Robotic Process Automation for the Public Sector
Accelerate digital transformation, complete tasks 90% faster and help staff focus on critical work
With an annual global budget deficit in the public sector at 5% of global GDP, improvements in efficiency, compliance and risk mitigation are necessary. RPA can do all of that and more, while accelerating positive change without accruing additional costs. Thanks to the technology’s low barrier to entry, it can be implemented within weeks and picked up by staff with minimal instruction.
Scalability and resource allocation can be particularly difficult in the public sector, as certain processes (such as general ledger reconciliation or batch invoice processing) are highly variable and dependent on circumstances.
Many of the interactions between the public sector and individuals happen through forms and applications. Transferring data manually from a permit application to the agency’s systems is a time-consuming task that introduces an unnecessary risk of human error.
Maintaining documentation on employees and keeping it current is a challenging task, especially as the same has to be done for applicants and contractors. The risk of losing accuracy is high with manual data manipulation, especially when many changes are temporary.
Eliminate human error, maintain regulatory compliance, and help employees focus on critical tasks.
Take advantage of RPA’s high cost efficiency and fast ROI, saving 25-80% on current operating costs.
Deploy a digital workforce that operates 24/7, 365 days a year, and doesn’t make mistakes.
“Robotics process automation could be the key to speeding up government agencies’ recovery after the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a solution to backlogs thanks to 24/7 processes running in the background. Reports indicate that public service employees spend only 20% of their time on strategic tasks that require analytical thinking. Automation and process optimization can free up hours for each staff member, allowing them to focus on where they could have the most impact. Crucially, RPA can track changes in the system and ensure 100% data accuracy if set up properly.”
