Service constraints RPA should be applied to processes meeting certain suitability criteria including that they are high volume, rule-based and they run on stable underlying applications. RPA runs on the user interface of an application and requires access via the desktop to these applications. We would work with you to help to identify suitable RPA opportunities and to ensure the technical requirements are met.
System requirements
  • Secure connectivity to business applications, e.g. via VPN
  • User accounts provided for use by RPA bots (digital workers)

Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started We would organise workshops based on design thinking with the key business and technology stakeholders to review the opportunities for process automation and the success factors for delivering process automation effectively. Successful RPA solutions require close collaboration between business and technology, a focus on process design and agile delivery, and always involve a cultural dimension. These all align to Keytree’s strengths; we have experience defining and creating successful global Robotics Centres of Excellence that can help an organisation govern and manage the risks inherent in RPA and ensure business objectives are fully achieved.
