The effort and programming required to integrate legacy systems with newer software is often astronomical. One of the alternatives until now was manual integration, using an employee as a go-between between the older application and the newer one. However, legacy systems are difficult to use as they rarely have user friendly interfaces, resulting in errors from manual input.
Robotic Process Automation helps solve this problem. RPA is the perfect tool for the integration of legacy systems. The software bots use the frontend of applications, just like a human. Therefore, there is no need for resource-intensive backend integration. Also, robots do not need a user-friendly interface. They can work with any without mistakes, as long as they can access it.
The robots pull the right information from, and also write changes back into the legacy system, giving employees the required information for a process without the hassle of dealing with these older applications. Or RPA fulfills the process completely automatically: digital from start to finish.
The benefits are impressive: hugely increased processing speed and user friendliness as well as reduced error rates.
