Automated Data Validation and Verification
Automated data validation and verification can be applied to multiple business departments including:-
Finance – to substantiate the accuracy of financial transactions or authorisations – this could be by cross-checking it with a 3rd party system or, when information is available to give a high confidence level, to replace the human ‘sanity check’. Typical examples where this is used could be to check payment allocation suggestions, or to validate customer or supplier application forms through checking third party services, or current status on existing ERP systems. AP staff maybe validating data in multiple excel spreadsheets or google sheets, this can be performed by the software robots to save valuable time and money.
HR -Timesheet management, validation of employee personal emails, addresses and postcodes. The robots can even automatically update leaver status based on your rules to ensure payroll information is correct.

Benefits of RPA in data validation and data verification
Software robots will eliminate human errors in the processing of information. They can also help support compliance with your procedures ensuring the same process is followed, each and every time and where there’s an issue – for instance with an input value that doesn’t seem correct – they can flag it for a human to double check meaning you’re managing exceptions not everything that comes through.
