How RPA and ChatGPT can push automation to a new height?

“In recent years, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has gained significant traction in the business world as a way to automate repetitive and time-consuming tasks. RPA uses software robots or “bots” to perform tasks that were previously performed by humans, such as data entry, file organization, and report generation. As technology continues to evolve, companies are exploring new ways to optimize their business processes and improve their bottom line. One area of innovation that is gaining popularity is the integration of RPA with artificial intelligence (AI) tools, such as Chatbots and GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) language models. In this article, we will explore the benefits of combining RPA with ChatGPT and how this can revolutionize the way businesses operate.”

Guess what, the paragraph above is completely authored by ChatGPT by asking ChatGPT to help in starting this article. Isn’t it impressive? If you are still not familiar with what is ChatGPT? ChatGPT is actually an artificial intelligent chatbot that was released in November 2022 which set off tons of discussions even until today. It’s probably one of the most advanced AI models in natural language processing and it is outstanding in the way that it can interact in a conversational format like humans. The capabilities of creating content like articles, research papers and programming coding, sentiment analysis and many others definitely make it even more fabulous.

Have you ever thought of putting both RPA and ChatGPT together? Combining both these technologies is going to create a new dimension in automation. In this article, we are going to explore the areas where RPA and ChatGPT are potentially collaborating.

Understanding and interpreting user input

The capability of ChatGPT in understanding and processing input based on natural language is one of its key features and is useful in enhancing the entire automation experience.

While chatbots are widely available nowadays, however, most chatbots are lack of “intelligence” in it, where they only responded based on the specific keywords or commands as how it was designed. With ChatGPT, it brings in the possibility of more human-like communication, and the sentiment analysis capability in ChatGPT enables real-time monitoring of customer’s feedback and response accordingly, which improves the overall experience in customer interaction.

For example, ChatGPT can be integrated with RPA in creating smart assistance within a company that has the capability in understanding employees’ questions or requests, and then use RPA technologies to trigger relevant activities to answer the questions or requests.

Taking HR as an example, ChatGPT and RPA can be integrated to provide end-to-end automation for HR daily processes, like utilising RPA in automated onboarding processes, and ChatGPT to provide real-time support regarding employee onboarding process, which significantly improves the overall efficiency by reducing the necessity in relying on HR executive in handling these requests.

Customer Interaction

Chatbot is currently widely utilised in the market to enable customer interaction, but generally it is happening in a monotonous way. With ChatGPT, it can improve the overall experience in customer interaction. Besides the natural language processing capability, the sentimental analysis capability enables real-time monitoring of customer’s feedback and response accordingly. By combining both ChatGPT and RPA in analyzing customer sentiment, it enables businesses to gain insights into customer’s needs and preferences, and allows businesses to personalize their interactions with customers, creating a much more humanize communication.

Improved / Increase Customer Interaction

Integrating ChatGPT with RPA technologies can enable automated customer service via chatbot interface. ChatGPT can be utilised in managing customer routine inquiries, and RPA technologies to automate backend processes like order processing and account management. This enables companies in providing rapid and effective service to consumers without any human agents. This is very helpful to industries that deal with plenty of customer services, and the human-like interaction and instant service will improve customer satisfaction and build loyalty, at the same time increasing cost-effectiveness and efficiency in business operations.

Better Analysis and Decision Making

It is not strange that business utilize RPA in supporting data analysis process as it increases the overall efficiency, but collaboration between RPA and ChatGPT can help in better analysis and decision making. RPA can collect data from various sources like websites, databases, spreadsheets, documents etc. While RPA is not effective in unstructured data, this is where ChatGPT can be utilised in supporting this area, like for example customer comments or social media comments where it reflects customer sentiment.

With the ability to analyse both structured and unstructured data, RPA and ChatGPT can provide a more comprehensive view of data and insights that would be difficult to identify manually, allowing business to make data-driven decisions and optimize their processes based on real-time information.

Generating summaries and reports automatically

RPA and ChatGPT can both be utilised in automate the report generating process, which is traditionally a labour-intensive task. RPA can be used to automate the data collecting process, like logging into multiple systems to extract data and automatically generate the report with the collected data. With the aid of ChatGPT, it can automatically analyse the collected data and generate summaries or insights based on data. Combining both RPA and ChatGPT potentially further reduces the time required in report generation by leveraging the ability to process a large amount of data quickly and accurately, and this benefits industries where there is a need for extensive data analysis and reporting.

ChatGPT is an innovative technology, and by combining with RPA, it potentially revolutionizes business operations and customer experiences by offering superior customer service, more effective decision making, higher cost saving, making these the major differentiator among competitors and staying ahead in the competition, and at the same time empowering human teams to focus on tasks that require human intelligence, creativity and strategy.
