Simple financial projects can be easily done by RPA. Tasks like creating an expense report no longer require a human workforce. It is also good at matching up invoices to purchase orders.
2. Data Entry

Having RPA at work basically means you have a personal assistant that happens not to be a human being. Imagine all your emails are well-sorted when you check them in the mornings. No more neglected emergencies!
4. Competitive Research
Most shoppers and third-party merchants on shopping platforms often use repricing software that automates the time-consuming job of keeping up with the market. RPA can monitor, alert, and proactively reprice according to your instructions in real-time. It will make your organization a lot more competitive with less overhead.
5. Vendor/Customer/Employee Onboarding
Jobs that involve reams of paperwork, vetting and lengthy back-and-forth between your company and other parties would be perfect for RPA. With the help of technology, many parts of the job can be completed by an entirely automated onboarding process.
6. Vendor/Customer/Employee Maintenance

7. User Setup & Configuration
As for employee onboarding, there are a few things that need to be done from the IT side. The new employee needs help to log into their PC, email, network, etc. RPA can now automate the process, so staff can focus on more important tasks.
