What is RPA? Robotic Process Automation

Build and deploy software robots to perform repetitive tasks 24/7, freeing your staff for more creative & productive work.

RPA is short for Robotic Process Automation. An RPA solution transfers repetitive manual tasks from human workers to “digital workers” or “software robots”, also called “bots.”

A software robot can do many of the things that people can do: identify the content of a computer application or website, complete keystrokes, identify and extract data, and perform actions such as printing or sending emails. Bots reduce the chance for manual error in data entry and other repetitive tasks. Best of all, bots work 24/7, helping organizations manage workload peaks and make the most efficient use of their resources. 

How RPA Supports Your Digital Transformation

Support your critical business processes with automation to expedite workflows, optimize resources, and reduce errors.

Organizations today face multiple challenges, including global competition, stringent compliance requirements, chronic worker shortages combined with high turnover rates, a need for flexible work arrangements including the option to work remotely, high customer expectations, and more. In this environment, organizations are turning to digital transformation to not only increase efficiency, but also increase customer satisfaction and reduce risk.

Robotic Process Automation is a key element in any digital transformation. According to the 2017 Deloitte Global RPA survey of 400 organizations, 53% of respondents were already moving toward RPA. That number is expected to increase to 72% in the next two years, with “near-universal adoption within the next 5 years.”

In fact, in 2020 Deloitte reported that RPA was the number one “intelligent automation strategy” among respondents, with the number implementing had reached 78%, with another 16% planning to adopt within three years. Only 6% had no current plans.

In 2021, Pulse Research surveyed 246 technology leaders to learn which RPA initiatives had delivered the best ROI. User provisioning was top response at 26%, followed by RPA for customer service and support at 19%, and backup and restoration at 17%.

How to use Ranorex Studio for RPA

Ranorex Studio’s easy-to-use test automation tools can be easily adapted for Robotic Process Automation. Build and deploy software robots to perform repetitive tasks 24/7. Execute tasks in parallel, on physical or virtual machines. Ranorex is especially useful for automating workflows for legacy applications that may not have an API, or for third-party applications. 

Because Ranorex Studio is a test automation tool, the terms used in the interface are test-oriented. To use Ranorex Studio for RPA, all that is necessary is to create a test case (i.e., a bot) without a validation step. Your test case/bots will be organized into a test suite (i.e., a job).

For more information, refer to the list of the key differences in terminology:
