Intelligent Process Automation

The engine at the core of automating repetitive, replicable, and routine tasks.

According to McKinsey

Automating 50–70% of tasks 
can reduce your annual run-rate by 20–35%.

What is IPA?

Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) is a toolbox of multiple advanced technologies all working in concert to help simplify interactions and speed up processes through automation. IPA combines the powers of:

  • Machine Learning (ML)
  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
  • Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
  • Automatic Machine Learning (AutoML)

Just like a strong team of colleagues, IPA has the potential to be greater than the sum of its parts. Leveraging all these technologies to work in harmony allows for a highly productive, symbiotic workflow. Tackle entire processes from end-to-end instead of addressing individual tasks.

IPAs benefit entire organizations by enhancing the efficiency of a whole swath of tasks, leaving the tedium to the machines and freeing people to focus on their main strengths. This will inevitably lead to more agility and responsiveness as a whole organization, less human error, and an increase in customer satisfaction.  

Impira’s IPA

Going further together

Impira’s IPA suite is set apart from the pack due to our unique combination and deployment of key technologies. This allows us to provide complete solutions that our users can implement to drive success, amplify their core strengths, and accelerate productivity. Our IPA effectively mimics the information processing behavior of your best employees, applies thinking and judgment toward problems, and learns by recognizing patterns and responding quickly. Impira’s ability to adjust and learn in real-time removes barriers that hamper productivity. The technologies that make up Impira's IPA are:

Our machine learning algorithms identify patterns within your documents and automatically apply learnings across multiple documents. Just like students learn lessons and are then able to apply their learnings to new problems, machine learning does the same and allows for scalability and adaptability. We also mix in a bit of machine learning to our OCR process, creating Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR).

Optical Character Recognition

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is technology that essentially “reads” the words on your document. OCR is the eyes of this entire operation. It recognizes words by converting pixels of text characters and reads additional metadata like geometry, size, and page number.

No code

Without knowing a single line of code, users can harness the power of machine learning to create their own models for data extraction. These machine learning models adapt and update automatically in real-time. All this happens within an elegant, intuitive interface with minimal input and interactions from a user.

We learn by having a database of all the examples you process through us.

The value of Intelligent Process Automation:

Teamwork makes the dream work

While each of these technologies above are powerful on their own, deploying them individually isn’t enough. By uniting these through an IPA platform, you can take a strategic approach far beyond just automating individual tasks. Instead, you can automate entire processes across your enterprise, benefiting both employees and customers.

Robots and humans work smarter together

AI can make humans much more efficient at form processing, and integrating robots and keeping a human in the loop allows a system to be more accurate and flexible.

Free up time

With Impira’s IPA, employees are no longer forced to take time away from helping customers and to complete repetitive tasks. Employees only need to step in to confirm data extraction matches to help improve the machine learning models. They can step away confidently knowing their models will do the bulk of their work for them.

Minimize risk

You can remove the risk of compounding human error by reducing incorrect data entry on forms, invoices, or files. Taking it a step further, Impira AutoML sets up custom machine learning models that learn from your interactions and automatically update in real time as you work.

End-to-end process visibility

By using one combined system to automate your entire process, you can now see where bottlenecks occur, so you can automate or improve those tasks within Impira. Keeping all these technologies under one roof allows for more visibility across multiple teams.
