Advanced technologies such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) are revolutionizing business workflow through digitization. RPA replicates tasks that are repetitive and reoccurring in nature, boosting efficiency and enhancing productivity.
Canon’s Antelope Enterprise business process platform incorporates RPA technology to automatically refer to source databases to validate imported data and ensure accuracy. With RPA technology, daily, repetitive, time-consuming tasks can be automated, freeing resources to be invested in more valuable business areas.
RPA can be widely adopted in various business operations. One application example is the automation of payment settlement for accounts departments. RPA helps monitor email inboxes and download the invoices sent from vendors automatically. It can then capture data from the invoices by OCR technology. By utilizing the data captured, for example supplier name, RPA can then refer to the ERP systems to get the supplier code. By combining the data, RPA helps import data into the Antelope to trigger approval workflow, while saving the record and invoice copy in Antelope Enterprise or customers’ existing document management solution at the same time.
