What is RPA as a Service?
RPA as a service is a business model which means that a service provider executes deployment of the RPA platform to assist customers in automating their repetitive, mundane tasks. One of the reasons businesses address outsourcing is the scalability potential brought by RPA technology. With a trusted RPA vendor which offers affordable costs, a managed service provider can grow both automation capabilities for their customers and revenues for their own business. Below we will reveal the benefits of the RPAaaS model in more detail.
Benefits of RPA-as-a-Service model for Managed Service Providers
Among the numerous benefits that RPA as a service model brings to Managed Service Providers, these are several of the most important:
Winning new markets
Due to the common prejudice that RPA is an expensive technology, not many businesses which are end-users implement automation. Provision of such services from a managed service provider is a great opportunity for the business to implement automation at a scope that is convenient for them, without large expenditures and complicated procedures. For MSPs, it is a great opportunity to solve daily customer challenges and to win new markets by providing new services.
Provision of RPA services means collaboration with a trusted RPA vendor with years of RPA practice and technology expertise. For those managed service providers who are in the beginning stages of the RPA implementation business, it is a great opportunity to become seasoned experts in RPA and provide premium services which have never been done before.
Enhanced scalability opportunities
The RPA-as-a-service model includes purchasing the technology to serve the client's operational excellence and optimization needs. By partnering with a suitable vendor, RPA Managed Service Providers ensure limitless scalability with minimal technology costs.
Top 3 use cases of RPA as a service by MSPs
Case #1: Internal troubleshooting
RPA is one of the best tools when it comes to trigger-based activities. Take advantage of bots that will take care of detecting infrastructure problems, and use them to send timely alerts and notifications by messages or emails to the stakeholders.
Case #2: System deployment
Application deployment, updates, tests and builds are common routines that while performed manually, may take countless hours. RPA can take on this burden and streamline your application deployment by up to 5 times.
Case #3: Hardware management
Server setup and maintenance are challenging tasks, especially when it comes to manual execution. RPA handles most of these server provisioning activities including OS, storage resources, and configuration management activities.
