Cognitive Process Automation

Automation is an Industrial Age concept. Cognitive process automation takes this concept further to create a software which can sense, think, act, and learn while automating the processes. While CPA is a boon for companies performing high-volume transactional processes, it also supports job sustainability by freeing workers to complete tasks which require actual human cognition. Learn how we can help!

From construction jobs to traditional white-collar jobs such as Insurance, AI driven processing for operations is now becoming increasingly routine. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Cognitive Process Automation (CPA) techniques are today bringing automation to predictable, confidential, and information-sensitive manual processes which otherwise used to take a lot of time.

Flatworld, a reputed data science firm believes that process automation using AI provides a lot of benefits to the businesses and industries belonging to diverse verticals. Our cognitive process automation services are delivered by an exceptional team of data scientists and big data engineers with years of experience in deep analytics, AI, and Machine Learning to provide custom solutions to our clients.

What is Cognitive Process Automation?

Labor-intensive tasks are important, but mundane requirements for any business, however large or small. Whether it is initiating a service request, typing or keying in a transaction, filling an invoice, reporting, or responding to emails, such labor-intensive tasks are a big reason for escalating operating costs. This is where cognitive process automation comes in. In the simplest of terms, cognitive automation powers software to make its own judgements and perceive knowledge. Since it understands text in a way similar to human beings, you can expect better accuracy levels and of course faster processing for complex, information-heavy processes.

This intelligent automation technique is powered by Machine Learning tools, and can -

  • Perform fast extraction and matching of relevant data points from different unstructured documents
  • Easily identify products within an image or a video
  • Synthesize large volumes of information in a concise format

Cognitive Process Automation Services We Offer

Our robotic process automation with intelligence is complete domain agnostic and can be applied to any industry, however varied your requirements might be. This custom solution is ideal for companies who want to eliminate human intervention from dull, repetitive tasks that require little or no judgement. Our cognitive techniques can automate even the most complex judgement-based activities such as reconciliations and data entry when presented with unstructured data. The way our programs are built, the Machine Learning component ensures that it keeps learning from its mistakes and continuously improves its ability to learn.

Our big data-based process automation solution can -

  • Robustly extract enterprise data and insights from scanned and native digital documents, using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Automate repetitive, rule-based business processes like generating reports every hour, ordering reports from third-party website etc., and build an automation platform for your front office, back-office and other support functions
  • Make cognitive decisions where intelligence is required to make a judgement with the help of Artificial Intelligence
  • Become easily scalable by increasing the number of bots when volume of transactions increases
