Robotic process automation (RPA) is a fast and efficient way to acquire, enhance and deliver information from virtually any application or data source, including websites and portals, desktop applications, and enterprise systems, without any coding.
Information that was previously unattainable, unusable or costly to integrate is now readily consumable to drive employee productivity, add insight into the decision making process, and deliver a better customer experience.
There are three flavors of software robots.
You can now automate the acquisition and integration of data from websites and portals into business applications with web robots.
With RPA, critical market intelligence information can be acquired, integrated and delivered into the hands of decision-makers rapidly and cost effectively, removing common barriers related to data access, time-to-value and cost. Web robot applications include:
- Competitive Intelligence and Price Monitoring
- Market Data Aggregation
- Brand Monitoring
- Investment Research
- Background Screening
- IP and Fraud Detection
- Mobile Application Integration
- Sales Intelligence
- Government Data Aggregation
You can now automate repetitive, data-driven activities across websites, portals, and internal applications with process robots.
RPA automates manual, repetitive, information-driven processes where data and electronic documents need to be accessed and acted on as part of critical business processes. By leveraging the synthetic API technologies, organizations can quickly and easily deploy and customize integration flows regardless of whether existing APIs are available or the data is locked in applications. This includes Excel, websites, web portals, databases, and legacy applications. Organizations can also build intelligence into processes so more automated decision-making can occur – even with real-time, high-volume and unstructured data. Information critical to the business is now acquired, enhanced and delivered across the enterprise ecosystem to be used in innovative ways to achieve competitive advantage including:
- Shipping Data Aggregation
- Supply Chain Automation
- Customer Service & Support
- Compliance Monitoring & Reporting
- Financial Account Aggregation
- Accounts Receivable
- Process Automation
You can now automate the migration of content and data from legacy enterprise content management systems with content robots.
With RPA’s adaptable and versatile platform, enterprise organizations can quickly consolidate enterprise content from legacy web content and enterprise content management systems into Microsoft SharePoint and other modern ECM platforms. Content migration tasks are automated to minimize cost, time and labor, and metadata can be applied across both new and legacy content to ensure a seamless and optimal search experience.
