How RPA Can Help Small Business Take On and Challenge Bigger Businesses

The Biblical story of David and Goliath in which a shepherd boy beats a giant warrior in single combat, has become part of our vocabulary of underdog stories and improbable victories. Like David, smaller businesses have been trying to take on their Goliaths and, in many cases, have been effective in doing so by virtue of them being nimble and flexible in their quest for success. Effective systems and processes go a long way in creating client centric businesses, but smaller organisations do face a challenge in how they adopt modern disruptive technology due to the sheer costs and technical integration involved to create a seamless technical experience. To a large extent this problem is resolved by employing people to process information and data between multiple systems. This is not only an expensive exercise for smaller businesses but also an activity that the workforce does not enjoy, given that it is manual, repetitive and not challenging. Industry research by McKinsey suggests that every worker who processes information and data on a daily basis spend between 30% to 50% doing tasks that are manual, repetitive and mundane in nature. In a rapidly evolving battlefield of business and technology, it is time to re-evaluate small business’ weapon of choice to take on their Goliath.

The New York Times bestselling author Malcolm Galdwell, suggests that the first mistake in interpreting the ancient story is underestimating the one weapon David did have – his sling. In ancient warfare, a slinger was part of the artillery, but a sling was also used by shepherds like David to protect their flock from dangerous wild animals. David walked up to Goliath, unencumbered by armour and steel but packing, by Gladwell’s estimation, ‘the stopping power of a [.45 caliber] handgun.’

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the modern day ‘sling’ that is needed to combat the challenges of mundane, repetitive and time-consuming tasks that are inevitable in the growth and success of a business. This technology mimics the actions of processing information and data between multiple systems in less time than it would take for a person.
