Thought Leadership
Robotic arm

Focus on more important tasks by training Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software bots to perform the tedious, repetitive and manual workflows.

Robotic process automation can improve the efficiency of your processes, further embed digitization into your organization and enable employees to focus on higher value work. According to a Gartner CIO study conducted in 2021, the RPA segment continues its rapid growth trajectory, growing over 20% per year. From quickly changing legacy processes to helping you manage processes remotely, RPA can securely assist your credit union 24/7 from anywhere.

We have deepened our relationship with our long-standing partners, Fiserv and Microsoft, to provide the Canadian credit union system with two cloud-based RPA solutions. Keep on reading to find out which RPA offering is best suited to your credit union.

The Microsoft Power Platform is a low-code platform with smaller fragment automations that span Office 365, Azure, Dynamics 365 and standalone applications. The solution includes automation at scale, seamless and secure integration, accelerated productivity and intelligent automation.

The platform allows for innovation anywhere and unlocks value everywhere by utilizing the following apps:

  • Power BI (Business analytics)

In 2020, Microsoft acquired Softomotive to expand their Microsoft Power Automate capabilities, through its web and UI automation, interaction with legacy systems and terminals, Java applications as well as Citrix Automation. The combination of these two products addresses many needs in the market, driving the RPA experience to a completely different level with Power Automate Desktop.

The new Power Automate experience is a low-code/no-code, drag and drop approach with recorders on desktop and web. The platform also includes:

  • Advanced debugging features
  • Reusability of controls, images and functions
  • User and process collaboration through message boxes
  • Advanced error handling features
