What if you could reduce your errors by 100 percent? What if you could increase your FTE [full-time equivalent] performance from one to three? What if you could reduce tasks that normally take 80 man-hours down to 45 minutes?

Robotic Process Automation is the technology that allows anyone to configure computer software, or a “robot” to emulate and integrate the actions of a human interacting within digital systems to execute a business process. UiPath’s RPA robots utilize the user interface to capture data and manipulate applications just like humans do. They interpret, trigger responses and communicate with other systems in order to perform on a vast variety of repetitive tasks. Only substantially better: a UiPath RPA software robot never sleeps, makes zero mistakes and costs a lot less than an employee.

This is software robotics. This is software that interacts with other software applications the same way a human does and performs those functions and services the same way a human does. It allows someone to be freed up from those more mundane, arduous tasks, time-consuming tasks, and free them up for higher-value jobs.
