Epitomising the trend towards automation and data exchange, Industry 4.0 is more than just a buzzword – from the recent research by McKinsey & Company*, the top performing companies focus much more on their digital capacities than the remaining players in the market. The pace of digital evolution is so fast that if you ignore the digital transformation trends driving Industry 4.0, you could end up being eliminated by the market.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has been considered as one of the key elements driving companies from Industry 3.0 to 4.0. To help companies unlock the door to Industry 4.0’s fully automated process method, Explora is proud to introduce our RPA services DEO program, aiming to assist clients to stay ahead with this transformative technology.

What is RPA, and how to apply it in your business?
“RPA is an automation technology which uses robots to mimic human tasks with process.” says Jason, Digital Transformation Lead of Explora Consulting.
He adds,“RPA has huge capacity, and it can be applied to a wide range of repetitive and rule- based tasks, such as data entry and scraping, form and data validation, approval process, billing and invoicing, procurement and re-ordering processes, operational decision making and even test automation.”
Investment VS Return: Is RPA worth investing in?
“Indeed, the development costs involved to configure a robot is low, and given all the business values RPA brings to a company, it is definitely worth- investing in.” says Jason.
He explains, “With less prone to error or typos incurred from human involvement in routine and repetitive tasks, RPA provides extreme accuracy, uniformity and consistency. Productivity can be enhanced with robots tirelessly working 24/7 without interruption, and the process cycle time is much faster comparing to the traditional manual processes.”
