Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
What is Robotic Process Automation (RPA)?
Robotic process automation (RPA) is a productivity tool that allows a user to configure one or more scripts (which some vendors refer to as “bots”) to activate specific keystrokes in an automated fashion. The result is that the bots can be used to mimic or emulate selected repetitive and rule based tasks within an overall business or IT process.
RPA can be deployed to execute the process automation across multiple systems, cloud solutions, and software-as-a-service offerings. With yonyou Robotic Process Automation services, you can redirect resources toward high-value activities and decision-making processes.
