Intelligent RPA

The Life Sciences industry is well past the golden age of blockbuster drugs, and faces challenges of declining pipeline, R&D budget cuts and more stringent regulations. The need for a solution to manage business operations efficiently, with greater speed and accuracy in a cost-effective manner has pushed the adoption of Robotic Process Automation (RPA).

LTI’s “Intelligent RPA” is a unique amalgamation of our in-depth understanding of complex processes across industries, coupled with our homegrown accelerators and technology enablers such as Advanced OCR, Workflow Orchestration, Cognitive Automation and Bot Analytics. Our solutions not only help eliminate repetitive, replicable, and routine-based tasks, but also handle tasks with decision-making capabilities effortlessly. These allow organizations to realign their human capital for strategic initiatives. Powered by Intelligent RPA, we equip organizations to bridge the gap between legacy systems and new-age applications at much lesser cost and in minimal time, entitling them to deliver exponential value to their customers.

LTI’s Intelligent RPA has made inroads within the Life Sciences space through the automation of the processes in the peripherals such as finance, sales inventory and supply chain and is now finding acceptance in core areas such as R&D, regulatory and post marketing activities such as pharmacovigilance.
