You can’t automate until you standardize... at “nano-scale”

Robotic process automation or RPA is grabbing the headlines in finance. 

But here’s what isn’t: The standardization required to employ it.

Right now, your people, systems, and procedures are sprawling across an under-standardized spaghetti mess that’s costing you margin leakage, sales and service effectiveness, and customer-experience gains. 

Where are the most valuable, RPA-worthy use-cases hiding? 

In plain sight—at the “nano-scale”—lurking at the edges of existing technology. 

We’re talking keystroke-level activities—scrape, paste, reconcile, transfer—that encompass daily drudge-work on core platforms such as SAP ERP, Oracle Financial Cloud, Jamis Prime ERP, or Infor Lawson. In CRMs like Salesforce and MS Dynamics. In databases like SQL Server and Azure. In peripheral systems like Excel, Outlook, and Acrobat.

And, more insidiously, they hide deep in the know-how of employees: In the well-intentioned but under-documented tribal knowledge and workarounds that generate tens of thousands of hours of wasted effort, reduced productivity, and missing margins.

What is Nano-Scale Standardization?

The important thing to understand about RPA is that, despite bot vendors’ claims, it’s hardly plug-and-play. And it’s far from do-it-yourself. 

In other words, RPA requires a foundation of standardization.

Little wonder, then, that most home-grown automation projects fizzle out after fewer than ten bots—when literally hundreds of use-cases are all around. 

And RPA implementations for finance operations that deliver massively valuable benefits standardize at shockingly granular levels— all the way down to the “nano-scale,” including:

  • “Gut-feel” budgeting decisions made by lines of business
  • Out-of-control, incomprehensible general ledger entries
  • Under-documented “rules of thumb” for the monthly close
  • One-off, “fire-drill” report requests
  • Thousands of recurrent, repetitive reconciliations
  • Plus much more

Standardizing these “nano-scale” tasks has historically been nobody’s job:

Not tech vendors’.

Not businesses’.

Not conventional consultants’.

But The Lab does it, daily.

Finance ops automation, made fast—and easy

Using Nano-Scale Standardization, The Lab delivers blazing-fast automation of processes that are currently held together, informally, with “human glue.” 

We’re talking up to 45x human speed. We’re talking error rates of zero. We’re talking tens, even hundreds of thousands of hours of manual drudge work…eliminated forever. 

We’re also talking about the most valuable processes that aren’t getting done—or done enough. Like cross-selling existing customers and prospecting for new ones. Imagine all that… automated. 

The Lab installs bots, remotely, in just a matter of weeks. 

How are we so fast? We’ve standardized our own, nano-scale work activities. We have bots that map business processes. We use only the best U.S.-based RPA bot developers and project managers, all from our offices in Houston. Nothing’s outsourced or offshored. Ever.

See what you’ve been missing

Imagine all of your newly-standardized data, appearing right before your eyes as a real-time visualization. Everything from profits and losses, to operational performance, to monitoring top customers, employees, and products, and much, much more. 

But that’s just the beginning. 

The Lab can install “lookout bots” to detect “red flags” in your data—and then send out real-time alerts to management, finance staff, and key executives! With Nano-Scale Standardization from The Lab, all this capability is at your fingertips.
