Robotic process automation (RPA), also known as software robotics, uses automation technologies to mimic back-office tasks of human workers, such as extracting data, filling in forms, moving files, and more. It combines APIs and user interface (UI) interactions to integrate and perform repetitive tasks between enterprise and productivity applications. By deploying scripts which emulate human processes, RPA tools complete autonomous execution of various activities and transactions across unrelated software systems.
Microsoft Power Automate, formerly known as Microsoft Flow, is a cloud-based automation and workflow automation platform developed by Microsoft. It allows individuals and organizations to create automated workflows and integrate various applications, services, and systems to streamline business processes, enhance productivity, and improve collaboration.
Microsoft Power Automate helps you automate recurring tasks and digital processes quickly and easily, which saves you time and reduces errors. Employees won’t need to spend their time at work on unproductive routine tasks. In Microsoft Power Automate, so-called “flows” are defined once and then run automatically without having to involve the IT department.
Microsoft Power Automate is the most reasonably priced, easy to use, fully integrated suite of Robotic Process Automation on the market. It enables you to build software bots that can perform repetitive tasks at a fraction of the price of other solutions making RPA technologies accessible to the mid-market for the first time. It also fully integrates with other Microsoft products, enabling you to ease deploy automation across your technology stack.
