Maximizing the Automation Potential in BPO Industry
A framework-led approach to deploying automation is the need of the hour
Since its inception, the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry has implemented automation, but only to a limited extent and that too, tactically. Most enterprises aimed to increase overall efficiency and reduce reliance on manual processes when they sought to automate their operations. Back-office activities such as email generation, and processing server logs tend to fall under the radar but they provide crucial support to billion-dollar businesses.
Despite BPOs generating USD 25 billion in 2017, the unimportance attached to their work has affected how automation has been implemented in BPO processes. This has resulted in a fragmented approach to automation that hasn’t made much of a difference to customer experience. For the BPO industry, an effective RPA framework designed as an assembly-based model will:
- Allow employees to focus on core business activities
- Allow developing and testing of solutions in tandem
- Increase throughput
- Provide extensive reports to customers at every stage
