Robocorp Unveiled the Findings of Its “State of RPA” Survey

Robocorp, an open-source RPA provider, yesterday announced the results of their “State of RPA” survey designed to understand the challenges users face with current RPA solutions and conducted online in May 2022. The findings of the survey uncovered some interesting perspectives from RPA users, specifically IT teams, and found that while the RPA industry is growing, current industry solutions are not meeting consumer standards.

The key takeaways indicate a clear need for more robust, more reliable, and reasonably priced technology:

  • RPA is a growing industry, with 67% of respondents investing in the technology in the past year.
  • However, a surprising 69% of survey respondents experience broken bots at least once per week. While the number varies across industries, it is particularly high in healthcare (80%), finance (84%), and manufacturing (70%).
  • 41% of respondents said it takes over 5 hours to fix a broken bot. Some respondents noted it takes 24 hours or more to fix a broken bot – specifically in the healthcare (44%), finance (48%), and manufacturing (38%) industries.
  • The survey reveals that 56% of respondents would benefit from the speed and flexibility of open-source RPA solutions. But 81% reported that only half or less of their RPA technology is open-source. Furthermore, 65% agreed that they would benefit from usage-based pricing.

“As RPA becomes increasingly more popular across industries and is often relied upon to drive company growth and success, the results from The State of RPA show that it’s time to progress to Gen2 RPA technology. As a leader in Gen2 RPA technology, we’re eager to help consumers make the switch and give them access to powerful open-source development tools that can help achieve their company’s automation goals.”
