Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has seen enormous growth in Pakistan’s digital landscape – more and more companies are adopting RPA as part of their digital transformation strategy, as well as startups are focusing on RPA to enable automated service features.

This article explores the state of RPA in Pakistan. We ferret out local companies’ investments in automation technology as well as recent startups utilizing RPA features in their application design. 

Companies are Investing in RPA Technology in Pakistan

No matter the type of industry, Robotics Process Automation does find its applications offering cost savings and process efficiency in any business. Research shows that an RPA robot costs less than one fifth of the expense an onshore worker requires, and could achieve work efficiency of a total of 3 million hours (surveyed on a Japanese bank in 2019) following RAP implementation. 

Take a deeper look at RPA and its relevance to AI in a comprehensive guide.

Big companies in Pakistan have specially taken part in automation to leverage the cost reduction and operational efficiency of RAP technology. We see this growing trend within industry through client case studies of various RPA service providers in Pakistan.

First we seek Abacus Consulting (PVT) Ltd. customer profile. 

Abacus – Global is Pakistan’s leading digital transformation service provider with its headquarter in Lahore.  The company specializes in Digital Transformation Services; this includes Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Integration platform as a service (IPaaS) and Intelligent API Management.  

Abacus sees an increase in the number of Pakistani companies approaching its RPA based ERP systems. For now it has served 23 out of 35 Fortune 100 companies in Pakistan with 150 to 300 enterprises taking services on an annual basis.

In the financial sector, Allied bank has opted for RPA in 2021 and automated its bank account handling processes and password change requests. The fifth largest commercial bank in Pakistan receives bank account management requests at large scale.

EFU Life Insurance Pakistan is the first insurance company of Pakistan to automate its business processes using RPA technology. After carrying out its RPA powered operations, it was soon awarded with ‘Best Tech Insurance Company of the Year’ award in July 2021. 

With such successful examples of RPA powered companies, it’s expected that small and medium sized businesses in Pakistan will follow the footsteps of big companies and take part in the RPA revolution. 

We spotted Automation in recent Tech Startups

Pakistan has recently produced a long list of technology startups which raised ginormous funding making way on international publishers such as Al-Jazeera and Mckinsey’s headlines.

In relevance to this article, we spot automation features of these tech startups to offer a hint on how much automation is utilized in the digital industry of Pakistan.

First startup is Metric – a founder friendly finance app, that automates the routine accounting tasks such as invoicing, tracking expenses and cash flows. Metric automates the use of data analytics and calculates insights on business health on a daily basis. The user sees these metrics on a dashboard.

Aurat Raj is another AI based startup that uses RPA to answer queries related to women well being. Raaji is a Pakistani multilingual chat bot that answers structured queries in an automated way.

These are just a few examples that automate routine, rule based business processes to facilitate customer services. 

To wind it up, the job market of RPA is soon going to flourish

The rise of RPA in Pakistan directly powers the RPA job market with companies looking for RPA analysts and developers to analyze business processes, identify waste and opportunity for improvement, and deploy RPA components for businesses. 

We visit job portals such as Indeed, LinkedIn, Upwork, and Rozee for RPA jobs and it turns out that the same companies require RPA analysts, and developers for facilitation in their automation journey.

With the continuation of RPA growth in Pakistan, we hope that it’s going to play a major role in digital economy of Pakistan.
