This research was conducted to understand the demand among mid-size and large enterprises for robotic process automation (RPA) software that automates manual, repetitive tasks such as steps within invoice processing, sales orders, payroll, employee onboarding, accounting reconciliation, and data entry.
Through the survey, Keypoint Intelligence gathered information from 825 respondents from mid-size to large companies who serve as manager level or higher with a role in IT, operations, sales, and logistics departments to identify where companies are investing or considering investing in automation. A focus on key vertical sectors included healthcare, financial services, banking, insurance, logistics, manufacturing, and education.
“This study focuses on the size and addressable market for current and future investment opportunities and shows that 48% of companies surveyed are allocating between 10% and 20% of their total annual budgets to document and process automation spending over the next 18 months,” noted Anne Valaitis, Principal Analyst of Keypoint Intelligence’s Managed IT Services. “Additional findings reveal that digital transformation (DX) initiatives are propelling automation technology forward. There is an increase in demand from buyers to apply technology to improve productivity, increase efficiency, and streamline operations to generate and maximize profit. Adoption will continue to increase as organizations realize the benefits of RPA.”
