Robotization, implemented internally in the company, is usually intended to create a large number of robots whose work should automate a significant amount of business processes and bring tangible benefits. To achieve a viable scale, the company needs a team that will create, manage and maintain the robots. What skills should you look for in your RPA team?

 

Key skills in your robotics department

  • Analytical thinking

Analytical thinking is the foundation in the robotics team and is needed at virtually every stage of robotization. The ability to analyse data and construct logical structures is an inherent element of the daily work done by the people who assess the robotic potential of business processes. Analytical thinking is also a must for their colleagues: RPA developers, testers, and administrators.

  • Problem-solving skills

The process of creating robots alone can pose many challenges for developers. They often have to try out various solutions before they find the right answer that ensures the robot will work correctly. The team must also react swiftly to changes in the process or applications so that the robotized processes run effectively and without any interruptions. In such situations the team members need to be resilient and determined to find solutions.

  • RPA knowledge

Although you can learn how to use RPA tools, if you want to robotize processes in your company, you will probably prefer to hire experts from the start. Their experience can help in completing projects, which, as with many other IT projects, can take a lot of time, when implemented in-house.

  • Business experience

While developing and maintaining robots, an RPA team works together with business departments. Previous business experience definitely helps team members to understand the robotized processes more deeply and to cooperate and communicate with other teams better.

  • Change management

This is a skill that will come in handy not only in a robotics team, but across the entire organisation. Well-though-out automation requires the engagement of the whole company and often asks for a change in the mindset. It is still believed that robots will take people’s jobs, even though in practice they relieve employees from tedious, usually disliked tasks. It is important to talk to teams, listen to their fears and support them throughout the implementation of robotization.


If you want to learn more about how robots can help your company, read the description of processes robotised by Digital Teammates. The description is a concise source of information about business purposes of robots and contains examples of already automated processes. You will learn what robots’ work looks like step by step and what assignments they are capable of completing. We hope that these examples will help you identify processes which can be automated to benefit you and your company.

Why Rent Robots? – Part 2: Work Quality12.09.2019 09:59:37In the previous article we discussed the benefits of renting a robot instead of hiring a human, with emphasis on the duration and costs of the recruiting and onboarding process. When renting a robot, this process takes 4 weeks on average, during which the company doesn’t have to make any investments. On the other hand, hiring a human employee might take over 3 months and includes costs of finding the right candidate and training them to work unassisted. In this article you will learn what other benefits a robot employee can bring. Czytaj całość
