With each passing day, RPA or Robotic Process Automation is accepted widely in the working sector. This concept of automation is gaining a lot of popularity because of the ease and efficiency it brings to the productivity of a business. But that’s only possible if it is handled accurately. But if not, it could create a lot of problems, thus failing to give satisfactory results. There can be cases in which the business teams have to face difficulty in the successful implementation of RPA and there are several reasons for it. Here are some of those reasons:
Shortage of skilled resources
No wonder, Robotic Process Automation is becoming more and more popular in businesses these days, due to the ease and efficiency acquired with it. But unfortunately, the market still lacks the skilled resources to operate RPA effectively. Thus, procuring the resources to effectively begin the work with the automation could be difficult for the businesses. This is why businesses have to struggle a bit to find the right professionals with knowledge about RPA and the understanding of operating it.
Inappropriately defined business continuity plan
The business projects should be planned in a way that when the Robotic Process Automation is set and deployed in the production then there should be no or minimum maintenance required through which a smooth delivery in the production can be ensured. But in case, there’s an issue in the business continuity plan, this will also get reflected in the automation processing. Surely when the business plans would be vaguely defined, the automation which is set according to it will also provide unreasonable results.
Incorrectly identified use cases
To get the business buy-in, it is highly necessary to pay special attention to the identification of the use cases when implementing the automation, through which good ROI can be acquired. Working on this pattern will help in the budget allocation for the next set of processes which are further to be automated. It will not only lead the business to produce a low ROI but would also bring no improvement in the process efficiency which might be expected. Thus, the complexity of use cases in automation plays a vital role in bringing a better ROI to the business.
Most of the businesses successfully take the right measures to adopt Robotic Process Automation (RPA) in the business, but when it comes to maintaining it after the implementation, most of the businesses fail in that. It is highly necessary to take care of the push backs that might be encountered after the deployment of the automation.
Not following the best practices
In the situations when the resources working with RPA aren’t able to follow the best practices of automation, it is quite hard to decode the logic. This will make it difficult for the other team members to understand the flow. In such situations, if any transition occurs, the new member would take more time to handle the work.
