The ROI of Moving Automation from Back Office to Mission Areas
Featuring Chris Townsend, Area Vice President of Federal Sales at UiPath.
There’s a lot of human involvement that takes place in migrating data from these legacy systems into the new systems. We have a lot of federal employees that spend all day taking data from one system and loading it into another system because there’s no ability to aggregate or get those two systems to interface with one another.
RPA fills that gap where we can take data from a legacy platform and help migrate it to the new platform and do that in an automated way, to free up that employee so they can focus on servicing the constituents of the agencies or the agency mission, doing work that requires more thought rather than just taking data from one system to the other. We can do that with automation, really accelerate this move to digital modernization.
Your roll this out on every desktop in the organization and it just becomes a tool that you have available to you every day to be able to automate part of your workstream, and then if you develop an automation that has broad application across your organization, and you send it up and have it published and refined and send it out to everyone in your organization, the ROI becomes extremely compelling very quickly.
So, if you take a 50,000 employee government agency and save five minutes a day for each employee, it’s tens of millions of dollars a year in savings. Just five minutes a day, you automate one task that saves an employee five minutes a day in a 50,000 person agency, it’s an eight-figure annual productivity improvement. And again, we’re just scratching the surface on what we can do there.
