Has office morale been low lately? Fewer and fewer business opportunities coming across your desk? Wondering how the competition is faring? Well, chances are they’re probably doing much better than you.

In fact, recent research shows that mid-market businesses have seen a recent spike in growth. Your rivals are ahead of you because they may be utilizing their resources in a more effective manner than you. Or perhaps, it’s because their employees are keeping things fresh with new, innovative ideas and spending more time maximizing profits and less time dealing with menial, repetitive work in a bleak office cubicle. According to John Kenneth,

“The most unfortunate people are those who must do the same thing over and over again, every minute of every day.”

Keeping your workers happy and customers satisfied is tantamount to ensuring that your business stays on top, and no one can dethrone a business like that.

Where do Mid-Market Organizations factor in?

Many businesses have begun to implement and adopt RPA, and it continues to see a robust adaptation by many organizations. Mid-market companies are the backbone of the economy and they are also in a state of constant rivalry and competition with other similar scale businesses. No one likes losing, and RPA is one of the most important pieces of the puzzle mid-market companies are using to turn the game on its head, and make sure they stand a fighting chance against rival businesses.

Why does RPA matter?

“53% of companies have already begun their RPA journey. What are YOU waiting for?”

That statistic alone should be enough to convince you to take RPA seriously. I mean, everyone knows that the very nature of a good business consists of being able to produce more, while being efficient, but that’s easier said than done. This is where RPA comes in. RPA isn’t just a way to make more cash but is also a way of lowering the costs and streamlining workflow. RPA can make things comprehensible, compact and does so with efficiency and accuracy. RPA also makes it entirely possible to automate repetitive and high- volume tasks with no errors or mistakes, hearing all these benefits, surely you realize the power this can bring to your workplace? A tireless, needless, efficient machine capable of completing never ending work, I mean what else could you possibly ask for?

However, things aren’t always as they seem, and some of you may want something that RPA cannot provide, which is an actual human mind. RPA is not capable of thinking on its own, rather, it can only ever do what it is told. And yes, while I wholeheartedly agree that a business needs a lot more than automation of tasks and the benefits that it brings to be successful. Simply doing repetitive work isn’t enough to change things entirely, but there is another side to RPA.

Before I delve further into this, we can all surely agree that being innovative and coming up with creative ideas to evolve your business and stay fresh is also a core aspect of a good business. Personally, I fully believe that when employees and employers can turn their attention away from dull every-day tasks and engage in more meaningful work, each and every individual is capable of excelling in their own regard. As Ian Hutchinson once said,

“Employee engagement is an investment we make for the privilege of staying in business.”

This is the other side to RPA. By eliminating the need to do ‘dull every-day tasks’, you remove staleness and rigidness from the work environment. While robots cannot think on their own, they can do the grunt work instead of the bright human minds you have working for you. Learning to utilize your employee’s strengths is crucial to growing your business.

Benefits of using RPA

There are many benefits that led to mid-market companies employing the use of RPA, such as

Why do Mid-Market businesses benefit the most out of RPA?

RPA doesn’t bring all these benefits just to mid-market businesses, it gives these benefits to pretty much every single business on the block. The reason as to why mid-market businesses are in a better place to gain from RPA, is simply because of the fact that these benefits barely do anything for larger corporations, and don’t allow smaller corporations to
use them properly. Smaller businesses absolutely cannot afford to take risks or experiment with different strategies or change the way things work, and larger corporations can just use their bigger budgets to deal with any obstacles in the way.
It’s a win-win for mid-market businesses, as the competitors will remain the same for them no matter the situation, but now, they can actually tap into their true potential and bring out their best. The evolution of a business is beneficial for virtually everyone, even if it is a rival.

The Future of RPA

RPA is rapidly becoming an important part of the future of any business, not just mid-market ones and mid-market businesses have made no mistake in choosing to bet on the most reliable horse in the race. Gone are the days of outsourcing work to third party vendors, who’d often deliver unreliable and shoddy work and leave you to deal with all the hassle. Gone are the days of manually slaving away at your workstation for hours on end. In my eyes, RPA is nothing short of a revolutionary step forward into digitization, and an important step all companies should definitely be taking.
