Productivity of white-collar jobs improves

Scenes of industrial robots assembling products in factories instead of humans has become commonplace by now. On the other hand, as far as back-office operation is concerned, robots are still not utilized to the fullest extent. What amount of increase in white-collar workers' productivity can be achieved in a scenario where robots autonomously complete a workflow from reading paper documents and extracting relevant data all the way to inputting the results into an ERM system – without human intervention and on humans' behalf?

What is the meaning of Virtual Intellectual Workforce (Digital Labor)?

The effort to automate operations making it possible to perform tasks or even sophisticated work that has been considered to be only manageable by humans by using cognitive technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning is called RPA (Robotic Process Automation). In the sense that RPA can be a complementary tool to assist human workers, it can also be called a Virtual Intellectual Workforce (Digital Labor).

Significant cost reduction with RPA

It is now obvious that an automation of routine and repetitive tasks where human intervention used to be required is becoming a reality. However, contribution to increased quality and control by autonomous administration of sophisticated tasks using AI's overwhelming information processing power is also becoming possible.

Back-office operations demanding precision and speed when dealing with large-volume and repetitive processing and survey analyses treating huge amounts of data can greatly benefit from introducing RPA.

  • Cost reduction based on personnel cost difference and standardization:

    The limit is15to30%

  • Cost reduction using RPA:

    40to75% is feasible
