Step#3: Maximize The Impact of RPA by Choosing the Right Process That Can Give The Highest Benefits When Automated
Implementing RPA in your business process is an easy thing to do but choosing the right solution, giving the most impact in the process, is another story. Moreover, these kinds of tools are expensive.

Step#4: Buy-In Management
There is nothing wrong about implementing new process fast so you can move on to the next project. However, buy-in management is still essential for you if you happen to own a huge company.

Even though RPA can be operated best with less help from another department like IT, it is still important to let them know about it. IT is the foundation of your digital process and stakeholder because they are the one who approves major tech acquisitions.
Start asking questions like did our company used or buys this type of solution before, then refers it to the IT department, so they can check if that tool can be beneficial or not.
