- Yasmine Rodriguez VP of Product Management & RPA
Throughout my career, I witnessed the impact of technology and especially automation on people around me. From the simplest to the most complex process, software automation transforms the way we work and provides a better quality of life.
I was blessed with the opportunity to become an entrepreneur and lead a development team in the creation of a Payroll Tax application. This was a huge automation undertaking involving thousands of complex processes and procedures. Obviously, the approach had to follow strict development rules. Decades later the same rules still apply when approaching an automation opportunity:
RPA technology provides a rapid, reliable automation solution that can replace and/or compliment any manual simple and/or complex processes; just let your imagination go and leverage all tools and existing technologies.
It is satisfying to listen to the excitement of coworkers, customers and leadership following the deployment of an accurate reliable and efficient solution that reduces time, errors, and operating expenses.
I am the VP, Product Management and RPA with direct responsibility for a team of 8 developers, analysts, and product managers. As a team, we are responsible for rolling out new products and services for our customers as well as assessing opportunities to improve end-to-end processes through digital automation. In just a short 18 months, we have eliminated thousands of hours of manual effort.
I also indirectly manage our team supporting our proprietary TaxEx Payroll Tax solution (I was the entrepreneur responsible for creating the state of the market US Payroll Tax Solution) to continue to enhance and ensure compliance with constantly changing regulations.
Creating innovative solutions is at the core of the OSV culture. Automation is key to our success in many aspects of our business. RPA empowered us to rapidly and cost effectively build solutions that interact across all internal and external applications. Solutions that may be doable without RPA; but would require a tremendous number of work hours and resources. RPA allows us to automate time consuming and error prone manual processes to free up time for more important tasks and to dramatically improve reliability.
I am truly honored and humbled to be named to this elite group of innovators. I have spent my entire career focused on delivering technology solutions to the market. I have been re-energized and very excited about the ability to merge traditional development with digital automation. My greatest sense of accomplishment comes from continuously creating and innovating. Sometimes it feels like the true American dream for a Lebanese shy girl with big dreams. Thanks for helping make one more dream goal come true!
Misconceptions such as these are simply a lack of understanding. As with any new technology, as more companies embrace RPA, they will realize that
Pairing RPA with AI disciplines augments the automation spectrum. It will no longer just be automating repetitive mundane “unintelligent tasks”, it will be implementing the decision-making factor and the cognitive learning. The era of the “digital worker”, a worker with skill sets similar to a human is here. The time is here where digital assistants can transform our way of life and provide support to our working force.
Automation Anywhere has proven time and again why they are a leader in the market. COVID-19 has created a situation no one globally was prepared for. Our ability to be very nimble and rapidly support a government tax relief program within four days was truly market leading.
