Intelligent Automation

Intelligent automation (IA) plays an important role in the constantly changing business world: it is an innovative technology that makes it possible to combine human expertise with artificial intelligence (AI) in order to efficiently optimize tasks, workflows and processes. Intelligent automation has the potential to fundamentally change business processes. At ExB, we recognize this opportunity and would therefore like to introduce you to the concept of intelligent automation in a practical way.

Intelligent auto­mation as an inno­vation in cor­porate manage­ment

Business processes have been experiencing a transformative era for some time now, driven by intelligent automation (IA). The future of corporate and business processes is characterized by this groundbreaking technology. This innovative approach combines robotic process automation technologies and seamlessly integrates them with Artificial Intelligence (AI) – all with minimal human intervention.

IA vs. RPA: What are the differences and similarities?

Intelligent Automation (IA) and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) are two approaches to increasing efficiency in companies. However, they have different focuses and areas of application: While RPA focuses on the automation of predefined, rule-based processes, IA strives to merge robotic process automation with the cognitive power of artificial intelligence. In practice, this means that IA can recognize patterns, learn from data and make decisions. Intelligent automation goes beyond traditional automation: it can analyze data, recognize patterns and gain insights from them. This analysis can form the basis for well-founded business decisions and provide strategic direction.

Advantages of intelligent automation

Intelligent automation offers a wide range of benefits that enable companies to operate more efficiently, flexibly and innovatively. The most important benefits include the following:

Increased efficiency: IA enables tasks to be completed faster and without errors.

Cost savings: Costs are reduced due to minimized use of resources and less manual intervention.

Scalability: The technology can be easily scaled to meet increasing requirements.

Precision: The use of advanced technologies minimizes error rates.

Improved customer experience: Customer satisfaction increases with the use of IA, as requests can be processed faster and more accurately.

Compliance: IA helps to comply with guidelines and regulations and supports the guarantee of sector and industry standards.

Innovation: The implementation of modern technologies makes companies more competitive and future-proof.

One platform,
endless possibilities.

Areas of application and success factors of IA

IA can be used in a variety of industries and fundamentally change processes. An exemplary area of application for AI can be found in finance, where processes such as invoice processing are automated with IA. By quickly analyzing large amounts of data, companies can not only make informed decisions, but also improve the customer experience. Another important field of application is the logistics sector, for example. Here, IA can be used to successfully optimize supply chain processes and, among other things, accurately forecast stock levels and monitor deliveries in real time.

Despite the numerous advantages offered by AI, implementation can also present challenges. These include finding the right balance between human interaction and automation. In addition, with most AI solutions, targeted training of employees in their use is also essential.

Document processing

Automation, cloud computing, robotics and artificial intelligence characterise the use of new technologies. Robotic process automation (RPA) in particular is growing due to its easy integration and applicability in various business areas. In contrast to physical industrial robots, RPA automates business processes and tasks with the help of software robots or bots. These emulate human interactions with the user interface and perform tasks in computer systems. RPA systems can automate repetitive, rule-based tasks that are normally performed by employees.

Process automation

Workflow automation is the key to efficient business processes: The approach describes the use of tech­no­logies to auto­matize work­processes. The technologies, which are often AI-based, enable the seamless inte­gration, execution and monitoring of tasks and steps within a work­flow. The main goal of work­flow auto­mation is to identify work­tasks that can be auto­mati­ed with tools. This leads to faster, more precise execution of tasks, which increases efficiency and productivity.

Document processing

Data is the fuel of our digital world. With the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), efficient data extraction is more crucial than ever. Data extraction enables the processing of unstructured information and improves various operational processes. As a pioneer in the field of intelligent, AI-based document processing, we would like to offer you a comprehensive insight into the topic of data extraction and answer the most important questions below.
