ROBOTICS WILL CHANGE TODAY’S WORKPLACE AS DRAMATICALLY AS DID
THE MACHINES OF THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
CREATING VIRTUAL WORKFORCES
Robotics will soon be ubiquitous and, with the ‘bots’ coming, advantage lies with organisations that can unlock the
full potential of automation technologies. Facing relentless pressure to reduce costs, and with challenger start-ups
being fully automated by design, incumbents are driven to innovate their operating models to dramatically reduce
labour costs, improve productivity and increase the speed of innovation
Recent estimates hold that nearly 80 million jobs in the United States and 15 million jobs in the United
Kingdom are good candidates for automation. McKinsey estimates the financial sector has the technical potential
to automate activities taking up 43 percent of its workers’ time. We don’t, however, foresee an impending workforce
apocalypse. While RPA enables downsizing as low-end tasks are automated, this is often offset by workers released
to meet demand elsewhere, to more value-adding roles and by natural attrition
And the journey has begun, with organisations worldwide creating virtual workforces to fully digitise their processes:
o Using Blue Prism’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA), an international bank has automated a range of
processes saving over 1000 FTE. A national retail bank has automated over 130 business processes. Another
global tier 1 bank recently placed an order for >1000 software robots
o A global telco uses 160 robots to process up to 500,000 transactions each month, yielding a three-year return
on investment of between 650-800% and reducing turnaround times from days to just minutes
o It is reported that a third of global enterprises are active with RPA, significantly across processes long beset by
manual interventions, such as invoice processing and collections, as well as higher-value areas, such as
reporting analytics
DigiBlu are specialists in implementing RPA and creating virtual workforces. You may not know where to
start, and your end destination may not be fully defined, but we have the expertise to help you on your way: starting
small with a Pilot, drafting the roadmap, scaling fast and capturing the benefits of automation

THINK OF A SOFTWARE ROBOT AS A PERSON ON YOUR TEAM. TAKE A
REPETITIVE RULES-BASED TASK, MAP OUT THE BUSINESS PROCESS AND
ASSIGN THE ‘BOT’ TO MANAGE IT
WHAT IS ROBOTIC PROCESS AUTOMATION
A virtual workforce
controlled by business
operations teams
Emulates human
execution of repetitive
processes using
existing applications
Interacts with any
application or system
using non-invasive
techniques
o Automated solution
works 24/7/365
o Complete traceability of
every robotic action
and decision
o Enterprise scalability to
create a responsive
virtual workforce
o Increased consistency
and double-digit
reduction in error rates
o Provisioned, governed
and supported by IT
o ‘Trained’ (configured)
by business users
o Brings governance to
departmental tools and
point solutions
o Cuts data entry costs
by up to 70%
Mimics what people do by
autonomously logging on, capturing data
and orchestrating various applications
and systems
Smart software that enables rules-
based outcomes and formulae, applied
in seconds
Conducts high-volume, repeatable
tasks that humans find mundane, make
errors and take a long time to accomplish
Configured by operations employees
using a flow chart of the procedure. A
typical process can be configured to be
production strength and operational
within six-weeks
Operates multi-step tasks across
multiple systems to process transactions,
manipulate data, trigger responses and
send reports

HISTORICALLY, LABOUR HAS BEEN THROWN AT ISSUES THAT AROSE FROM PROBLEMS WITH PROCESSES AND APPLICATIONS
NOW, SOFTWARE ROBOTS CAN DO THE JOB – CHEAPER, FASTER AND BETTER
ROBOTIC PROCESS AUTOMATION SPANS GEOGRAPHIES, LINES OF BUSINESS
AND TECHNOLOGIES – AUTOMATING PROCESSES IN A NON-INVASIVE WAY

o Double data entry – simulates user rekeying of data from one system to another; data entry, copying
and pasting
o Rule-based decision-making – as long as decision matrices can be documented, then RPA can handle
them, making simple rules-based decisions, based on data or criteria, along the business process and
by exception, sending items for decisions by human workers
o Automated preparation of reports – e.g. for regulatory authorities; automates the extraction of data to
provide accurate and timely reports
o Information validation and auditing – reconciles and cross-references data between different systems
to validate and inspect information and provide compliance and auditing outputs
o Straight through processing – workflow enabled interactions; automatically enters inputs from source
systems into target systems, from trigger to completion
o ‘Virtual’ system integration – transfers data between disparate and legacy systems by connecting
them at the user interface level instead of implementing new data infrastructure and APIs
o Application migration – migrates application data, records and history as part of an upgrade or
migration project
RPA CAPTURES AND INTERPRETS EXISTING APPLICATIONS FOR PROCESSING A
TRANSACTION, MANIPULATING DATA, TRIGGERING RESPONSES AND
COMMUNICATING WITH OTHER DIGITAL SYSTEMS
TYPICAL USES OF RPA

BEYOND THE BENEFITS OF COST, SPEED AND QUALITY, ROBOTIC PROCESS
AUTOMATION ENABLES SCALABILITY, FLEXIBILITY AND RESPONSIVENESS
THE BENEFITS OF RPA
core benefits added value
o Human effort shifted to value adding tasks that involve interaction, judgment and
interpretation – improved job satisfaction; new value
o Rapid response and innovation enablement – fast automation of processes and
rapid integration of front-end digital technologies with back office legacy
environments: a potential lifesaver for incumbents struggling to keep pace with new
rivals
o Increased operational agility – robots can scale up and down and switch their tasks
according to demand. If requirements change, a robot can be trained quickly to
adapt, without the constraint of business silo or human resource issues and
associated training costs
o Improved compliance – especially in highly-regulated industries. RPA improves
control by providing consistent adherence to set rules. All tasks are tracked and
monitored to aid compliance evidencing and audit trails
o Improved customer experience – faster service delivery; 24 hour coverage; staff
freed-up for customer-facing roles
o Provides insight – RPA makes gathering and organising data easier so a company
can predict future outcomes and optimise their processes
o No Human Resource issues – robots don’t go sick, require performance reviews or
compensation increases and don’t depart for jobs with competitors
Cheaper
Better
Faster
o 4 x the processing speed
o Working 24 / 7 / 365
o 100% accuracy: no human errors,
no rework
o Fully audit-able and compliant
o A software robot costs much less
than a human worker and each
does the work of 3-5 FTEs
o Reported cost reductions range
from 35-80%

THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS AUTOMATION, WE RECOMMEND, IS A PILOT TO
ANSWER QUESTIONS AND GAIN STAKEHOLDER BUY-IN; STARTING BOTTOM UP
AND SHOWCASING THE BENEFITS
PILOT
Assess candidate processes
for rapid piloting in
development environment:
o Chose business area where
large no. of processes are
still handled manually
o Identify rules-based
processes with digital
triggers, high volumes (with
potential to release at least
3 FTE?), relatively few
system interfaces and
human exceptions
Identify transition principles
Establish leadership &
stakeholder engagement
Map the processes to
keystroke level (detailed
walkthrough)
o Activities
o Business decision rules
o Applications
o Inputs/ outputs
o Variations, exceptions
Get sign-off by Business
Owner
Establish baseline and agree
performance targets
Select target design and RPA
steps to minimise handovers
between people and robots
Build robots to perform the
processes in an automated
way
Use agile development and
on-going testing
Define interactions between
robot & systems (including
‘wait’ rules & others)
Define changes to staff roles
Document process automation
Demo / Showcase the
automated processes
(executive overview, demos,
video etc.)
Run test cases to identify and
capture exceptions
Engagement with IT, migrate
functionality to production
environment
Hand over of Process
Control Operation Guide for
on-going execution and support
of the RPA process

THE PILOT DEMONSTRATES THE EFFECTIVENESS OF RPA
THE OUTCOMES OF THE PILOT
Demonstrates the benefits that automation brings to the
selected processes and tasks
Proves the effectiveness of RPA technology – shows how
RPA works in situ with existing systems and how easy it is to use
Highlights the technical and capability requirements for full-
scale roll out and clarifies roles and responsibilities for the
automation programme
Demonstrates the low risk, ease and speed of implementation
Gets key stakeholders engaged, at the strategic (C-suite) and
operational levels (process owners and IT)
Delivers decent financial benefits for your initial outlay (i.e. in-
year payback)
Continues to deliver value after the initial implementation: a
fully functional process, expect 300-600% ROI over 3 years
Begins the strategic journey to the robotic workforce
THE PILOT HELPS GAIN MOMENTUM AND STAKEHOLDER BUY-IN SO BUSINESS OPERATIONS ASK,
“WHAT ELSE CAN WE AUTOMATE?”
12

HAVING PRIORITISED PROCESSES, YOU CAN SCALE FAST THROUGH ‘SPRINTS’
UNTIL RPA IS INSTITUTIONALISED IN THE ORGANISATION
STAGES IN THE AUTOMATION JOURNEY
o Establish sponsorship and governance
o Select initial processes and baseline
performance
o 1st sprint (the Pilot) – deliver initial
processes
o Demonstrate the benefits
o Identify and prioritise further processes
INITIALISE INDUSTRIALISE INSTITUTIONALISE
o Implement RPA in sprints
o Make organisational changes
o Capture benefits and showcase
successes
o Define vision and target operating model
for automation, plan transformation
journey
o Plan impact on people and organisation
o Baseline performance, build benefits
case and set CSFs and KPIs
o Implement the required infrastructure,
support model and core RPA team
o Establish demand pipeline
o Transformed, low-cost & high-
performance operating model
o RPA scaled across the enterprise
providing back-office and support
functions

PROCESS AUTOMATION USING BLUE PRISM
HAPPENS IN TWO STEPS. FIRST, A LIBRARY
OF TASKS (OBJECTS) IS BUILT…
OBJECT STUDIO
Objects model interactions between a person and a system,
for example:
o Launch application
o Log in
o Navigate
o Read / Write information
Objects are centrally stored for reuse across processes,
resulting in:
o Consistency and scalability
o Reduced modelling time for subsequent processes
o System changes only needing to be updated in one location
(instead of for each process)
DigiBlu provides a library of commonly used objects
(e.g. interactions with MS Office)
1515
© DigiBlu 2016
… SECONDLY, OBJECTS ARE LINKED
TOGETHER TO FORM PROCESSES
PROCESS STUDIO
Process Studio
is where the process logic (business rules) are modelled
Processes reference pre-built objects
to complete the process
Sub-processes can be built
to account for different variations in the main process
Process Studio includes Management Information reporting
to highlight areas for future improvement

IF ROBOTIC PROCESS AUTOMATION IS A GAME CHANGER, THEN DIGIBLU ARE
THE SPECIALISTS YOU’LL WANT IN YOUR WINNING TEAM
OUR CORE RPA SERVICES
‘Strategic’ RPA implementations
on an enterprise-scale for material
effect. Starting fast with a Pilot, we
work with you to plan and scale
automation towards the creation of a
highly flexible virtual workforce that
largely replaces the humans doing
routine operational tasks. This has
the potential to create a low-cost,
high performance organisation with a
markedly lower cost-to-income ratio
‘Tactical’ RPA implementations on
a standalone basis to achieve set
outcomes. Addressing specific pain
points – such as reconciliations or
remediation, for example – we help
you implement RPA to assist the
humans doing routine mundane
tasks, creating extra capacity,
smoothing the workload and
releasing workers to concentrate on
more value-adding tasks
RPA-enabled compliance
processes to ease the burden of
regulatory change. We provide
expert advice on the requirement,
conduct process gap analysis, map
processes and write business rules
and configure them in Blue Prism
for RPA-enabled execution. With
RPA, the execution of regulatory
change is quick, cost-efficient,
consistent and wholly auditable
