What is RPA?

We believe human employees should focus on the work that we excel in while using robots to handle tasks that get in the way. RPA, otherwise known as robotic process automation, is a technology that makes it easy to build, deploy, and manage software robots that mimic human behavior. It works by orchestrating multiple systems, tools, platforms, and softwares. With the progression of RPA, it is viewed by many CIOs as the first step toward full automation and artificial intelligence.
