The promise of freedom: Finding a competitive edge while removing the drudgery

The promise of freedom: Finding a competitive edge while removing the drudgery

By Vishal Vaidya

Robots on the assembly line were designed to free human beings from boring, repetitive work. Now, robotic process automation, or RPA, is being touted as freeing the back-office of the same boring, repetitive tasks. Vishal Vaidya, the director of professional services with Bits In Glass, sees robotics becoming more commonplace – and necessary – in the automation of process manufacturing.

In concert with what has been happening on the factory floor, Vaidya sees RPA taking off in all aspects of the industrial processing sector. “Within the manufacturing industry, RPA is most effective in automating crucial back-office processes like email and paperwork approvals, procurement tasks, supplier communication, inventory reporting, processing orders and payments, and more,” Vaidya says.
