RPA+BPMS Symbiosis


An RPA system can be successfully integrated with a BPM system. In this case, the systems symbiosis allows you to automate large business processes and leave tedious tasks for robots.

Automate the processes,
not task chains

RPA is a technology for task automation using software robots. This is an ideal
tool that can be quickly set up to take tedious tasks off your employees’ hands.

Tasks alone are not as valuable for a company as business processes. Any company needs effective business processes. So, rather than automating separate tasks, you should focus on the automation of the processes.

RPA does not have the capabilities to organize communication, configure the escalation, create systems of metrics and KPIs, or execute other business process tasks. The best solution for these tasks is BPMS.

RPA + BPMS synergy

RPA and BPMS make a great combination. BPMS orchestrates the process, it manages the employees, robots, and external systems, while robots execute tedious tasks instead of people. This combined power of the systems creates a synergy between them.

In a BPM system robots and people work to achieve a common goal – execution of business processes. Robots execute tedious tasks quickly and error-free, leaving the creative and more important tasks to their human colleagues.

BPMS recognizes robots as virtual users. They receive tasks and the system tracks their progress. Their actions are recorded and logged. You can access them any time you want.

  • The system treats robots as people, their actions are
    recorded, and the history is saved
  • RPA bot receives tasks from ELMA. When the task is
    complete, the bot reports the values of the
    corresponding process variables back to ELMA
  • You can initially plan business processes for robots, or
    launch their work step by step
  • You can see the bot tasks on the process diagram.
    This helps you to have an easier time reading and
    analyzing the diagram
