Three Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) Benefits Propelling the Enterprise

Updated: Apr 30, 2019

In terms of disruptive emerging technology, intelligent process automation (IPA) is certainly one to watch. Don’t just take our word for it though. The folks at McKinsey are heralding that “IPA is the engine at the core of the next-generation operating model!” and Statista, measured that more than half of business leaders today expect to implement automation in the next couple of years. The studies don’t lie. The IPA market is estimated to grow at a significant rate from $0.8 Billion in 2017 to over $8.3 Billion by end of 2023.


And why not? Consider that outdated manual processes impede scale, waste people resources and create inefficiencies and errors that derail performance and profitability. IPA enables businesses to perform much more diverse and complex activities without the need for mundane and unnecessary human intervention, while delivering some amazing benefits.


Here are our three favorites:


Speed & Efficiency

As error-prone business process operations shift from humans to machines or software automation, the operation will run far more smoothly and efficiently. Work is performed faster, consistently and with more accuracy, resulting in greater productivity and higher service levels.
