No New IT Infrastructure
Traditional IT projects usually meant that a company would have to swap out its old infrastructure with the new. With an IPA solution, this is no longer the case. A bank can simply implement an IPA solution into its current infrastructure and begin to reap the benefits almost immediately.
One unique feature of IPA is that it can take advantage of the native user interfaces of existing legacy systems. By doing this, the solution can perform automated tasks that make it far less invasive compared to other infrastructures.
The pandemic forced a lot of businesses to reevaluate their budgets and make necessary cuts to their spending. This is no different for banks. When IPA is implemented in different departments of a bank, different processes can be completed faster, even while the employees are away.
Reports say that an IPA solution can increase the quality and productivity of a given process by more than 70%. Although some IPA solutions will reduce headcount (mainly low-level employees doing the repetitive tasks) banks who incorporate IPA see it as an opportunity to help their existing employees grow their skills.
Digital banking now allows banks to reduce their need for paperwork since everything is online. IPA solutions allow a bank to scan documents quickly and effectively while also pulling data from the documents and analyzing them accordingly. Since IPA takes care of mundane tasks, human workers can focus on more creative or time-consuming work.
Improved Customer Experience
With banking taking such a digital turn, there is no longer a huge demand for bank tellers to speak with customers about common problems. IPA bots can analyze the challenges that customers are faced with, and then they can provide solutions. If an issue is too complicated for an IPA bot, it can alert a human employee who can spend more time fixing the problem. Additionally, as we’ve mentioned multiple times, IPA bots don’t stop working, meaning that customers will be more satisfied because their issues will be dealt with faster.
As you can see, IPA banking is incredibly important for the flow of both the bank and the customer. It speeds things up on both sides while also making processes faster and more efficient on both ends.
