Did you know that January 14th is National Clean Off Your Desk Day? It’s a day to take time to clear your desk, and start the new year off with an uncluttered, clean, and organized workspace. But what to do with the stacks of paper and overflowing inbox? This is where bots can help.

Finding a bot to physically clean off your messy desk may be difficult, but if you make a New Year’s resolution to use software bots, i.e., Robotic Process Automation (RPA), to automate many of your current tasks and workloads, you will have a clean desk –and computer desktop – in no time.

Let’s say that you’re an HR manager and have stacks of candidate resumes in your inbox. You can use Automation Anywhere Enterprise RPA to categorize and prioritize the resumes according to the hiring manager’s requirements, automatically and virtually instantaneously. Likewise, you can automate the new employee onboarding process, the employee review process, and pretty much any other repetitive operation that takes too much time and keeps you from utilizing your real talent and innovating.

If you’re in accounting and you have invoice data that needs to be copied from NetSuite into Salesforce, you can train a cognitive bot to do it for you. Not only will the work get done quickly, it will also be done accurately. And with new compliance rules like ASC 606 now in force, being accurate is more important than ever.

Does your helpdesk need cleaning? Do you have queues that are too long for your important customers? Implement Automation Anywhere’s IQ Bot to take the first stab at a claim, validate the customer info, sense customer sentiment, and escalate the matter to a human representative for an immediate response.

Bots can even clean up the big data that has been piling up in your inbox and other systems. Use Automation Anywhere’s Bot Insight to record key data, perform analytics, and even provide predictive insight to help you make the best possible decisions in 2019.

So, let’s take today to clean off our desks – even if only the virtual desktop ones. Start today by signing up for Automation Anywhere’s 30-day free trial.
