Dublin, Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "2018 Robotic Process Automation Product and Market Report" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

There is great opportunity for vendors and end-user companies to find creative applications for a new generation of automation that is driving productivity improvements and innovation, and, is going to get smarter with each passing year.

Unlimited potential, quantifiable results

Robotic process automation (RPA) is bringing great value to the market, driving productivity improvements and innovation. RPA excels in automating routine, repetitive tasks in an organization, and today's bots can handle a growing number of front- and back-office and shared business activities services. As RPA technology gets better and incorporates assisted and unassisted machine learning, its capabilities will expand. With each passing year, robots will have the intelligence to do more and will take on additional responsibilities. As a result, the opportunity and addressable market for RPAs will continue to grow.

Automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are changing how companies operate, allowing them to re-imagine and re-invest in all aspects of their business. Despite fears that bots are replacing humans in the workplace, their arrival is actually creating a need for skilled workers who can provide RPA oversight functionality, reporting, and analytics, among other functions. RPA is also freeing up agents to attend to more complex and sensitive tasks, rather than low-level, routine activities. Companies will need to rethink and redefine the role of agent; transaction handling will be personalized and intelligently routed to a highly sophisticated agent who will be able to use servicing solutions to achieve optimal outcomes for the customer and the organization.
