Happy 2019! It’s a new year of technological developments, business growth and ongoing transformation, and we’re excited about it! As the new year begins, your organization may be considering investing in new technology, like a robotic process automation (RPA) solution.
Welcome to the MetaViewer Blog
We love robotic process automation (RPA), and our customers have seen some serious success and ROI after implementing RPA technology. However, we also recognize that there are many RPA implementation projects that fail, or that don’t generate the expected ROI or efficiency gains. This does not mean that the technology is bad or that the vendor did not implement correctly. In fact, a failed RPA project can occur for a variety of reasons.

Either way, since it's not the weekend quite yet, let's examine the week and consider all the things you could have done instead of manual data entry.

You love submitting your expenses in the form of a spreadsheet, right? You know what I’m talking about – the Excel sheets with formulas that work about 43 percent of the time, your receipts (that you remembered to save) stapled to it and your fingers crossed that it gets routed to the right people and you get the correct reimbursement like, this year. So much fun, right?
