Robotic process automation metrics: How to measure success

You’ve identified a business process to streamline with robotic process automation and decide it’s time to move forward. As with any significant undertaking, you need to define how to measure your results. Assuming things go well and you’re beginning to achieve your intended goals, measurement will also be key to optimizing for additional gains – and bolstering the ongoing business case for automating additional processes, especially if you face skeptics in your organization. How to measure the ROI of RPA. Antony Edwards, COO at Eggplant, points out that RPA ultimately comes down to replacing manual, repetitive human work with software. 

In turn, he believes measuring the financial ROI of your RPA can be boiled down to a before-and-after – or old-versus-new – comparison. Old = how much effort was it taking before multiplied by the salary of the people doing the work. There aren’t too many CEOs or board members who complain that a particular initiative didn’t cost the company enough money. Cost savings are not the only way to measure results, however. The best metrics will inevitably vary by organization, industry, and other factors. 

Beyond costs, one of the best ways to think about how you’ll measure the efficacy of your RPA strategy is to think about metrics that reflect what RPA is good at. You can learn more about the types of tasks and processes that make good candidates for RPA in our recent post, How to identify Robotic Process Automation opportunities. Sure, there are quantifiable representations of job satisfaction, but you also need to talk to people and solicit feedback.
