Explore the difference between RPA and RPA+

Robotic process automation (RPA) uses software robots to automate highly repetitive tasks so humans can focus on higher-value work. But which level of RPA is right for you?

Stand-alone RPA

RPA is an easy and affordable way to automate the highly repetitive tasks that many of your employees perform. It can be used to take those mundane, manual tasks off people’s plates — freeing them to focus on higher-priority work that requires human judgment, problem-solving or creativity.

With RPA, you can:

  • Use existing UIs, not APIs, to automate tasks.
  • Create, test and deliver new automated tasks in days or weeks.
  • Eliminate copy and paste mistakes that occur due to user error.
  • Fulfill automated tasks in seconds or minutes, around the clock.
  • Realize fast ROI as a result of increased speed and efficiency, and greater accuracy. 

 

RPA is a quick and easy solution that doesn’t necessarily optimize a process, but helps make it faster by automating manual tasks.

RPA+

RPA+ is standalone RPA combined with additional automation technologies that enable robotic process automation to be extended to more use cases. By adding workflow management, real-time decision making or data capture capabilities, you can gain even greater efficiencies and cost savings across a wider variety of automation tasks.

With RPA+, you can:

  • Address more RPA use cases.
  • Apply RPA as part of an orchestrated workflow, not as isolated tasks.
  • Incorporate real-time decision making into your bots.
  • Capture data from unstructured documents for use in automated tasks.

 

RPA+ enables a more integrated technology approach to optimizing and scaling your business operations. With RPA+, you can remix how work gets done while still taking advantage of the efficiency and speed of robotic process automation.
