Robotic process automation (RPA) is an exciting opportunity, but as with any emerging technology, it’s easy to think it’s “probably too expensive” for companies on a tight budget. Rolling-out software bots across an enterprise, across all processes and to fulfill many tasks can be quite an investment, yes, but there are also more realistic ways of getting started.
