the company’s financial records, which might be stored in a cloud-based accounting software like SMURPS ERP, QuickBooks Online or Xero. The RPA bots can then prefill these forms for regulatory compliance. This not only reduces errors but also ensures timely submissions.
- Integration: Integration with accounting software e.g. SMURPS ERP, cloud-based regulatory compliance platforms, and document management systems like Google Drive for storing completed forms securely.
- Automated Customer Service Tasks:
- Example: RPA can be utilized to enhance customer service by automating tasks like gathering customer feedback or responding to frequently asked questions. It can integrate with CRM systems (e.g., Salesforce) to access customer information and email systems (e.g., Microsoft Exchange) to manage customer inquiries efficiently. The RPA bots analyze customer queries, extract relevant data, and provide accurate responses faster than a human agent, improving customer satisfaction.
- Integration: Integration with CRM systems, email platforms, and customer feedback tools for a seamless customer service experience.
- Automated Data Validation and Duplicate Checks:
- Example: RPA can play a vital role in maintaining data integrity by automating data validation and duplicate checks across different systems. It can integrate with databases (e.g., MySQL or PostgreSQL), CRM systems (e.g., HubSpot), and cloud-based data quality tools to ensure data consistency and accuracy. The RPA bots can identify duplicate records or discrepancies, and if necessary, make corrections or flag issues before they disrupt business operations.
Integration: Integration with databases, CRM systems, and data quality tools to maintain data accuracy and consistency.
Incorporating RPA with these technical integrations not only streamlines operations but also ensures that data flows seamlessly between different systems. This not only reduces operational risks but also provides SMEs with a robust and efficient technical ecosystem for managing their business processes effectively.
